A classroom is urgently needed to provide the children with their own, environmentally safe and conducive learning space
Location: Newlands, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal
About: Monica Mulaqueeny established Monica’s Kidz Academy in 2015 and is a proud member of the GROW Educare Centre programme since 2017.
Challenge: The pre-school is not able to obtain full registration with the appropriate authorities, as a health and fire certificate cannot be issued. This is as a result of the garage being used as a classroom. The cars are parked in the garage at night and removed in the morning. The classroom is set up at 06h00 but in order for any fuel fumes to dissipate, the children are only allowed into the venue at 06h45.
The need: A classroom is urgently needed to provide the children with their own, environmentally safe and conducive learning space. A 30m² prefab classroom will allow them to meet the health and safety criteria necessary for registration.
Beneficiaries: 29 children between the ages of two and six years.
