A Classroom at the Creche

Results: Final Report

This grant supported the construction of an additional classroom for Sunshine Creche, a preschool in Pearston, located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Sunshine Creche was overcapacity and desperately needed an additional classroom in order to accommodate the 83 students enrolled. The community raised $4,831 toward the construction of another classroom which was a huge accomplishment in a community that struggles every day to meet their basic needs. GO Campaign was able to provide the additional funds needed to complete the construction. Prior to the new classroom being built, all children in Sunshine Crèche were being taught in a single room. With over 80 children (aged 2 years to 5 years) this was a near-impossible task for the teachers. Now the children can be split into two age groups and can be taught separately.
