"Through a long and painful process, I've learned that happiness is an inside job - not based on anything or anyone in the outer material world. I've become a different and better person - not perfect, but still a work in progress"

Albinism, Education, Events…
“I think every person has their own identity and beauty. Everyone being different is what is really beautiful. If we were all the same, it would be boring”
In this week’s NGO Pulse, we look at International Albinism Awareness Day observed annually on June 13th, we also look at an article on the culture of learning and teaching in South African schools.
People with albinism face multiple forms of discrimination worldwide. Albinism is still profoundly misunderstood, socially and medically. The physical appearance of persons with albinism is often the object of erroneous beliefs and myths influenced by superstition, which foster their marginalisation and social exclusion. This leads to various forms of stigma and discrimination.

Goodman Chauke takes a closer look at the inequality in South Africa’s education system and the potential threat it could have in hampering the country’s progress in addressing the socio-economic hardships faced by its citizens. Chauke is of the view that our education system is widely divided along economic lines in which the rich have access to quality education while the poor are condemned to a poor system with less qualified teachers and lack of resources. He says in order to assist schools to achieve academic excellence, the country should consider the role that partnerships could play in educational projects, community participation and leadership, and educational content delivery mechanisms. In addition, he believes that corporate social investment sponsored projects should involve partnerships with like-minded stakeholders at community level, in order to contribute to improving the quality of education.
