About 8 years ago, my little girl had to go to school for the first time.
A daunting experience for every parent I am sure. But for this mommy it was an impossible task. She was born at 25 weeks weighing only 500 grams. A very special little girl. The road that we had to walk with her is something that you can never explain to anyone. The fear, the heart ache and then when we completed each battle successfully – the amazing gratitude and jubilation. In this process we had taken our little angel to 5 schools and each of them had said that she was “dumb”, “slow learner”, “Problem child”. This made me realise the need for a school that caters to children who to do not fit the status quo of conventional learning.
Our school started out 8 years ago to cater to the needs of children who needed a lot of love and care as well as to learn in their own individual way. In South Africa the public schooling systems are quite overwhelmed with the number of students per classroom and likewise many of the Private schools have started chasing money instead of offering quality education to the children.
This paved the way to our little school which allowed us to bring children who are dynamic out-of-the-box-thinkers, these children do not fit into the mould society has created for them and are thus seen as different.
What we strive to do is to allow the children to learn on their own pace as well as how they would like to learn. We only catered for children up to Grade R and have since identified a huge need to grow into the Foundation phase of education. And so, begins the next step in our growth.
We have many students who attend our school because their parents cannot afford to pay school fees and would be not allowed to attend other schools without paying fees. So, what we do at our school is we allow these kids to attend because education and learning is vital for all. We offer an environment where parents feel safe to leave their kids and go to work.
We would like to raise funds to fund the next step in our growing school as well as to allow us to accommodate more such students who need to learn in this environment and cannot afford to pay for their education.
We are reaching out to all prospective investors who would like to contribute to our cause and assist us in making dreams come true.
We have started the expansion phase of the school and have already invested all our capital we are now in the final phase and need to raise funds by 15th November 2019 as the school will be opening its new doors on the 01st December 2019.
From all the Children, Staff and Parent as well as myself we would like to personally thank each one for your contribution
