Grassroots 20 Years On. Annual Report 1992.
Grassroots Educare Trust, Gatesville (South Africa).
This annual report discusses the work of the Grassroots Educare Trust to provide economic and technical assistance to 177 preschool communities throughout Western Cape Province in South Africa, with a heavy emphasis on those in poor, black-populated areas. After messages from the chairman of the board of trustees and the director, the report is divided into eight main sections. Section 1 examines the provision of educare (preschools) in urban areas, outlining the administration, infrastructure, education, health care, and nutrition standards in various urban preschools. Section 2 provides similar information on educare in rural areas. Section 3 discusses home-based educare programs under way and in the planning stages. Section 4 reviews training programs conducted in 1991 and 1992 in the areas of primary health, first aid, organization, and finances. Section 5 highlights some of the resources that the trust has at its disposal, including its resource center, Adventure Bus program, publications and displays, and preschool shop. Section 6 discusses the current status of educare throughout South Africa, while section 7 examines the differences in the state's subsidies for the education and care of white, colored, and black children under apartheid. Section 8 reports on the internal workings of the Grassroots organization, including administration, personnel, fundraising, and finances. Numerous black and white photographs illustrate the text.
