Help our youngest children and reduce dropout rates!
As a young student, you likely took a second language in school. This was your only exposure to the language because at home, in the community and even in the classroom, you still spoke your native tongue. What if, after 3 years of classes in Grade 4, all of your school assessments and lessons were given in the second language? Would your grades have dropped? Would you have even learned?For millions of students throughout South Africa, this is their reality.It’s not hard to imagine how this negatively impacts learning, pass rates and even access to jobs later in life. Most children in the townships of Langa speak isiXhosa as their mother tongue and English as their second language. This makes it difficult for children to communicate and express themselves effectively in English as their vocabulary is limited. Even as children continue to learn, their grammar is poor, with many gaps from pre-school/primary school.The children are expected to have a good reading level in order to cope with the workload. Nonetheless, the reality is very different as by this stage the children don’t have a good foundation in English; they don’t have the language and reading level to understand and manage the work of content subjects and math. We need your help. Project Playground South Africa aims to change this and to provide a strong foundation that will pave the way for the use of English in school and academic activities. No one can do everything. But everyone can do something. Donate today, every contribution counts..Your donation will contribute to:Enable expansion of our ESL (English as a Second Language) program to include our youngest participants in Grade 1, 2 and 3.Increase knowledge of English and reduce dropout rates. Because we know what happens early in life, matters a lifetime. Play Saves Lives!Thank you for being our hero!#projectplayground #projectplaygroundsa #ESL #playbuildsfutures

A Christmas for everyone?
Christmas 2021 will probably be one of the most difficult Christmases for children in Project Playground's operations in South Africa. Many families living in vulnerability have been hit hard by the pandemic and the country still has high unemployment. Several of the children have lost family members due to Covid, and with continued isolation, it will be difficult for the children in vulnerability to feel the joy of Christmas. For many, Christmas is the most difficult time of the year, families cannot afford gifts or food and, in many homes, abuse and violence escalate. When the school is closed, the children have nowhere else to go but the street - perhaps the most dangerous place for a child to be. PROJECT PLAYGROUND provides holistic, capacity-strengthening programs and support to over 400 children aged 3 to 18 who live in the townships of Langa and Gugulethu outside Cape Town. The areas are socially and economically disadvantaged, in a country with an absent support system. Many of our children face daily challenges as a result of living in poverty: neglect, abuse, malnutrition, poor access to education and a lack of positive and loving role models, something that is worsened during the pandemic and isolation. The heart of our work is our centers - safe places for children and youth where they can develop just be children. Our facilitators meet the children's physical and emotional needs, including being positive and loving role models and often take on the role of teacher, sibling, parent and friend. Every year we hold a Christmas party for all the children in our operations. At the Christmas party they get to play, eat a good and nutritious meal, they get Christmas candy and a Christmas gift - a sign of love and support which is especially important as many of our children do not feel loved or supported at home.
