The KaziBantu Project stems from the DASH Project (Disease, Activity and Schoolchildren’s Health), a joint venture between Basel University in Switzerland, the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, and Nelson Mandela University, and funded by the Swiss/South Africa joint research program.
The KaziBantu Project aims to upscale the DASH project to benefit more schools in South Africa and in other countries in Africa. A children’s toolkit, with resources (teaching material, lesson plans) for primary schools (Grades 1 to 7) in relation to Physical Education, Health and Hygiene and Nutrition is being developed.
Rooftop was approached to assist the KaziBantu Team to develop the look and feel of the above-mentioned toolkits. Our approach was broken up into two phases:
Phase 1: Develop a look/feel and Corporate Identity.
This included refining the existing KaziBantu logo, developing a mascot for the program, as well as developing the overall look and feel of the learning modules.
Phase 2: Roll Out
Upon successful development and approval of the overall look and feel of the toolkit, Rooftop used the corporate identity and design to develop 21 modules for the KaziBantu program. These modules covered seven school grades with three content pillars per grade.
The project is currently being rolled out across schools in South Africa.
