Challenge

The reality is farm schools are often in remote and underdeveloped areas, affected with various factors, such as limited opportunities, resources and underdeveloped infrastructure, negatively influencing the delivery of quality education and basic learning material, compared to our more affluent communities. Challenges and long-term solutions are being addressed by a government steering committee, however this is a lengthy process. In the interim 500 kids educational rights are at risk.

Solution

Healing Hands Foundation, will provide School uniforms, desks, chairs and stationery, assisting the school with basic required material to teach 500 impoverished kids. Repairs such as broken toilets, classroom ceilings, windows, doors and walkways will be performed. Enclosing the school with a fence and security gate will assist by keeping kids safe. A warm nutritional cup of soup will be provided from the vegetable garden, to overcome hunger and for some, this may be the only meal of the day.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims at giving 500 kids a fair opportunity to learn, in a safe, conducive environment, with the required resources. Focusing on quality education in rural areas, has long-term benefits, communities gain confidence, knowledge and expertise, thus increasing productivity, skilled rural labour force, employment and income opportunities. Ultimately building stronger successful communities, with empowered leaders to overcome inequalities and problem solve.
