Pilot Testing of KaziKidz

'Children are our future' - this is a statement often heard in political speeches. But what does this future look like, especially for children living in neglected areas of the world? How can we create a future for them which consists of hope, health, joy, and wellbeing.

KaziKidz Teaching Material

In South Africa schools have an important role to play in the health and well-being of children, especially those from our disadvantaged communities. Our research from The DASH (Disease Activity and Schoolchildren's Health) Study has highlighted health-related problems among schoolchildren, and we have worked towards finding practical solutions. We, the KaziBantu Team have devised a fun and informative toolkit which is a handy resource for teachers and specialists, in line with the South African Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS).
