A Discussion of a Unique Collaboration Model between Schools
de Klerk, Werner; Nienaber, Alida W.
Online Submission, Psychology Research v1 n3 p170-181 Sep 2011
The schools located in many township and rural areas of South Africa struggle to provide a high standard of education, because many of the inhabitants of these areas are very poor and there is, thus, a lack of the funding required for the necessary educational equipment. The Afri Twin project, started by Jayne Martin, addresses this problem. The project is collaboration among a British school, a South African town/city school and a school from a rural community in South Africa. The aims of the research project were to determine the benefits of the Afri Twin project and to investigate a unique interaction among a British school, a South African Model C School and a rural school. Data were collected through focus group interviews, in-depth interviews and questionnaires. Data analysis led to the emergence of four major themes with categories and subcategories. The conclusion underlined the cultural tolerance that is established through the Afri Twin project as well as the importance of financial support for promoting an improved learning environment.
