Enroll, Educate, Empower
The goal of Impact Kids is to reach and educate the underprivileged, orphaned and at risk children, with quality, caring Christian education. Since February 2010, the first successful and fully functional location has been thriving in the Kya Sands Squatter Camp; home to approximately 27,300 Africans. In 2012 our second Impact Kids Preschool was established in the community of Diepsloot. The Diepsloot Preschool Center is also a self-sustaining, job creating facility that educates the orphaned vulnerable children (OVC) as well as other at risk children. In 2014 we opened our third preschool in Kwaggafontein, which is located about two hours outside of Johannesburg in a more rural area.
Impact Kids Preschool has become a successful reproducible African model. Our goal is to continue to expand, launching sites in informal settlements throughout Southern Africa. These schools are a prime example of NGO’s, local churches, corporate businesses and communities working together to create a solution to these devastating circumstances of Southern Africa.
Research shows that up to half of an individual’s capacity to learn have been established by age four. Statistically, the school drop out rate of children is reduced by 60% if they attend preschool. Therefore, education of the young is imperative and an investment in the future of a community, a people group, and ultimately an entire country. Impact Kids is a place of refuge, love and hope for children where they receive quality education in a stable and safe learning environment.
Emphasis is on the Preschool and Kindergarten (Grade R) level to capture the little ones from an early age. The curriculum used at Impact Kids focuses on the development of the children’s cognitive, adaptive, social, behavioral, gross and fine motor skills.
Be on the lookout for multiple new campuses in 2016 and 2017!
What a timely opportunity before us, helping to educate children living in the poorest of communities. In doing so we increase school readiness and give them a tangible touch of God’s love during their most formative years of life. Community leaders, the local church and Impact Africa staff works together to identify the most needy of children for sponsorship from the informal settlements.
