On Wednesday, 13 October, the official handover of the Atlas Digibus, to the VUSA Rugby and Learning Academy and Bishops, took place in Langa.

Sue Anderson, Executive Director of the Atlas Foundation South Africa, cut the ribbon and handed the keys to Greg Brown. The bus is a 42 seater Scania bus, which was fully funded by the Atlas Foundation, in partnership with Cognizant, has been converted into a mobile classroom, with 40 laptops and 2 teaching stations.   

VUSA will launch its programmes in 2022 and will support the 5 primary schools in Langa with an intervention at Grade 4 level.  Langa pupils learn in their mother tongue until Grade 3 and then transition to learning in English at Grade 4 level.  This is where many children fall behind.   The programme has thus far been partially funded by Coronation Fund Managers but additional funding is required.  Please contact Nikki Matthews ([email protected]) if you wish to support or require additional information.
