Project Description

Maleka Raphadu is a true AEC shining star and epitomises our values of excellence and giving back. She has consistently been top of her grade throughout her high school career at SSB Vuleka, recently winning their Dux Award for her superior achievements. Maleka initiated study and support groups for fellow learners who were taking Advanced Programme (AP) Maths and offered assistance where she could to those struggling with Maths, Science or English. Next year, when she enrols at Wits to study Actuarial Science, she will be the first person in her family to attend university. Her dream is to write a book entitled: “Did you do Maths today?” These achievements come from a child who only achieved 19% in Maths at her primary school in Alexandra but, with the help and guidance of the AEC, now regularly scores distinctions.
