Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela In the informal settlements surrounding Jeffreys Baai and Humansdorp Kings college is dedicated to restoring and educating the future generation of South Africa. Only with the right fundaments in place, will change be possible. The demand for education is high and the classrooms lack the capacity to contain the number of students.


By using wooden housing units, we will construct 2 new classrooms, using the resources as efficiently as possible. Additionally to an opportunity of education, these units will provide shelter and warmth in the cold South African winters, of which many of these students do not have the privilege of. Besides the structure, this project will focus on the interior of the classrooms, therefore providing the necessary environment for the students.


The goal of this project is to provide two new classrooms to the constantly expanding Kings College School in the informal areas of Jeffreys baai. By achieving these prospects, we will be able to give over 60 kids each year a continuous level of high quality education and consequently a better future, and a hope of breaking the cycle of poverty.
