As the community’s schools could not accommodate all the children, a group of private individuals founded the Stormont Madubela Primary School in 1984 – in a shack. Nearly 20 years later the number of learners has grown from initially 50 to 400. The school is in the heart of Nyanga, a township on the Cape Flats. It consist of mostly shipping containers as classrooms which are too small for the number of children in each class. The sanitary facilities are a disgrace and need urgent uplifting. Currently only 4 toilets are working for 400 learners. Each school holidays the school is broken into and valuable furniture and other hardware stolen. Despite all these harsh circumstances the school is run by a very dedicated principal who is assisted by wonderful warm and motivated teachers.
We wish to make a valuabel contribution to improve the learning conditions for 400 learners and you can be part of it!
