Project Ten Cohort 3 has landed in Durban and we've hit the ground running!
We started off our orientation week by welcoming Shavuot with flowers and lots of delicious dairy food. We would like to thank the KNZC for their generosity which made a very special meal possible. We continued our busy week of orientation with visits to, and discussions with, all of the volunteering projects.
This Cohort is split into 3 groups - Education, Social Development, and Agriculture. All groups have all been very busy these past couple weeks planning, building, teaching, and planting, all while learning about our new Durban community and soaking up the South African culture.
We are thrilled that we are continuing with existing projects – continuing to provide adult computer courses with Protec; youth development sessions with the refugee community at Tumaini; and a growing relationship with Amaoti 3 combined schools.
We are also very excited to embark on new projects. We have partnered with Zwakele Primary School (in Amaoti) where we are spending 2 full days a week teaching, assisting and running extra special classes for the children. This month we are focusing on teaching self defense so that the children know how to keep themselves safe. We have also partnered with Rotary Umhlanga who has led us to very exciting agriculture projects. 3 days a week we are out on farms in rural Inanda, helping to plant, irrigate and keep the land in top shape so that these poor communities are able to get the most out of the land as possible.
We're so excited for what lies ahead. Stay tuned - amazing things are yet to come these next few months!
