The Institute of Training and Education for Capacity-building (ITEC) envisages a child-friendly South Africa where all children are able to access opportunities for optimal development.

 
We believe that children have the right to live in a safe, caring, and stimulating environment, and that they deserve the care and education that will equip them for tomorrow's world.

Celebrating Science at ITEC

Children from four primary schools were thrilled to demonstrate their Science Club projects at an expo at ITEC.  The projects designed and made by the children demonstrate various scientific concepts, from sound waves and percussion, to refraction, to chemical reactions.

Science Clubs encourage children to develop critical scientific thinking, and most importantly, to see the enjoyment and fun in scientific exploration.  Click through the pictures to see what the children got up to.

Mandela Day

ITEC staff teamed up with UNISA library staff for Mandela Day this year to help set up a small library for the children of Catch Projects, and read stories to the children who arrived in the afternoon.

Catch Projects does absolutely wonderful work in Mzamomhle, an informal settlement near Gonubie. Catch offers a range of recreational and educational clubs for the local children, as well as programmes for adults in the area.

We were really honoured to be able to help the children of Mzamomhle in memory of Madiba.

ITEC is 30 years old, and the focus is still on children

ITEC is 30 years old this year!  We are planning a series of events to celebrate over the year, culminating in our AGM in September.

We kicked off our birthday celebrations with a focus on the needs of young children, a theme that has run through ITEC’s work for the past 30 years. Over 70 guests attended a Jamboree at ITEC to share information about the essential services that children need and have a right to receive.

A range of government departments and civil society organisations shared information with the Early Childhood Development Practitioners who attended. And it was a great networking opportunity for practitioners and service providers!
