Ithembalihle Pre-School Project

In February of this year (2013) it was agreed by the board of both GAGA and SOA to build a new classroom building for the school, and in October 7 volunteers from the UK will join a local building team to make that become a reality.

Ithembalihle Pre-School Project

As you will all know, there has been a pre-school at Ithembalihle for a while now, and due to its success it has grown from a few children to over 30 children in regular attendance. Until now the school has been housed in a room which was for the resident children of Ithembalihle to do their homework. Needs must and the school now requires a purpose-built classroom with adequate space and facilities for the children to learn.

We have been supporting Ithemablihle with our partners ‘Spirit of Africa’ and this relationship has now extended to the pre-school. In February of this year it was agreed by the board of both GAGA and SOA to build a new classroom building for the school, and in October 7 volunteers from the UK will join a local building team to make that become a reality. The new classroom is costing £8000, which covers the build and some equipment. So far we have reached 90% of the funding needed and have every confidence we will meet our target.

The building team of volunteers from the UK will be made up of GAGA and SOA volunteers from many walks of life. They are paying for their visit and are using their holiday to make this project happen. In the spirit of our work we will be joined by a local building team and we will be working together to complete the classroom.
