Andiccio24 are proud sponsors of the S. Teresa’s Ububele project, which is a programme whereby teachers and students give back to society by sharing their knowledge and wisdom with girls from a less resourced school.

 

As a Mercy School our core values include Global Responsibility, Compassion and Collaboration which we try to embrace on a daily basis. When the Rosies Beyond Borders Outreach Programme was launched a few years ago it aimed to unite the community service activities of all Rosies under one umbrella with these core values in mind.

 

With this in mind, St Teresa’s founded Ububele in 2015, a Saturday School for girls from a less resourced school. What better way to become involved in meeting the needs of South Africa than by paying forward the wonderful educational knowledge and opportunities that we all enjoy at St Teresa’s.  Ububele means Mercy and Kindness in Zulu and is a fitting tribute to our founders, the Sisters of Mercy.

As Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy said...

“ No work of charity can be more productive to society… than the careful instruction of women.”.

 

Based on the principle of “pay it forward”, our learners and staff pass on their knowledge in English, Maths, and Computers to 22 Grade 6/7 girls and undertake a reading and development course with 12 Grade 2’s and 12 Grade 3s from a less resourced performing government primary school. Lifeskills such as swimming, netball, beading, knitting, self defence, public speaking, yoga, crafts etc are taught and enjoyed by the girls. By acting as teaching assistants, sports coaches and life skills facilitators at Ububele, St Teresa’s learners and staff are helping educate many young girls with the aim of giving these young girls the opportunity to be accepted into good government high schools. By supporting Ububele, they are directly involved in the education of women in society.
