Businesses are able to gain BEE points on their Socio-Economic Development (SED) spend by partnering with Sangari Education. We have a proven track record in implementing and managing successful educational solutions that enhance learning outcomes.

Many South African schools are under-resourced, lack effective teaching tools and have ill-equipped science laboratories. Sangari Education, a level 2 B-BBEE contributor with a 22-year history of success, has helped many schools achieve excellent results. We have a tax-effective mechanism for companies to make meaningful social investment contributions with the benefits of ticking the boxes of their B-BBEE scorecards. Sangari Education has pioneered systems that give teachers the tools and the support they need to sharpen their skills and become more effective in the classroom.

Solutions include:

  • The iBox – This is a multimedia device that transforms any classroom into a fully interactive learning environment that enhances the teaching and learning process. It makes available a hub of information – content and knowledge – that advances teacher proficiency by assisting with curriculum delivery. Sangari’s extensive CAPS aligned STEM content is fully sanctioned by the National Department of Education. Lessons are conveniently organised by grade, by subject, by term and by week to make curriculum delivery easier and more stimulating for learners. Lessons incorporate PowerPoint slides, Lesson Videos, Experiment Videos, Siyavula text books, Simulations, Animations, and Assessments.
  • Mobile Science Laboratories – These are compact portable cases aligned to the CAPS Curriculum, bridging the gap between theoretical and practical application. Each compact laboratory is packaged in a single robust case with components recessed in specific receptacles, presented in layers for saving space and ensuring no missing components.
  • Assessment Clickers – Learner Response Systems are used to conduct quick and precise assessments of pupils’ subject matter knowledge. They are meaningful tools for educators that save time, help track the progress of individual learners and identify students requiring more focused attention. Clickers help enhance and enable the learning process. The Sangari Learner Response Clickers alleviate the administrative burden of marking assessments, reporting results, monitoring learner progress to ensure they fully grasp the subject matter, and shortens the turnaround times taken for facilitators to deliver assessments and reports. Teachers are empowered with more time available to focus their energies on raising actual throughput targets and other key performance indicators for overall teaching success.

Sustainable Corporate Social Investment Initiatives

Sangari Education has had much success in helping organisations secure more value out of their education spend to bring about greater impact. We take great care in identifying the donor company’s business objectives to ensure their social responsibility expenditure yields the most constructive outcomes soonest and that any proposed interventions are sustainable, performance driven and achieve a visible improvement in results. We often find that companies are keen on supporting institutions close to their local operations in order to find and attract the most promising talent into their businesses, thereby fully “closing the loop” in respect of return on investment.

Our approach is to reach agreement on the most worthy recipient/s, with cognisance being given to the likelihood of success of the project. We typically begin assignments with a baseline assessment exercise to provide a mechanism for planning, measuring and reporting on the intended project’s progress. We engage with all stakeholders, regional education directors, headmasters, teachers, learners and members of the local community, within the targeted institution or area. Following collation of the information gathered, Sangari usually recommends a solution that may include teacher development, technology, apparatuses and training. At the same time, a draft project scope that identifies the value to the community is presented to the funding organisation for approval. Further engagement with community leaders to explain the benefits of the project is often done to elicit widespread support.
