Our current projects
The Trust focuses on a few key activities at a time. At the moment our key activities are:
A refurbished library for Zakhele Primary School
Zakhele Primary School was the first school in Mamelodi to be supported by the Trust. Over the years, many resources have been provided including books, learning materials and computers as well as a well-equipped room for teaching science. The room originally used as a library was little more than a bookstore which was not used effectively by the pupils. The Trust has funded the refurbishment of the building, provided new purpose built furniture and funded the purchase of books. BESA, the British Educational Suppliers Association, and SchoolAid have both made significant contributions to this project. In addition, several universities in the USA have provided books for the library. The school is being assisted by the librarian at the new Meeste A Bophelo Primary School library and is very enthusiastic about improving the teaching of reading and developing pupils’ learning skills though effective use of the library. Students from the University of Pretoria work with pupils every week in the library hearing them read and helping them to enjoy books.
