MASIPHUMELELE

 

Siyanqoba Educare is an independently-owned pre-school located in an informal settlement in the southern Cape Peninsula.  Although outside donor funding has made AmazingBrainz interventions possible here, the pre-school remains a privately-owned business.  The autonomy of the local owners has been important for us to respect, meaning that the development road has involved close co-operation of all the role-players involved. 

PORTERVILLE
 

After a situational analysis was performed on San Lucar’s Rooihoogte Farm in the latter part of 2014, mentoring and coaching in the farm pre-school began in January 2015.  Day Programme and Early Stimulation training was completed at the end of July 2015 and this is now a fully functioning AmazingBrainz creche. Mentoring and coaching visits by an AmazingBrainz trainer are ongoing. 

PAARL
 

Ligstraal School for LSEN (Learners with Special Education Needs) began as a pilot project in 2015 to evaluate the effectiveness of the Day Programme for children with cognitive and physical developmental challenges. Improved self-confidence, communication, vocabulary and increased inter-personal awareness have been some of the results.  Thanks to these results and further donor funding, the AmazingBrainz Day Programme is being rolled out to all six classes in the Foundation Phase in 2016. 

SOMERSET WEST

 

Helderberg Outreach, an NPC founded by the NG Church Helderberg, has been involved in assisting three farm and community pre-schools in the Somerset West area for many years.

DE DOORNS
 

AmazingBrainz began working in the community on Kleinberg Kriegler Farm in the Hex River Valley in 2012.  The needs here were initially for a health post and the provision of psycho-social services amongst adults in the community. Our involvement in the pre-school began in 2015.  This is a great example of our holistic approach and gradual implementation of interventions tailor-made to suit the needs of the specific site. 

HOPETOWN
 

Together with Caritas Community Focus, we began implementing the AmazingBrainz Day Programme at two pilot roll-out sites in the Northern Cape (Hopetown and Strydenburg) in 2012.  We are currently exploring ways we can collaborate with Caritas to extend our roll out and broaden our impact in the Northern Cape.

VILLIERSDORP
 

Our pilot project situated on Theewaterskloof Farm.  Development work here began in 2008 and served as an ‘incubator’ where the AmazingBrainz Day Programme was conceived and refined.  Active mentoring and coaching was completed at the end of 2013 and this pre-school now functions as a sustainable AmazingBrainz pre-school, with only ad-hoc visits by an AmazingBrainz mentor and coach. 

 
WINDHOEK
 

A pilot project was launched in Namibia in 2014.  Staff at two independently-owned pre-schools in informal settlements in Windhoek (Maria's Pre-school and Butterfly Pre-school) have received AmazingBrainz day programme training and implement the programme.  The possibility of establishing an AmazingBrainz Namibia to facilitate further roll-out is currently being explored.

CITRUSDAL
 

Initial discussions with Heidedal Farm in the Citrusdal area began in the spring of 2014.  Preliminary visits were conducted early in 2015 and operational training and lifeskills interventions began in the winter of 2015. AmazingBrainz Day Programme and Early Stimulation training is currently underway at Babbel Bekkies Kleuterskool on the farm.
