In partnership with Mindset, an educational technology and media NGO, BRM’s MAP provides a supplementary education platform that delivers academic support to 400 senior high school learners in Tshwane’s region seven municipality. Using technology and qualified facilitators, learners will receive free, engaging and high-quality extra lessons in key subjects once a week.
“MAP is one of the many ways in which BRM continually strives to make a difference to the lives of the number of historically disadvantaged learners,” said Ndavhe Mareda, CEO of Black Royalty Minerals. He added that BRM focuses on upliftment and enablement in the communities surrounding its colliery and from the areas where its sources labour and suppliers, and places great importance on activities and initiatives which will show tangible benefits.
“We are proud of how the community has embraced MAP and look forward to helping the students achieve their full potential. We will continue to support the community and expand on similar programmes,” concluded Mareda.
