The 4-5-year-olds at this pre-school need a dedicated classroom to prepare them for their first year of primary school
Location: Gugulethu, Western Cape
About: The pre-school is situated in a large informal settlement in Gugulethu, Cape Town. Gugulethu is passionately called or referred to as “Gugs” by the locals. The pre-school has grown quickly as the demand has increased. They have over the last 10 years faced the challenge of too little space and recently requested support from Breadline Africa.
Challenge: They currently use a single room to teach the three different age group classes. They use desks to separate the children into the different age groups but cannot provide comprehensive and age-appropriate learning in this manner. The older age group need a dedicated space to effectively prepare them for primary school.
The need: Breadline Africa recommends placing a 6m insulated classroom container which will provide the required additional space for a more conducive learning environment.
Beneficiaries: 31 children aged 2 to 5
