Thanda / Creative Learning for Rural Children

Self-esteem, creativity, perspective – these skills are so rarely a priority in educational settings and yet, South Africa’s youth struggle to pass matric or find employment. Thanda's Creative Learning Curriculum is implemented in classrooms after school. The curriculum disrupts traditional educational models by moving away from rote memorisation – aiming to build academic skills (literacy, numeracy, and empirical thinking) as well as Game-changing Skills (Creativity, Empathy, Self-esteem, Critical thinking, and Perspective) that are necessary for developing resilient, lifelong learners who feel empowered to create a better world.
