Budget (total E55410)

Infrastructure and organising costs (total E28420)

  • Lap top computer E11,000
  • Dongle E500
  • Internet time E500 X 12 = E6000
  • 20% wage for facilitator (6 hours per week at E25= E150 per week X 52 weeks) E7800
  • Transport for facilitator (E60 per week X52 weeks)  E3120

Michelle and Tessa who will support Fortunate (facilitator) to plan and conduct the workshops will work on a voluntary basis.

The laptop computer will be used by the facilitator to prepare for the sessions (and will also be used for other work at Matjana Preschool) and to use Skype to communicate with teachers in other countries during the workshops.

The facilitator’s wage will enable her to develop pre-reading material and workshop hand outs and plan each session. She will travel to town from Matjana to do some of her preparations, and will also visit the schools of workshop participants and work with them to prepare some of the workshops, in order to hand on her facilitation skills.
