Schools have 30 to 50 children per class and educare centres have between 5 and 50 children. Resources are stretched and teachers cannot provide attention to every student. Volunteers provide much needed classroom assistance. Volunteers assist in daily running of classes and give one-on-one attention to children in need. Volunteers are supervised by a teacher or coordinator, but will also have the opportunity to give lessons.
We currently support or run the following schools and educare centers:
Zusakhe: The school was founded and run by Patricia (Mama). This beautiful school is made of prefabricated classrooms, a kitchen to provide hot meals for the children each day. The school also boasts a wonderful enclosed area in the middle of the classrooms, completely protected from the harsh African sun and cold winters.
Honeybees: Honeybees Educare is made up of two main buildings, one of which is the home to Principles Sharon and Jerome. The main building is divided into two classrooms with 2 additional classrooms across the road. The outside play area is limited to about 3m x 6m fenced off from the road, but the school often makes use of a nearby playground.
Vissershok Primary School: This is a permanent brick primary school catering to children in the local farming communities as well as the local farming communities as well as the local township and local settlements around the area. In addition to the normal classes for each grade, there is also a computer lab, a library, decent sized grass field and netball court for the kids to play on.
Little Angels Educare: A small school of roughly 25 children aged between 1 year and 7 years. The school is made up of a small room divided into two to seperate the different age groups. Often the school makes use of the nearby playground to provide the children with some much needed excersise. The school recently received a donation enabling them to perform upgrades to the class and make it more comfortable for everyone working in the school.
Good Hope Educare: Good Hope has approximately 50 children aged between 1 and 7 years. The main building is divided into 3 classrooms and a kitchen to prepare food for the children. The outdoor play area is limited but is closed off from the road. The school recently received a full facelift - sponsored largely by two volunteers.
Footsteps: Footsteps Educare has 80 students aged between 1 years and 7 years of age. The school building is made up of 2 prefabricated classrooms with 2 additional classrooms inside the main house.
