I am very excited to announce that we are taking on a brand new project in Dumphries B!
After a year, Jeremiah is doing really well, and there are 25 girls, and 38 boys registered for 2009. They are all doing very well, and they are still being supplied with Food in the form of a porridge with all the daily requirements they need .
We have now decided to use the donations on hand, in Dumphries B, where the majority of Leopard Hills Staff members are from. There is a lovely Pre school Creche there, called Deyani, and they currently have 44 boys and 46 girls registered for 2009. The age group in Deyani is 0 – 6 years.
The créche is run by Esther, and she also has two assistants helping with the children. In addition to the 3 teachers, there are also 2 ladies who take care of the cooking, and cleaning, this is all done on a voluntary basis. The building they are in, is in great condition as is the play area outside.
We have decided to buy them a CD Player with some Sing-Along Songs, as well as a Television and DVD player and some DVD’s, to add even more fun to their days at school
The houses in this village have no running water and the people have to walk great distances many times a day to collect water in 25 litre drums which they carry home, so we are also looking into buying Hippo Rollers or Q-Drums, which will make life much easier for them daily. Hippo Rollers can hold 100litres of water, and Q-drums hold 50 litres and as the name suggests, they can be rolled.
Q-Drums are priced as follows:
All prices below exclude transportation fees and are quoted in South African Rands (ZAR)

Qty: 100 – 499 drums – R430 per unit
