The proposed practitioner training will be a foundation to develop practitioner’s skills base to ensure that further learning and development can take place to further develop practitioner’s skillsets to ensure alignment with the minimum requirements as set out in the National Integrated Early Childhood Development Policy. In our 1st year of operation in the sector, we will conduct an assets and skills mapping assessment that will assist us develop programmes for this vital sector.


Provision of Education Resources and Play Equipment:

Early Childhood Development for children between the ages of 0 and 6 years is critical in determining the success of the child’s academic foundations. It is with this belief that Boikanyo Solar will prioritise ECD Centres requiring educational resources and play equipment, both of which are vital for development.


Minor repairs at ECD Centres

As part of this programme, Boikanyo Solar will assess the condition of ECD Centres in the Siyancuma Local Municipality and appoint local service providers to conduct the repairs and/or maintenance as general maintenance of the ECD facilities is often neglected due to lack of funds.

ECD Centres are largely dependent on the Government subsidy and school fees to sustain its operations, which are often not reliable. This places an additional burden on the ECD Centres as their core focus is on the child.



A Life Skills Programme (“LSP”) that supports young people in the development of skills to deal with the pressures of adolescence is being implemented. The programme is intended to instil life skills needed to navigate the journey to adulthood. We believe that negative behaviour displayed during adolescence, if left unaddressed, often manifests in substance abuse and gender-based violence. The intervention will be focused on skills development initiatives and the non-academic development of youth.



Access to tertiary studies is a high priority within the beneficiary communities, hence full tertiary scholarships will be made available to qualifying learners to attend Universities and TVET Colleges. The Scholarship Programme will be implemented in accordance with the Management Services Company Policy on Scholarships.



A small percentage of the SED budget will be made available for the implementation and support of goodwill projects, known as our ‘Hearts and Minds Initiatives’. These projects will be supported according to merit.
