Our education impact
We are proud that our after-school education activity improves the children’s school performance!
The last two years have been extremely challenging for school children attending public schools in townships, which due to COVID-19 could not continue education for all learners and were unable to offer a suitable online learning experience. Under these unique circumstances the benefit of the Surfpop program in providing a safe and well-resourced learning environment has been evident.
Since 2019, the Surfpop learners have achieved a 100 percent pass rate and each year outperformed the national average for Maths and English. Between 2020 and 2021, Surfpop learners improved their Maths performance with 5 percent and their English performance with 7 percent, while at the national level the average performance deteriorated with 0.2 percent and 1.5 percent respectively during this period.
