We have linked up with 4 schools in Sanyati, 3 Primary Schools and 1 Secondary School. Wozhele Primary School, St Charles Primary School, Sanyati Baptist Primary School and St Charles Secondary School. Although there are many other schools in the area, these are the nearest schools to where our centre will be (in ward 11) and they have many needs.
All the schools have similarities but at the same time they are also very different. All the schools prioritise the need for a reliable water source. All have wells but they often dry up, particularly during the drier months, July to October. Often children do not have water to drink or to wash their hands with. Along with this, a reliable electricity supply is also much needed. The lack of water & electricity prevents or hinders the schools from running projects that could help the schools and the children i.e. vegetable gardening and poultry.
The 3 primary schools also have an ECD (Early Childhood Development) block (Reception
Class, which is now mandatory). They are all overcrowded, usually a class is split in two, one group being taught inside while the other group are outside playing or learning under a tree, then they swap.
Text books, classroom furniture, building repairs, computers & sporting equipment are all on their needs list.
We are looking for individuals, businesses, churches, funding organisations & groups to support our schools. With your help in donating to our School Support Project Fund, we aim to work with the schools to help them improve their circumstances and to enable them to put in place their own improvement program.
Wozhele Primary School Chicken Broiler Project. We have donated 50 chicks and feed so that the school can start a chicken broiler project. This is a 6 week cycle, reinvesting the money from sales to buy the next 50 chicks and using the profits from selling for specific aims. This will help raise much needed revenue for the school.
St. Charles Primary School a-MAIZE-ing Acres Project. We are planning to plant 2 acres of maize on the school grounds to help raise funds for two school projects – water tank and computers. We will update further details as the project gets underway.
