New school for rural KZN learners

H Mgabadeli

The ANC welcomes the initiative of one of the most successful land restitution projects, owned by Amangcolosi Community Trust in KwaZulu-Natal, who has handed over five new classrooms worth more than R1 million to Dulumbe Primary School.

In 2007, the Department of Education built two classrooms for the school with 180 learners in that academic year, and fenced the area. The Amangcolosi Community Trust has now added five more modern classrooms. The Trust has not only built classrooms for the school, but has also handed over water projects, cattle dips and electricity project to the community.

This initiative is in line with the ANC policy of eliminating disparities in education, and will therefore help to alleviate the plight of the pupils, who had been learning under difficult conditions in a two-roomed building at a farm.

Thus the ANC encourages such partnerships geared at bringing about a better life to all.
