MIET AFRICA’s regional programme, FutureLife-Now! is an intervention designed to contribute to the reduction of new HIV infections and the increase in ART adherence among young people in the SADC Region. Its goal is to promote greater self-confidence and hope for the future among young people in the SADC region by advancing the region’s priority goals and commitments – especially those related to education, health, gender equality and climate change. The programme requires the services of an established and suitably experienced video production company to shoot short video clips on key programme themes in two Southern African countries. Tender closing date is 4 April 2022. For more information and to submit, click here.

REPORT | Gains and Losses for Care and Support in a COVID-19 Era: Findings of a Rapid Evaluation of CSTL in South African Schools

REPORT | Gains and Losses for Care and Support in a COVID-19 Era: Findings of a Rapid Evaluation of CSTL in South African Schools

Since its adoption by SADC Ministers of Education in 2008, the Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) Framework has been instituted within the South African Department of Basic Education as a guide for mainstreaming care and support. An evaluation of CSTL was planned for 2019/2020, but with the advent of the coronavirus in early 2020, this was not possible. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic and related government lockdowns have resulted in numerous consequences for the education sector and the children it serves. It was thus determined necessary to conduct a rapid evaluation of CSTL implementation in schools, to determine how schools have coped during the COVID-19 period. The findings of the rapid evaluation were presented at the November 2021 CSTL conference, as a contribution to discussions around strengthening the system for effective delivery of school-based care and support services and preparing the system and schools for future disruptions or emergencies.

Help Rebuild Family Home & Lives

Help Rebuild Family Home & Lives

The family home of a beloved and hardworking MIET AFRICAN burnt down on New Years’ Day, 1 January 2022, resulting in devastation for the family. The accidental fire started during a time when there had been no electricity in the area for two days, so cell batteries were flat.

When the emergency services were finally reached, they were battling other fires and unfortunately took a while to arrive – and then ran short of water.

Heroic neighbours rescued the family members stuck inside the house and got them out of the burning building to safety. Thankfully nobody was hurt.

However, the fire quickly engulfed the house destroying it completely, together with all their possessions, leaving them with nothing.

Please help us to rebuild their home and lives!

Even the smallest contribution will be greatly appreciated.
