Universal Promise has spent the past five years systematically leading the charge to transform a once-ignored school in Nomathamsanqa, South Africa. Our last step in this unprecendented effort is to provide proper chairs and desks for each student at Vusumzi Primary School, whose enrollment has doubled in the same time period. This is our last major "infrastucture" initiative at VPS. Please visit www.universalpromise.org to learn more about our efforts, from the provision of a first-ever computer laboratory to clean water to professional development to a playground to electricity to all that is required to meet the expectations for what South African residents expressed as their dream expectations for their children's schools.
The new Universal Promise Academic Centre at the same school has four state-of-the-art classrooms (library, science lab, dance and music studio, arts studio), and we wish to bring that same quality to every classroom on-site. Every $2,000 raised will allow us to outfit one classroom completely. Ideally, we would like to furnish 15 classrooms. If we raise $10,000, we will furnish 5 classrooms, if we raise $20,000, we will furnish 10 classrooms, and if we raise $30,000, we will outfit the entire school. One step at a time!
