In South Africa:
- 250 000 children do not go to school, AT ALL.
- 1/4 of our schools do not offer Maths or Science.
- 2.3 million go to bed with no meal.
- 1/4 of toddlers are nutritionally stunted – severely compromising their brain development.
We are all trying to right the terrible imbalance created by our exclusionary past. Yet we are not – collectively, as people and corporate citizens – focusing sufficiently on the most fundamental requirement for this change to come about with any degree of required impact and sustainability. And that is education – starting with Early Childhood Development (ECD), and keeping a focus all the way through to tertiary and preparation for a working world.
We can change this. We have to change this.
