A pathway is mapped out for each individual student that joins the Marrma’ Rom Two Worlds Foundation. This pathway is based on literacy and numeracy levels, interests, jobs and opportunities back in their community and their drive to take up new challenges. The Foundation asks the students to ‘dream big’ and to set goals they never thought possible to achieve. We then plan the journey for them and break the goals down into stepping stones so they can see where they are, where they want to go, and how they are going to get there.
The Foundation works with St. Joseph’s College to:
- Test and assess the students’ academic levels
- Design and implement an individual learning plan to meet the needs of each student
- Establish a set of goals and a timeline so that each student can clearly identify with their pathway
The Marrma’ Rom Two Worlds Foundation has now moved beyond Secondary School with its first Graduate in 2012 and is looking forward to creating networks with Tertiary and Higher Educational Institutions. The Foundation is also exploring opportunities for these young men to take on positions of full time and part time work after graduation in order to achieve their goals.
