I want to help and teach poor children in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa basic levels of the English Language. The ability to master the English Language will help the children to move out of the poorest conditions imaginable and secure employment and provide for their families when they are young adults.

I just completed a 2 week volunteering in the Transkei. (Xhosa People live here in underdeveloped conditions) I teamed up with an NPO Qolora Edu Centre (https://web.facebook.com/QoloraEduCentre?_rdc=1&_r...)

Debby and Theo Potgieter (South Africans) are dedicating their lives to initiate English reading and learning programs in primary schools in the Transkei. They concentrate with the young kids (6-9 years) to lay the foundation of the language. I really loved my time in the Transkei and I want to return for another 6 months to teach the children and make a difference in their ability to read and communicate in English.

During the last 7 years Theo and Debby took in countless of International volunteers from countries like Germany and Spain. The R106 ( 6 Euro) per day from the volunteers pay for the volunteers' food and accomodation and the rest fund the Education centre. The centre is visited after school by the children and they are taught life skills , scouts , learning thru creative play or they recieve help with their homework. Depending on the skills of the volunteers the centre might have chess classes or drama classes and it is a safe and friendly place for the kids to play.

During Covid 19 Debby and Theo could not host any volunteers which meant that the kids are not receiving enough help during the reading programs at school. No funding is received from the South African Government during this period or any previous period.

If i can return to the schools and the education centre I will be able to make a difference and help with the reading programs and help Theo with the scouts and help the kids with homework.

I need R106 per day to return to the Transkei. I will return when 30 x R106 was donated. This will enable me to stay in the Transkei for the first month. I ask everyone that can donate to please help me which in turn will help the children of the Transkei .

please see facebook page of the NPO https://web.facebook.com/QoloraEduCentre?_rdc=1&_r...

I thank you.
