The Project

Children attending the school come from as far afield as Delft and Langa (suburbs of Cape Town). Some are collected in a kombi owned by the organization.

The new building has provided the following:

  • A Safe building suitable for the education and care of the children.
  • Separating children into different age and capability categories.
  • Has erected a suitable playground which will assist with "fine motor and gross motor" skills development.
  • A fully equipped kitchen has facilitated with cooking of nutritious meals.
  • Bathroom facilities and sick room facilities suitable for children.

The building project was managed by architects and quantity surveyors who have undertaken successful similar projects in the past on the Cape Flats. The local community was employed on the building site thereby encouraging skills development and community ownership.

The Garden Project

A garden project on the site grows vegetables and fruit and further assists with their education as well as supplementing the feeding scheme.
