This year Prochorus Franschhoek started an after school program through the involvement of volunteers, with the hope that the blueprint can be duplicated all across the valley, and most specifically in the nearby township. Through this program we wish to empower community members to reach grades R-11 through the encouragement and development of the whole child during after school hours.
In our community, learners often spend many hours of their day in the streets, waiting for absent or working parents and guardians. Through providing a safe space for learners to receive academic tutoring, create art, play sport, participate in cultural activities, hold debates and discussions, and receive spiritual and emotional support we believe that we can make a transformative impact on these learners. Through reaching the vulnerable children of our community at a crucial stage in their development, we believe that we can also make a long-lasting impact on the community as a whole.
