US Embassy delegation visit

posted 23 Oct 2011, 02:20 by Michelle Brear

A delegation from the US embassy visited Matjana  Preschool to assess whether or not the school was an appropriate organisation to receive a US Ambassadors Community Grant for Vulnerable Children. We have requested about 80,000 rands under this grant scheme.

The preschool submitted an application for the funding in March this year, requesting money to build a kitchen which would serve the school students and children in the Ndabeni community. The project would also involve establishing a garden to supply fruit and vegetables for the kitchen. For more details see the
full grant application

Organisations applying for the grant must be run by community members and have previous experience with a similar project. Our experience managing a school, and (almost) building a classroom will hopefully serve us well. And we're very confident that our community kitchen project will fulfil the aim of the grant, that is provide a very necessary resource for the vulnerable children of Ndabeni area.
