September Updates

During the registration process it was discovered that extra work needs to be done to make the buildings more fire safe. Due to this safety factor we are currently unable to operate as usual. We are busy working with our project partners to ensure the building is to the correct standard so that we can be fully registered and provide a safe learning environment for all of the children. Once this has been established we will be back to continue the work the centre provides. Without your donations the children whose parents are unemployed or cannot afford school fees would hugely struggle.

Daktari Outreach Program Update

The outreach team continues to have weekly presence at Ramatau and Maahlamele High Schools with the help of a recent vehicle rental agreement, paid for by donations.

In recent news, the Ramatau Eco Club kids have started their very own dance troupe as part of their fundraising drive. Check out a video of their performances at www.youtu.be/v9ow6uzwmmA

The Bushwise field guide school (www.bushwise.co.za) students have also played their part by organizing and delivering bespoke lessons on the region’s ecology and wildlife conservation to the eco club students.

On the final weekend of September, the Ramatau kids were able to attend the Hoedspruit Sustainable Living Festival and help the festival organizers run the stalls and spread their message.

One of the most promising eco club students, Grace, has had an interview organized at the Southern Cross School in Hoedspruit, an excellent private school that is considering her suitability for a full scholarship! We will bring you news of Grace’s progress and the pending WESSA Eco Schools status of Ramatau and Maahlamele.

Volcano Challenge 2013!

Our annual volcano challenge raises much needed funds for local teacher salaries, daily food and fruit and utensils for our schools in Guatemala. The Challenge in 2011 was a great success and we are already looking forward to replicating this in 2013. This time around, all of the money raised will again go towards teacher salaries, especially as we plan to expand our legalisation program into Santa María. The challenge will be just as tough as always, seeing staff and volunteers scale 4 impressive volcanoes in Guatemala, however as always, it is so rewarding so see the difference the funds raised can make.
