Thank you very much for the training. We learnt so much from you and how to run the programme... This was interesting and we really enjoyed it.

I am extremely grateful for being exposed to this programme … I'm always worried about those learners who are not progressing. The programme can support these learners in order to lay the foundation for academic progress. Practically my whole class needs this Foundation!!! How can I start with formal teaching if they do not know their Basics.

Good work, keep it up and do the same for my colleagues. This work could help save the children of South Africa … and give them hope for a better future.

What I understand about the Basic Concepts Programme is that it is very useful in all subjects. I must implement it in every lesson. I must also try to be as accurate and precise as possible when teaching.

I have learned so much through the Kwena Basic Education Trust and for that I would like to take this opportunity to say: thank you.

Kwena Basin Education Trust: Project Visit, May 2016

The training was very effective and informative … and gave us insight into how to teach and develop language. I wish there could be more of such training to develop ourselves further.
