Vaallus NGK Primary School is a small farm school, 30 km outside of Douglas, Northern Cape, South Africa.
The learners at the school are made up of the children of local farm laborers as well as a large group of Khoi-San children, who come from the nearby settlement of Schmidtsdrift. Children are transported by a departmental bus to school.
The above mentioned community is dependent on seasonal work. Income is minimal and not consistent and this results in opportunities for our learners being very limited. Many of them have not even been to the surrounding towns let alone places that are a little further away. The Khoi-San learners are particularly isolated. For this reason we are committed to providing our children with an unforgettable “bigger-world” experience.
We are planning to take our children in October 2018 on a 5-day educational tour of the Garden Route of South Africa. For almost all of our children it will mean their first ever experience of the sea. We would like to visit the following places:
Oudtshoorn: Cango Wildlife Rance ; Cango Caves Adventure
George: Outeniqua Powervan ; Redberry Farm ; Super Tube and Snake Park
Mossel Bay : Dias Maritime Museum ; Aquarium ; Snorkeling and Tidal Pool;
Wildernis : Wildwoords Tree Adventures and Zipline ; Garden Route Mall
Plettenberg: Elephant park; Monkeyland ; Birds of Eden
The value of such a tour will be enormous. Our Khoi-San learners will be able to learn more of their history and will also be able to see where their ancestors came from. All of our learners will benefit from experiencing so many activities and seeing new places so vastly different to their familiar world.
The financial hurdle that we need to overcome to make this a reality is daunting. We will need to pay for accommodation, transport, food, clothing, toiletries and all entrance fees. Our parents cannot afford to contribute so we are entirely dependent on donations. The estimated cost of the tour for our 55 learners will be …………
Our expenses can be broken up as follows:
Hire of bus Includes the: R 72 500
Clothing & shoes@ R 200 per child for 5 days R 55, 000
Spending money @ R 100 per child per day R 27, 500
Water R 5 000
First Aid kit R 2 500
Accommodation @ R 2000 per child it include R 110, 000
Total Cost R 267 500
$ 18,387 (Dollar)
£ 13, 932 (British Pound)
€ 15,714 (Euro)
We are writing to you to request any support you are able to offer. By working together and taking hands with many, we can make this tour a reality for our children.
