Love to Langa, a US-based 501(c)3 charity with a history of completed build projects in Cape Town, South Africa, will now be embarking on a new project - The Love to Langa Learning Academy: a Montessori pre-school aimed at offering high quality education to 200 children annually, training future teachers from Langa Township and supporting the Langa community.
We are thrilled to share that we are finalizing the Memorandum of Understanding with a Langa Township land donor. The Love to Langa dream is coming full circle. We, as a board, have come a long way, from supporting children with scholarships, providing food and clothing, training teachers, art workshops, outings for previously disadvantaged children and adults, building a classroom, a library, a bathroom and bedroom at an orphanage and a learn to swim indoor heated pool.
With our dedicated donors, we are now embarking on building the very first Montessori school in Langa Township, Cape Town, South Africa.
The school will educate 200 children, from three to six years of age, provide extra-mural activities, and follow the Montessori philosophy. Montessori training will be offered to women in Langa and parent workshops will be available.
Here is the key for the concept drawing (below):
1. Community Hall
2. Covered sand play area
3. Store room and infirmary
6. Classroom 1
7. Classroom 2
8. Classroom 3 - flat roof for vegetable and fruit garden
9. Classroom 4/Training Room with upstairs Caretaker's Flat
The budget for this project is USD$300,000 - an incredibly reasonable sum when you consider what we will be able to accomplish. Please join us in making this dream a reality!
