I would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU for your donation in aid of our library....
On behalf of the children, the governing body and the community as a whole , we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for this generous gesture.
We are in the beginning stages of putting up a fully functional library and appreciate every little gift to realise our bigger dream , to improve our literacy and numeracy results.
We will keep you up to date with our progress and will not forget to mention you when we have our official opening .....
My name is Constance Stuurman and I am the newly appointed principal of Fraaisig Primary .. Our vision is to become a school of excellence and your donation supports this vision....
Thanking you kindly...

New Fund raising activity by Youngstown State University students
PLATW will be selling these Alex and Ani style bracelets. They're $30 and all proceeds go towards South African student's needs. For every 4 sold, we will "adopt" a child for a year. The child will be able to attend school, have one meal per day guaranteed, receive a uniform, and receive school supplies. Additionally, we will meet the kids we adopted while on our trip in May. If you wish to purchase one, please click on DONATE button. Thank you!!
80% of the children in adopted schools have AIDS, TB and many have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Many of the children were homeless. Food is limited and the villagers often cook one pot of porridge for the children, which might be their only meal of the day.
School supplies were also very limited and five children would share one pencil. Each year individuals associated with Project Learning Around the World gather and hand deliver school supplies, reading books, or small equipment to various South African township schools.
We are looking for monetary contributions to help purchase:
It only takes a moment to make a donation using Paypal. If each person visiting our website would donate $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, or more, we would reach our goals quickly. All monies donated go directly to the children's fund. Thank you.
