The Anna Foundation was started in 2005 to provide a safe and constructive place for rural children living on farms to be after the school gates close. Their professionally designed “3 R’s Programme: Reading, Running and Right-ing” is implemented in the afternoons for learners from Grade R to 12 and involves education, sports and life skills programmes which are implemented through drama. Children participate in all three aspects of the programme.
Reading: In the ‘Reading’ hour, each child receives a grade-specific worksheet which includes literacy and numeracy activities. Activities in the worksheets are central to the life skills theme for the month. Homework support is offered and remedial assistance is given to those children with learning barriers, many of whom have various degrees of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
Running: Sports lessons are aimed at increasing fitness levels, improving motor skills, developing team work and introducing the children to new types of sports.
Right-ing: Life skills lessons are taught through drama and drama games. The focus of this programme is to instil values and deal with social issues by developing communication skills, problem solving skills, creativity and imagination as well as learning to have empathy for others. Drama helps children to develop confidence and positive self-esteem.
