Our Education Footprint

Monitoring impact for sustainable results

We  select the school we work with as your Corporate Social Investment should not be a cost to company but an investment in our human capital and  leave a legacy.

We interview School Governing Body with our Programme Coordinator to ensure that educators and School management Team Members will commit towards the School Enrichment Programmes while educators will provide support to our beneficiaries. Learners will also be selected by Valued Citizens Initiative according to their will-power to commit to our programmes and character identified through a psychometric test designed with our Clinical Social Worker.

These pre-selection criteria allow our partners to invest on fertile soil to provide opportunities and sustainable solutions to the youth from our urban, rural and townships areas. Our programmes answer to the needs of our country, the National Development Plan and the new BBBEE codes to be implemented from October 2014.  

Our tools to measure success throughout the years assess the quantitative and qualitative of our programmes, and are composed of the following methods:
  • Personal, Peer and Learner’s assessment
  • Quality management forms completed by the beneficiaries after each module
  • Quarterly one-on-one interviews with learners
  • Behaviour analysis
  • Statistics  - Pool for HR created
  • Quarterly operational report and financial report every semester provided to partners and stakeholders from District to national levels

I dare say ‘ziya jika izinto’ (things are starting to change) and we at Valued Citizens Initiative are enthralled to be at the front line of that change through our Values in the Lead professional development programme.

This month we honoured, celebrated and rewarded 149 educators and School Management Team members from 25 public primary and high schools that have completed successfully this programme. Teachers are the backbone of our society, they not only teach and mould our children but they help groom and raise our leaders. Leadership is transferrable, and through this programme we assist educators to ignite and reignite their own leadership flames in order to awaken learners they encounter.
