Gugulethu

The Amy Foundation Afterschool Programme Centres at Siyazingisa Primary School in Gugulethu each serve an average of 250 children. They attend Monday to Thursday afternoon each week. The programme is offered free of charge to the learners. A similar programme is held every morning during the school holidays. Children are offered something to eat and drink

Learners can choose from the variety of programmes which we have on offer depending upon available facilitators: Marimba, Traditional Dance, Literacy for the Intermediate Phase, Greening (vegetable gardening) and Environmental Education, Drama, Peer Education (life skills), Foundation Phase (basic literacy, maths and motor skills development through play), Choir, Kwaito Dance, Sports (Netball, Soccer, Hockey and Cricket). Classes are taught by our very dedicated and enthusiastic facilitation staff.

At Siyazingisa Afterschool Centre we are very fortunate to have Uthando South Africa as one of our partners. Uthando South Africa run tours focusing on social improvement and innovation in SA and from time-to-time they bring visitors to see our work and the positive impact we are having on the community.
