Foundations Program a Success

By 5 years ago
Categories Cape Town

The time has come to draw a line under another very successful GVI Foundations project. For those of you who haven’t heard (where have you been??) we had a group of 15-17 year olds working at Marine Primary school near Cape Town, and I think it is fair to say they’ve left a mark. In the case of our construction program that was a very visible mark with hours of painting creating an educational atmosphere “both in and out of the classroom”. For other parts, such as the computer workshops we were helping out with that mark may be less obvious, but no less important. We have left behind us some very grateful teachers and students. On our last day we were inundated with people wanting photos taken with us and the head teacher and volunteer coordinators all gave mini speeches thanking us. I’m sure I speak for everyone involved in wanting to thank the staff and kids at Marine for a memorable fortnight. We certainly hope it has laid the foundations for a long term partnership between GVI and Marine.
