Silikamva Support Programme
Lerato Moloi uses a bitter personal experience to motivate others to greatness. After failing her grade 11, Moloi, 27, went back to school, passed her matric with distinctions, got a bursary, studied at the University of Cape Town and graduated with a Bachelor of Social Sciences degree. She is now founding director of Silikamva Support Programme, an educational initiative that prepares other youngsters for academic success through using a relatable method of teaching and coaching. Moloi uses her story to inspire the learners. Her organisation offers a differentiated curriculum aimed at inspiring grade 10, 11 and 12 learners to acquire a quality National Senior Certificate so they could go to tertiary and brighten their prospects of employment afterwards. Her organisation offers English and Mathematics, essential subjects for learners to make it in life. “We invite a wide range of experts in their respective fields to share information of their experience with their careers in the real world,” Moloi says. “We offer a curriculum that bridges the knowledge gap and creates a culture of a star student and exposes learners to careers in different industries.” Moloi uses a relaxed approach to teaching, keeping learners interested and motivated.
