Phenduka Literacy and Maths Project

The Phenduka Literacy Project is committed to improving the learning and teaching of literacy and mathematics at Middle School level in four of the primary schools in the township of Alexandra, in Johannesburg. It does this through the diagnostic testing and remedial teaching of Grade 7 students at the 4 schools served, and through the running of workshops to improve the proficiency and effectiveness of teachers in developing literacy skills. The choice of Middle School level for intervention is to ensure that learners do not enter High School with literacy and mathematics levels inadequate for learning
