a bridging education project for refugee and migrant children in south africa
What we achieved
Randry, from Burundi, was one the first Three2Six learners and remained with the project for four years. He received a scholarship which allowed him to enrol at Sacred Heart College, a Three2Six host school. He matriculated from the College in 2018. Two years later, he came back to the project and he acted as campus volunteer for a year. As part of it, he was running the alumni days that the Marist Youth movement organises every month for the Three2Six past learners.
He is now an intern teacher at the project.
‘[My experience at Three2Six] was very remarkable, I began my first grade in the Three2Six project and they welcomed me, they were very welcoming, they had remarkable things to teach us […] And they treated us very well.
And they gave us lunch in the afternoon […] And they took care of us, they gave us uniforms, they made sure that we learned what we had to learn. They gave us remarkable education as refugees because we refugees we are not accepted by government schools, we are not recognised. Three2Six took us in and they recognised us as children that were in need of education. Three2Six has opened doors for me.’
