The Nine Tenths programme mentors Grade 10 to 12 high school learners in Makhanda, helping to support them through high school and prepare them for university entrance. Guided by Rhodes University student volunteers, the aim of the mentoring programme is to help learners attain the academic results they need to enable them to successfully apply for tertiary study at Rhodes University. Having seen the Nine Tenths programme as a new opportunity to help alleviate the education crisis in the Eastern Cape, the Trust formally began its partnership with the initiative in 2020. Since the inception of the programme, the number of learners from disadvantaged schools being accepted at tertiary institutions has increased from 10 in 2011 to approximately 100 in 2021. What a statistic like this proves is just how significantly a programme like Nine Tenths can help to transform the education sector, addressing the challenges of the past while helping learners to make a meaningful, lasting contribution to our society.
