Construction of a kindergarten in South Africa

A project from Erdbewegung e.V.
in Cape Town, South Africa

Become part of building a home for the kindergarten "Kideo Kids" in South Africa! Instead of the former shack, we would like to build a two-storey stone house.

Hey, 

nice that you're here! My name is Clara and if I'm not wandering around the world I live in the black forest near Freiburg in Germany. 

From 2013-2014 I did a voluntary service in South Africa where I worked, played, laughed and loved in the kindergarten 'Kideo Kids' in one of Cape Town's townships for 12 months. 

At that time, the kindergarten was built out of corrugated iron and wooden boards. Both the walls and ceiling were leaking and could not provide protection from rain and wind. In addition the lack of space was an enormous problem for the kindergarten and family life. My boss Veronica Gosa lived and still lives in the same building with her husband George and their children - both the kitchen and the toilet are shared by the kindergarten and the family. Neither in, nor in front of the house there is enough space to meet the urge to move of the children or the privacy of the family. Furthermore, the kindergarten is a Waldorf facilities in theory, which unfortunately isn't the reality in practice due to the conditions described above. Back then, my fellow volunteers and I started collecting donations and helping with other volunteers with the demolition and the beginning of the construction, but we neither had the means, nor the reach, nor the experience to collect enough money for the complete construction. 

Let's get to the here and now. 

Four years ago seven friends and I founded the non-profit organization 'Erdbewegung e.V. - Verein für eine global Miteinander'. Among other projects of our NGO this gives me the opportunity to revive the project and hopefully finally finish it with the help of many supporters. 

Maybe you will be one of them?

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Thank you for your time! 
Clara
