The soccer world cup does not stop Daktari

It’s a very exciting time for all South Africans as we are the proud citizen welcoming the Soccer World cup. Flags, vuvuzela and euphoria are all over the country.

There is no rest for the Daktari Team and we will miss most of this animation as nothing will take us away from our mission and own goals.

We have now finished educating all the grade 8 children from Lepono School. We made contact with another school that was also very keen on sending their pupils to Daktari. We now welcome the students from Nareng school and carry on with Ramatau School. Our reputation in the village is growing and we receive numerous phone calls from other schools or even individual local people who would also like to send their children to Daktari. We will soon have to extend our project and need to secure our funds.

Thanks to your continued support which allows us to anticipate further development toward the education of our children and protection of the environment.
