Reading is the key to learning... unlock the door this Mandela Day. International studies have revealed that regardless of nationality, level of education, or their parents’ economic status, children who grow up with books in their homes reach a higher level of education than those who do not.

“A child’s ability to learn is not only affected by the quality of teaching, the state of their classroom and the quality of their books.
As we observe Child Protection Week from 27 May to 02 June, the Adopt-a-School (AAS) Foundation calls upon government, NGOs and civil society to combine their efforts to protect vulnerable children against neglect, abuse and exploitation. Unless children are properly nurtured and protected from harm, no amount of improvement to schooling will yield better educational outcomes.

The advancement of women in business improves bottom-line performance and strengthens corporate culture, which ultimately drives GDP and socio-economic development. That’s the view of Graça Machel, founder of the Graça Machel Trust. Mrs Machel was delivering the keynote address at the Trialogue Business in Society Conference in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 16 May 2017.

But, while much admirable work is being done to put roofs over the heads of increasing numbers of South Africans, true redress in the area of human settlements requires that stakeholders go beyond merely erecting masses of low cost houses.
