Makanya Nursery School
Kanyemba Lodge has recently commenced a program to support the operations of Makanya village’s small nursery school. Commencing with just 8 children, lessons were being conducted by a volunteer teacher, with children sitting on bricks and rocks under a tree.
The first priority for us was to get the children into a more comfortable space to learn, so cue Kanyemba’s Carpentry team to design and build 6 bench desks for the children to use. The shrieks of delight from the children as the desks were delivered were truly magical. Combined with the exercise books and simple school supplies purchased with funds donated by our guests, the children can now learn to read and write in a more comfortable and user-friendly working environment!
Now, with 25 children attending the preschool each day, our next (slightly more challenging) project is to provide a classroom for the children to use – and fundraising has commenced in earnest to ensure this happens as quickly as possible, providing the best early learning facilities we can for the eager young kids of Makanya.
