April 2021 - South Africa

Nolali Education Centre

This report from Debby Potgieter of NEC says it all:

“We are really excited about the assistance the international Vedic Math team is offering our project.

Our relationship began by chance when we met Marianne Fletcher over the December holidays here in the Transkei. Marianne explained the concept of Vedic Maths, a technique which teaches mathematics using sutras which can be applied to maths problems, making it simpler to grasp. Students in our rural village miss the fundamentals such as the value of numbers as well as they don’t know their times tables and therefore Maths becomes a daunting challenge from a young age for many. We were keen to put Marianne’s ideas into action and she was keen to support our project. A couple of zoom meetings later, we met Marianne’s international colleagues who were all keen to support us and our new journey towards making Maths more comprehensible for these children has begun.

The international team have now designed worksheets, created video tutorials and tailor-made activities for us to implement at our education centre after school and we are thrilled with their input. We are fortunate to have Justin, our Maths volunteer, to lead the lessons, although today, the class was so big it was hands on for everyone.”

We have an exciting journey ahead embracing Maths, Maths and more Maths. Thank you, Marianne, Swati, and your team.

We hope to continue the programme this year.

How can you help?

We are in need of additional financial support to fund this year’s 5th International Vedic Mathematics Conference. Unfortunately, post pandemic due to the increased request for grants Tata Trusts are no longer able to sponsor us this year.  Although we have a secured some grant, we need an additional amount a total of 6 Lakh INR to pay for meals, resources, printing, advertising, travel, etc. If 300 people each donate $30, we will be able to run this wonderful event smoothly. The IAVM is a registered charity staffed entirely by volunteers.

Every donation, however small or large, will be very gratefully received and put to good use. If you support the promotion of Vedic Mathematics, its use in education and the latest research and development then please consider our sincere request.

Any sponsorship received will be publicly acknowledged and sponsors will receive a transparent account of funds. We are hoping to raise enough funds by the end of June.

Please find below the payment details for your donations.
