Learn for Life - change through education

Summary

Flight Centre Foundation plans to provide quality education to 436 learners aged between 5 and 13 in a school through building a feeding scheme kitchen, a library, sports fields and refurbishing existing classrooms. These children come from the poorest sections of society with high unemployment. An added benefit will be job creation in the area through employing local people for the building work.

Challenge

Qhobosheane is a non-fee paying school with 126 of the 436 children being classed as orphaned or vulnerable. As a result many of the children are living in food poverty. The school is also severely underfunded with few facilities. Main areas of concern are no feeding kitchen, no library which impacts on literacy (78% of children aged 11 cannot read with meaning), and no sports fields. Many classrooms are in need of refurbishment and are potential health hazards.

Solution

By refurbishing the classrooms, building a feeding scheme kitchen, planting a vegetable garden to support the kitchen, building and equipping a library, and building sports fields, the children will have all the opportunities and advantages that other school going children enjoy.

Long-Term Impact

The project will ensure that these children have a quality education in a healthy environment, that food poverty is eradicated, and give them a foundation on which to build future success. This is a sustainable project that will affect many generations and will contribute to the upliftment of a whole community.
