The Cavern

Project

The Khanyisela Project and Royal Drakensberg Primary School: We believe that the only way to make a real contribution to our community is through education. We support 13 Crèche in the Amazizi Village.

In addition to the Crèche project, we have helped establish an independent school just 500 meters from the Cavern, The Royal Drakensberg Primary School. There is a great need for holistic education of a world class standard in our area.

Conditions in these rural areas are poor and the teachers lack resources and infrastructure.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 28, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
