Without our valuable sponsors, the continued success of the Freewalker Charity Project’s would be almost impossible…
The children of Summerwood Primary in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth spent their last few days of school collecting items to give to the Kwa-Ford Primary in New Brighton. Kwa-Ford was in need of teaching material, educational posters, crayons, pencils, and more… and Summerwood was able to step up and help! The children and teachers of Kwa-Ford are extremely happy and thankful for the gifts and look forward to using it all throughout this school year! The schools hope to create a bond between them, in hopes to broaden their horizons and together work toward a better future for the children!

Margarethe Schuck, mother of a previous Freewalker Volunteer Melanie Schuck, is a compassionate teacher at the Grundschule Harburg, Germany. She and her students have been inspired by Mel’s work in South Africa and wanted to make a difference and help! They organized a bake-off at the school and sold the baked goods over their recess breaks to raise money for the Kwa-Ford Primary School. The money raised is going towards building a new kitchen at the school to help with sanitary conditions for the students. The German school has also generously donated crayons, pens, pencils, books, paper, art kits, educational tools and so much more! The children and teachers at Grundschule have amazingly compassionate hearts and are doing their part in making a difference in this world through education! The Kwa-Ford Primary in South Africa is overly thankful for the generous support and look forward to a long term relationship with the children of Grundschule!

“We are so happy to have the possibility to have found the best way for donating this money. I know in Europe or America it’s not really much, but in our opinion it’s a lot for South Africa. We are so thankful to support education and let’s hope a better life for these kids without the big problems of unemployment and poverty.
Paul King (T&C Contractors) has kindly donated carpets to the school. These are being used in the International Culture Room.
Do you know one thing: If you watch at these pictures, you can only see happy and satisfied children. During my stay in SA I could only see happy people although some didn’t know what they should eat at supper because they were so poor. It’s amazing many people are so happy and open-minded without having a large property.”

Money was raised in America by Andrea Opitz and in the UK by Claire Barker for the renovations of a new library. The room now has bookshelves, carpet, freshly painted walls, and curtains. Claire has also sent four boxes full of educational equipment for the kids.
