The CASPER Robotics and Reading Programme contributed to the advancement of Literacy at our school and in the community. The children could apply what they have read, especially the use of instructions to build Robots. This Reading Programme will certainly lead to better understanding and answering of questions in exams. The creation of our Library will further contribute to the Reading Programme.

Mr Witbooi, Principal, Hector Peterson Secondary School
Thank you very much for the opportunity to volunteer as a facilitator on your projects. I have indeed had a really great learning and life changing experience through the work that I have done with your organisation. I have had fun working with the children and I have learnt a lot from them too. I hope to see your organisation’s projects reaching more children and continuing to change lives in the future.
