Programme Director, Students.

Our post-apartheid democracy has advanced the rights and status of women in South Africa. In school girls have equal access to boys and are performing at improved levels in many subjects. In higher education women are more than 50% of the student body, and while we all want to see more of them in scarce disciplines we are proud of their progress.

UBUNTU reminds everybody who was a Bantu education victim the 1976 unrest. Ubuntu is scary, quality education without this label Ubuntu should ultimately be implemented. The children of South Africa deserve to get educated and that's what their parents want according to Human Rights. Quality education will create jobs. A country without education will continue with conflicts and to avoid this it'll be very good to remove the cause.

I would like to make some enquiries with regard to the tarrifs being used when selling or pricing the learning material. A master copy consist of Training Manual, Facilitators Guide, Leaner's Guide and Powerpoint Presentation of the manual. How to charge when someone requests you produce material for him, example 25 learners, do I charge per learner per manual? Your prompt is highly appreciated.
