MBE Consulting has been supporting the Wesolve4x Foundation since 2020 and in that short time, their drive to provide maths lessons in deprived communities has gone from strength to strength.
The Wesolve4x team believe all children have a right to access education. To support this, they have set up a programme that combines free maths lessons with a grocery provision service. Not only do they teach children, but they also teach maths to the parents, empowering them to monitor and facilitate their children’s homework.
Wesolve4x have summarised their approach using this simple but highly effective model:
Wesolve4x = Maths + Parents – Hunger
In this recent SABC news interview (17 August 2021), Wesolve4x’s CEO Tsietsi Ngobese explains how the programme works and the difference it makes.
Making a difference to Mzinto Primary School
Mzinto Primary School located in Kwa Bhaca Mzinto village, Mount Frere, Eastern Cape is part of Wesolve4x’s Adopt a School programme. In August Wesolve4x adopted this school to teach free maths lessons to both children and parents and to provide groceries to their families.
‘Mrs Mafeke, grandmother of students Linamandla, Sinalo, Sinikeziswe called in tears to thank us for grocery hampers which will last her family a month and for the maths lessons giving hope to her grandchildren to escape poverty.’
Whilst there, the Wesolve4x team found that the school hasn’t had proper toilet facilities for the past 38 years. This has led them to start raising funds to improve the sanitation of the school.
At MBE we were humbled by the work Wesolve4X do. What many of us take for granted is life-changing for these children and their families. We are so proud to support the Wesolve4x Foundation.
