Limpopo, Vhembe District – Makhado

The Vhembe District CentreThe Vhembe District Centre.The Vhembe District Centre lies 40 kilometres from the town of Louis Trichardt in the Makhado District Municipality of Limpopo. Operating in the premises of the Makhado Continuous Professional Education Centre, the facility will serve secondary schools in the Nzhelele East and West circuits.

Initially the centre will service 20 schools in the region, and then cascade to additional schools. Some of the schools are in deep rural areas, working in communities characterised by widespread poverty and unemployment.

Education in these conditions is difficult, particularly in the crucial subjects of Maths, Science and Technology. The centre offers the potential for bridging the digital divide and improving the quality of education in these under-resourced regions. It will also offer ICT training to the broader community.

The Makhado Continuous Professional Development Centre, where the Vhembe District Centre will be housed, is managed by Dr Happy Ramakhanya, a Chief Education Specialist. The ICT resource centre itself will be managed by Mr Samuel Masuluke, a Deputy Chief Education Specialist. He will be assisted by Mrs Mugivhi Tsakani Gladys and Mr Netsianda Absalom, both of whom have recently completed a three-year full-time ICT course at the Tshwane University of Technology.
