BUILDING HOPE

LamaMpumuza

iThemba Community Centre Fundraiser

$84,000!

 

This is the amount needed to complete the iThemba Community Centre. These final parts are vital to making the building fully operational as a place of hope.

 

The Community Centre already has a preschool that is improving the quality of education in the area, an organic garden that provides nutrition as well as gardening education, and rammed earth structures that have taught construction skills based on renewable resources.

 

To bring the centre to its full potential so that after school programming and community events can start, we need to finish things like the roof, adult toilet block, kitchen, and parking lot. Once these are complete, the construction team can move on to other community building projects, and the centre can be fully operational.
