A New Outreach Centre at the Waterloo School in Durban, KZN

Maurita recently traveled to Durban to give a two-day training course to over 70 teachers, parents and volunteers. 

Megan Viljoen contacted us earlier this year, enquiring as to whether or not Shine could help her set up a literacy centre at the Waterloo School in Durban, with funding provided by the Southern Sun leisure group. 

It was great to see that so many interested parties want to be involved with the Waterloo School, and we look forward to  hearing about their progress. We know that with hard work and enthusiasm, a literacy centre can successfully take off. 

Joan Conyngham started a centre in Durban called the Sunshine Kids only a month ago. Joan started with six volunteers, and she now has ten people working with her after only her third session. This is yet another wonderful story, and we will be supporting the KZN centres in every way we can.
