The Rachel's Angels mentorship programme began in 2007 in association with Stellenbosch University. The programme is about improving the academic abilities of grade 11 and Grade 12 learners and improving their life skills. Ultimately Rachel's Angels is about improving excellence in high school education in the Western Cape.
The Rachel's Angels empowerment project aims to contribute towards the building of excellence in high school education in the Western Cape. The programme includes regular campus visits, attending lectures and exposure to the world of business in the form of an entrepreneurial day, where learners are required to develop business plans and run a small business. Through this process – experiential learning, mentoring by peers, exposure to academic life and the realities of the business world – students and learners are taught skills that will adequately equip them to play a meaningful role in society.
The Media24 Rachel's Angels Empowerment Trust is recognised by stakeholders as an entity that makes a measurable contribution to excellence in secondary school education in the Western Cape.
Through an effective mentorship programme for Grade 11 and 12 learners, we contribute to the holistic development of the participating learners and students. Our programme enables Grade 12 learners to deal effectively with post-matric challenges. It enables them to make a constructive contribution to the South African economy and society at large.
