How exciting for all the children at our flagship project in Red Hill last week. The CEO of National Geographic along with 2 cameramen and a videographer turned up to film the little ones on an average school day. When they arrived the look on the kids faces was unbelievable, they saw all these new visitors with their impressive equipment and gave them a very warm African welcome. Singing and dancing with the kids set the morning off with a happy vibe. All the photographers attention was on the kids and they loved it and wanted to get in on the action straight away. We watched as they had their English lessons, it was actually just as much fun to see grown-men singing along to heads, shoulders, knees and toes and reciting their ABC’s as it was too watch the kids! The film crew interacted very well without disturbing the lessons and it was obvious that the children adored having new visitors to smile and sing along with them. Red Hill is a fantastic example of how volunteering can benefit the local communities. Red Hill Community Pre-school is our flagship project which we have supported since 2008. This little pre school has been running for over 10 years in Red Hill and the 26 children from the community have been lead by the teaching of a very dedicated lady named Vuyiseka for the past 5 years. The 26 beautiful children range between 3 and 6 years of age, and mostly come from a Xhosa background. The school is run out of several containers with very limited resources. The children are given 2 meals a day, breakfast and lunch, which is sponsored by African Impact through our Sponsor a Child Initiative. African Impact have also stepped in by adopting this school and paying for the teacher's and cook’s monthly wages. This will be financed through volunteer project fees.
