Goal summary

The Rainbow School is a school for mentally disabled children in Humansdorp, South Africa. The goal of this project is to equip the new school building with the necessary furniture, school boards, desks, and a cooking facility for many years to come. Because the Victory4All foundation spend all the funds into building this amazing school, we need your to help to equip the school for its future!

Project summary

Currently there are 78 children in this school but there are over a 100 applications, because there are no other facilities for these kids in the surrounding areas. A local foundation just finished building a beautiful extension to the original building with three new classrooms, toilets, a kitchen and an office for Rosa, who runs this project.

How

With funds we can partner with local suppliers to buy new interior and even create interior for the Rainbow School. Also we are having a special cooking facility made to cook for 140 kids every day.

Beneficiaries

  • In South Africa there is an arrangement that people with disabled children get more money per month to take care of them. The result of this arrangement is that many young women in the township will get pregnant very young and drink threw out their pregnancy so that their kids will be born with the so called alcohol-syndrome. This in order to receive more government money each month, but the children themselves are being neglected and outcasted. The ANC however upholds this arrangement because it is their main source of winning votes.
