TEEEP with Smart Foundation

The Northern IIinois University (NIU) in partnership with South Africa YMCA as the implementing organization created “The Economic Entrepreneurial Education Program (TEEEP)” that teaches primary school children basics of economics and entrepreneurship. It is a sequential curriculum with 3 UNITS for :

  • children in the age group of 10-13 years old (Grade 5-7) running for 3 years. The Smart Foundation is the Ambassador for this program and runs it for its beneficiaries.

TEEEP is a fun and creative way to teach children economics and entrepreneurial concepts through fun techniques that ensures they make better economic decisions in their lives. It is essential to teach these important concepts and skills to children from an early age so that they recognize that the decisions they make today have an impact on their future well-being. Choices they make about stayingin school, about out-of-school activities and behaviors, the habits they develop in using money –all of these impact the life opportunities they will find in the future.

Soup and Porridge Day

Once a month, our beneficiaries are provided with a Holanathi meal pack to supplement their diet. Further to this, they are taught about the nutritional value of the food packs and how to incorporate it into their daily diet. Vegetable seedlings, compost and planting guides are included in the meal pack and beneficiaries are encouraged to exercise responsibility, independence and sustainability.


Mentoring with Gurus

Focuses on the development of the beneficiary through career guidance, advise and emotional development. We have identified various experts who share knowledge, skills, information, provide guidance and perspective with our beneficiaries. Our main aim for this project is to dare our beneficiaries to dream!
