The Vusumzi Primary School renovations began in earnest in March 2013. Early renovations included the installation of an alarm system, security for the future computer lab, perimeter fencing, and stone pavement. Subsequent renovations resulted in the transformation of 28 classrooms. We have refurbished the infrastructure, from ceilings to floor tiling to electricity to new doors. Improvements to the school also include a clean water system, a state-of-the-art computer lab, and an outdoor classroom.

The photos below depict the classrooms before renovations began.

And after: 

Our renovations were significantly bolstered by the families and friends who so generously contributed to our Vusumzi School Legacy Initiative. As individuals and in groups, people stepped up to name South African classrooms after loved ones. 

Four naming opportunities remain. If you are interested in dedicating a classroom at Vusumzi Primary School, please donate or contact us. Please click on the photos below to learn how each individual has positively affected countless lives.
