There’s been a lot of bad news this week, so we thought we’d share some very special news to help shed some light. One of our highly valued overseas guests has made an incredibly generous donation of $50,000 to our Early Learning Centre in Franschhoek.
This is the centre’s second year in operation and they have 64 children from 3 and 4 year olds to the integrated Grade R class of 5 year olds, in which both Xhosa and Afrikaans coloured children are educated together. Le Quartier Français, Margot Janse and the kitchen team provide balanced daily meals to the underprivileged learners.
Director of Education, Jacquie Spiers of The Kusasa Project says: “The donation will go a long way to resourcing our new Grade 1 class of 2014 and to providing for a highly skilled teacher for this group. It will help to keep us sustainable and thereby ensure that we never fail these vulnerable children, who are the future of this beautiful but benighted land.”
So a HUGE & HAPPY THANK YOU, to our very kind anonymous benefactor.
