Chairperson of Adopt-a-School, President Cyril Ramaphosa launches 3 schools in KwaZulu-Natal

Share This Post

Chairperson of Adopt-a-School Foundation, President Cyril Ramaphosa attended the handover of three primary schools namely Enhlanhleni, Lembe and Ingweni Phaphama in Dannhauser, Utrecht and Vryheid situated in the Amajuba and Zululand District municipalities respectively in the KwaZulu-Natal province.

A single handover ceremony involving all three schools was held at the Enhlanhleni Primary School in Dannhauser near Newcastle.

In partnership with the Adopt-a-School Foundation as the implementing agent, the schools were built under the Department of Basic Education’s Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI) with the objective of eradicating schools without water, sanitation and electricity and to replace schools constructed from inappropriate material.

The partnership is in response to the President’s call for collaboration between government and civil society to realise the right of children to safety and dignity in educational facilities.

At the three schools, mud structures built by communities more than 30 years ago, have been replaced with modern brick and mortar structures with additional design elements that allow for a positive learning environment.

The impact of ASIDI provides infrastructure that exceeds the minimum norms and standards for educational facilities in South Africa. Secondly, much more than brick and mortar, ASIDI schools are helping to restore dignity and pride for people who were for far too long deprived of facilities that are taken for granted elsewhere.
