Sam Nzima school is a tiny outpost of education in the long strip of rural communities that make up the Bushbuck Ridge Region. It is a poor school in terms of its financial assets yet hugely rich in the wealth of talented learners and sportsmen who attend school there, the teachers that educate as well as the parents who put time and effort into improving their situation.
Having just returned to school from the December holidays, everyone involved in the school is energized by what they were able to achieve whilst school was out. Gathering contributions and support from parents, the school has built two new classrooms. It is remarkable achievement considering the parents used their own capital and manpower to accomplish what was necessary before the school opened for 2010.
Spending long days laying the foundations and then building each classroom brick by brick the task was achieved. Furthermore the classrooms are both painted and furnished with blackboards, chairs and desks for the children to work from.
Londolozi and the Good Work Foundation are hugely inspired to see schools whom we support taking such an active initiative to better themselves and the future of their children. We look forward to keeping up our support to Sam Nzima and providing the necessary guidance for their purpose and development. Well Done!
