Greenwich Kindergarten is a children’s pre-school led by three incredibly strong and inspiring women. Director Anna started the school with only two children and within two years, Greenwich has blossomed to nearly 70 students. She runs the school with the help of teacher Elly, teacher Lea and her nephew teacher Edward. Through their passion for teaching, they have created a positive and supportive learning environment for kids aged 3-7. From the very first day, we’ve been constantly amazed by their ability to have created such a wonderful school solely based upon their willingness to teach.
Director Anna is a single mother of two young adults who both live in the school with her, along with her niece, nephew and mother who all play a crucial role at Greenwich. Due to her dedication to the children, she has shaped a curriculum enhancing the students ability to learn in the most effective way, creating an environment of love, support and positivity that is present within the foundation of the school; from her teaching methods to the porridge she prepares every morning for them. Her immense feeling of responsibility and willingness to educate underprivileged children of the area is very apparent in the way she runs her school; by making use of innovative & creative teaching methods using resources from the world around her, utilising simple materials outside the classroom. Yet, despite her best efforts, she is unable to teach to her full potential due to the extreme lack of materials/resources available to the school.
It is without question that Greenwich has given many children an opportunity to pre-school education, yet the lack of money within the school has paralysed the ability to provide essential educational resources for the children, which is undoubtedly a crucial component for a productive learning environment. The school lacks basic resources such as blackboards, desks, teaching material, a clean source of water and a recreational space. Hence we are asking for your support and kindness to help us achieve our goal in giving the school the resources they so sorely lack in order to nourish the development that is this growing school.
Heres where the funds are going:
*Blackboards, desks, shelves, cupboards, teacher desks: approx $800
*Classroom material, stationary, nutritional porridge: approx $600
*Improving classroom infrastructure; paint, renovating walls, electrical advancements: approx $700
*Creating new recreational space: approx $900
In total, our aim is $3000
The smallest donation can make a HUGE difference!
Thank you so much for the support and for spreading the word!
