In addition to running the Mathsbuddy programme and the Computer Training for Teachers at No-ofisi Primary, our energetic volunteers have also initiated extramural sport activities at Xhora Mouth Senior Primary.
Because we had already set up all the hardware and had sorted the logistics to run the Mathsbuddy programme at No-ofisi Primary, we thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to leverage our resources and offer the teachers computer lessons at the same time.
Having spent a considerable amount of time trying to find the best computer programme for access to the Mathematics School Curriculum from Grade 1 to 12, we decided on Mathsbuddy. This interactive online programme supplements the mathematics classroom work, assisting teachers and keeping learners interested and entertained while they are learning.
Over the past few years, the BI has worked with the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial) and DrinC (manufacturers of the Nazava-style water filter) in the development of a cost-effective water filter for use in rural households without access to potable water.
