YouCanDoMaths has joined forces with Izibalo NPC to bring affordable private extra Mathematics lessons to rural and township learners in the Eastern Cape. The lessons take place in sponsor branded container classrooms called Maths Pods. These are located inside a school ground to allow easy access and a secure environment for up to 100 learners to learn. Each Maths Pod contains the necessary furniture, laptops, internet and security to cater for a maximum of 24 learners per hour. The Pods are solar powered and include ablution facilities.

The mission of Izibalo is to boost the number of learners taking pure mathematics in grades 10, 11 and 12. This will allow the learners to obtain a more meaningful grade 12 certificate thereby opening many more career paths in the future.

In addition to the above, Izibalo NPC will be training unemployed youth between the ages of 25 and 35 years to be Maths tutors. These candidates will need a minimum grade 12 Maths pass and will ultimately be enrolled at an institution of higher learning to study a Maths education course.

The plan is to roll out 3 Maths Pods during 2024 and 10 by 2026.
