There is no doubt that South Africa needs to educate its children, says Mr. TD Mathiane, Founder of TCSI.
Some people don't understand how much difference a good education makes. It opens your eyes to a wider world. It helps you understand things you never understood before. It gives you opportunities for a better life that you would never have had without the education.
The right to a basic education is guaranteed in the Constitution of the Republic of South African [section 29(1)] since 1996. The South African Schools Act (1996) [section 3(1)] made it compulsory for all children to attend school from the first school day of the year in which they reach the age of 7 years until the last school day of the year in which they reach the age of 15 or the end of Grade 9.
This framework legislation embodies the South African government’s commitment to the access goal in the ‘Education for All’ Dakar 2000 Declaration.

We as Christians and believers of the Gospel request that this movie be banned for release in cinemas throughout our Country.
The content of the Da Vinci code is BLASPHEMOUS and extremely insensitive to the Church and to all who love the Lord Jesus.
Our God is depicted as a LIAR and a man who was married, which goes against our belief and Bibical understanding, not to mention the countless false "fictional" accusations made by both the Book and the movie.
This would NEVER be tolerated by our society, should "ALLAH" or "BUDDAH" be depicted in this way.
This movie may be "fictional" in nature, but that grants the director NO
right to make a public spectacle of the Jesus that we LOVE and WORSHIP.
