HOW WE DO THINGS
Poverty can cause children permanent damage, both physically and mentally due to hunger, malnutrition, ill-health, lack in education and essentials, can stunt their growth, cause them to fall behind in school.
Poverty also affects their roles within their families, communities, and society as a whole. Poverty denies children their human rights, and it leads to a vicious cycle of deprivation, which is difficult to break without proper support or assistance.

SMART brain training is a fun learning tool designed to help kids of all ages learn better and faster. It teaches a range of basic, but crucial relational skills and helps new information make more sense, which enable children to think more clearly.
Decades of research has shown that it is our relational skills that help us to understand the relationships between things, such as words and objects in the world around us. For e.g. any two things can be the same as each other, different, or opposite to each other.
Wisdom Pond is supported by the Smart Brain Institute of SA to help children with learning difficulties by virtue of hardship to cope with life's challenges.
