With the generous sponsorship of RAM Hand-to-Hand Couriers over the past couple of years SmartBrain and Worldwide Literacy have been able to help give the Grade R learners of Bellville South Primary School in Cape Town a solid foundation as they embark on their schooling.

These learners are from vulnerable, previously disadvantaged homes and many come from homes still stricken with poverty and social ills. The feedback from teachers as they confidently send these learners to Grade 1 has been overwhelmingly positive and SmartBrain has become a well-loved member of the Bellville South family.


With the Covid-19 pandemic offering significant challenges in delivering the programme since the 2nd term of 2020, SmartBrain and Worldwide Literacy have invested significant resources into developing an online platform (seen in action below) to minimise the risk to staff, facilitators and learners. This platform is now implemented by SmartBrain in one-on-one sessions and in groups with great success!
