We at SAJAG strive to live up to our name by staying alert to and recognisinggaps in information and opportunities within the domain of education, wheresuch gaps are rampant. We bridge these gaps through capacity buildingprogrammes with students to prepare them for seeking better opportunities infuture. Most of our students are first generation learners, with nobody to fallback on, within the family, with respect to education or for school work. TheSAJAG model builds collaborations with parents, schools, teachers, the localmunicipal corporation and volunteers to provide educational support to firstgeneration learners. We witnessed tremendous improvement in learninglevels. We started in 2016 with seven children and progressed to 25 in a year.Currently we are associated with a hundred and six students across primaryschool years.
At SAJAG our goal is to build foundational skills: basic reading, writing,comprehension, mathematics, computer use and communication. We believethat these skills enable students to obtain higher education and broaden theirhorizon on to a world of greater knowledge, information, technology,employment and, eventually empower them to aspire to a better future.
Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate. Ineducated families, children make role models and attempt to learn; whetherfrom parents or extended kin. This is not possible for first generation learners.SAJAG works rigorously toward basic primary education so that students canattain further qualifications, seek better livelihood opportunities and in turn,become role models for younger siblings and others in the community.
