Henna Pre-school/New Beginnings – Huntington Village
Sponsored by: Lion Sands, Mpumalanga
Henna Pre-school was More Community Foundation’s first project, which commenced in 2002. Over the two decades to follow, our relationship with the school has fostered a positive relationship with the community, assisting us with the successful launch of other projects in the Huntington Village. The school currently has a total of 11 permanent staff members, including teachers, cooks, cleaners and a security guard. It too is moving across to the Department of Education in 2022. Enrolment on average included approximately 140 learners. In 2019, the New Beginnings Day-care project (which provided support to young mothers for their babies and toddlers for over 14 years) was moved to Henna Preschool.
NEEDS: New toilets for learners, new classroom windows, a new ceiling for two classrooms and roof repairs
