31 CLUB are delighted with their latest education project. In just six months a learning resource Centre was erected fully equipped with books and learning materials for Ukusakwabasha Primary School in the KwaNuyswa area of Botha’s Hill.

The handover, which took place recently, was attended by excited teachers, pupils, donors and members of 31 Club.
“We were told about this special school with a dynamic headmaster and dedicated staff who work in a challenging environment, doing their utmost to educate their pupils to the best of their ability. Ukusakwabasha adopted the Gateway into Reading programme developed and run by Neema Foundation in Kloof. Currently all pupils are being taught in English through reading and phonetics and Neema volunteers visit the school weekly. Special mention must be made of ‘The Learn Project” who donated over 700 beautiful books,” said Jo Behr of 31 Club.

The 31 Club has been active in KZN for 54 years and continues making a difference to several charity organisations and less fortunate people within the community.
Members work on a voluntary capacity organising various functions throughout the year to raise funds.
These funds are used for projects such as this, as well as to purchase much needed items for several charities that approach the Club for assistance each year. For details, email Jo Behr at behr@mweb.co.za.
