Registering matrics on the Central Application Office register.

Every year, thousands of matriculants must register on the Central Application Office website. This is necessary to access a place at tertiary institutions.

For most, this is a simple exercise. But for rural school children, who have no easy access to a computer and the internet. Additionally, most rural parents aren’t able to assist them. It is another hurdle in the race.

Every August, I Learn to Live travels to six schools in our area to give learners an opportunity to register. Armed with laptops, a data router, printer and scanner, the team works with each learner to create an email address, fill out the forms, and register online.

While not every child will secure a place at a tertiary institution, they have at least been given the opportunity to try.
