Weʼve raised £130 to help build new classrooms for Iphutheng Primary school in Alexandra, Johannesburg.
- Alexandra, Gauteng, South Africa
- Funded on Sunday, 27th November 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
'These children live in shacks and then they have to come to school in a 'shack' .. how can they learn that things can be better?' These were the words spoken by the inspirational headmaster , Mike , as we stood on the first floor of the only classroom building over looking the town of Alexandra. As far as the eye could see, every square inch of land was taken up by ' houses' . And it was these words that have inspired us to help make a difference in this community . We have had the priviledge of helping local individuals during our stay but we know the value of building and inspiring a community, and we know that you as our friends will feel the same way too.
Below is an extract from Iphuteng Primary's website which explains their situation and needs ..
'This year we have to provide quality education to 1475 learners accommodated in 22 mortar and bricks classrooms and 8 temporary structures. We are a no fee paying school and we are depending on the ring fenced annual grant from the Government. The amounts received are often not sufficient to purchase the larger items required. We therefore rely on the generosity of the active citizens of the universe to assist us.
Compose School song and prayer
Blinds for the multipurpose shelter
Venue and transport for the strategic planning meeting
Interactive intercom system
3 Data Projectors
Board room table and 8 chairs
School Bus or school bakkie
Nine Additional classrooms
6 Additional toilets for temporary structures
Social worker/ therapist to assist with referral of learners with barriers '
We would love to achieve all the things on this wish list but if we only manage to raise money for one of them then we have achieved more than we ever hoped we could.
If you are able to help with any of the local requests such as venues etc. please feel free to visit their website or contact me for more details.
Thank you xx
