Jabulani Primary School
Total donations: $123,000 | Partnership: Since 2013
Situated in a very poor community, half the school consists of orphaned and vulnerable children.
150 students were learning in 3 overcrowded classrooms with many classes taking place outdoors under trees. Our first project however was to ensure that the students had access to adequate toilet facilities and then went on to build 5 additional classrooms and supply all the rooms with desk and chairs. We also of course ensured that each class had new books and all the supplies needed to be successful.
In honor of Arbor Day, fruit and indigenous trees were planted to increase environmental awareness as various “greening” activities were undertaken by the schools to promote a healthier ecosystem for the people through the rehabilitation and re-greening of the environment.
Fruit yields from the successful nurturing of the citrus trees provided will supplement the student’s diets with much needed Vitamin C as well as assist by providing fruit for sale which can assist with income for the school.
