Currently, we have 40 students in our program and a classroom is generously given to us 6 days a week by God’s Will Faith Ministries church who also donated land for us to build the extra classroom. It has been our dream since to build another classroom so we can accommodate and assist more students.
In 2020, the dream finally became a reality as one of our directors, Diana Musara, had the idea to build the classroom out of Ecobricks – it would be the most cost-effective as the community and students were involved in picking plastic bottles and litter to build the bricks. Ecobricks were also donated by a number of organisations and schools taking away the cost of buying bricks. Earthly Touch, which is run by a group of upcoming entrepreneurs in construction, donated their time and skills to build the classroom for Khensani’s Collection. (For more information on Ecobricks and how they are helping save our planet, read the Wikipedia Article).
So far, we have built the walls, put on the roof and installed the window frames and solar panels. Next, we will plaster and paint, and we aim to have the classroom completed by 8 August 2020.
