Molatedi Primary School is a Government primary school in Molatedi Village, that is around 10km from the Madikwe Game Reserve. Even though it is a Government school, the support from Government is minimal. The school has 152 learners and is staffed by nine teachers. All the learners are from Molatedi Village. Morukuru Family Madikwe assists, when possible, with anything that the school might need, and also gives guests the opportunity to visit the school.

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. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.
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.
