Teach Out, Cape Town, South Africa

Teach Out, Cape Town, South Africa. 2011

‘Education and mentorship are key to the development of contemporary South Africa. Our work targets the next generation of South Africans and strives to make a tangible difference to the way they view their futures’. (TeachOut website.)

Through Chantal d’Offay, a third year English Literature and Classical Studies student at the University of Cape Town, I heard about the TeachOut programme and spent an afternoon at Intsebenziswano Secondary School, in Philippi. UCT students offer extra tuition to the pupils in a black township.
