Many children fall through the gaps in South Africa’s education system. Only half of learners in Grade 1 make it to Grade 12, and many fall short of exam requirements. The EU has been supporting South Africa’s Departments of Basic Education and Higher Education and Training since 2004 to move towards inclusive education for all, with specific measures to support learners with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds. Capacity4dev hears about a programme providing books for every child; the rise of full-service schools; and improving vocational education.

"One of the most effective ways to reduce poverty is to encourage
entrepreneurship." (World Bank Report) SIMAMA RANTA loosely translates into
Strengthening the South African economy through youth entrepreneurship. The
approach of the event is to focus South African secondary school's efforts on
the delivery of in-school entrepreneurship education based upon 11 principles
of good practice, throughout the year. The purpose of the exercise is to
enable learners to become job creators rather than job seekers through
entrepreneurship. Three schools from each of 9 provinces are being selected
as models of good practice together with a national winner. Simama Ranta
started in 2010 and is now in its 8th year.

SAVE THE DATE: Young Voices for Inclusive Governance: Implications for the
post-2015 framework. 
NOVEMBER 27, 09:30-11:00, European Development Days

Children and youth make up half the world’s population, yet too often their
opinions on the issues which affect them are ignored.

If the post-2015 framework is to promote truly inclusive and sustainable,
young people’s participation and influence in the decisions which affect
their lives is essential.
Join the conversation *led by young people themselves* at this year’s
European Development Days, taking place on 27 November, 09.30-11.00 at Tour &
Taxis, Brussels. Hear what they have to say on the cr*itical issues of child
and youth participation and governance for the successor framework to the
Millennium Development Goals.*
