LOWER MOLWENI-SOUTH AFRICA SOA PROJECTS
LAMULA PRIMARY SCHOOL ALTERATIONS UPDATE
Soul of Africa is focusing it's efforts on the Lower Molweni Valley in Kwa,Zulu Natal, South Africa. Lamula Primary School is one of the two primary schools in the area that has benefited from Soul Of Africa donations so far for 2013.
Lamula Promary School was build in 1994 and the current enrollment is 235 pupils from grade R to grade 7. Lamula Headmaster, Mr Khumalo approached Soul Of Africa in 2012, to help with the ablution problems they were experiencing. The ablution blocks were on the boundary fence of the school property and were pit ablutions i.e. no running water, impossible to clean and therefore a complete health hazard.
The Lamula Primary School ablutions / alterations, were on our Soul Of Africa 'Wish List' and we are very proud to say that we have been able to make the alterations and more for the little primary school! This is what we have achieved so far.
Soul Of Africa have added a separate ablution block onto the existing Grade R classroom, which houses the pre-school toilets. We have added a small separate boys and girls toilet with small sized toilets for the under 6-year-olds. Once the toilets are complete a fence will be erected to separate the classroom, ablution block and jungle gym area from the main primary school.
The primary school toilet block is almost complete. There is a girls block, a boys block and a separate teachers toilet in between these two.
For the second time in a six-month-period, the electric cabling that runs overhead has been stolen. Soul Of Africa has replaced the cable. We have instructed the electrician to place the schools entire cabling system underground to prevent the theft.
