PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE


SACTWU’s  Edu-Peg program continues to make great strides. This Program provides educational  material and practical assistance to promote numeracy and literacy in primary schools located in poor and under-developed communities.  A report tabled to the union’s National Executive Committee meeting last week shows that Edu-Peg has already reached 65 043 learners in 183 South African schools covering 1 842 educators, during the first quarter of this year. 

This is a solid trade union contribution to the commitments made in the New Growth Path’s Basic Education Accord signed last year by the NEDLAC constituency organisations (government, labour, business and community).

SACTWU took control of Edu-Peg in 1998, and over the years has quietly rendered practical numeracy and literacy improvement assistance to thousands of learners and educators in hundreds of schools.

A collaboration with Rhodes University and a 20-school, VWSA funded project will commence next term in the Eastern Cape.

Edu-Peg is a registered Section 21, not for profit company. See more @ www.edupeg.co.za
