Some of our priority projects

To donate to our projects, see info below:

The Literacy Centre
The vision was to set up a reading centre to encourage literacy to the primary school going children of Walmer Locaton but there was not enough space to accommodate enough facilitators and children attending the programme in the current venue.

The Walmer Angel Projects managed to raise funds for the purchase of a good second hand 12m Container which has now been placed on the school premises.  The goal is to set up this container, converting it into a centre allowing maximum use of space to occupy more facilitators and children increasing the number of children in each session, most of this is on track for the school year of 2015.

The container will allow the Projects to accommodate double to what our previous room allowed. Funding for the paving in front of the centre is secured and realised, we would like to use this extra space to have further groups reading outside when the weather allows. We now are aiming to obtain material and or funding for a roof/shade structure to enable optimal use of this area.

Management of the Programme
Our Centre Manager whose main function is to co-ordinate and ensure that the programme day to day operation runs smoothly, effectively and within the guidelines of the programme.   We feel this position is a vital link to the success of the programme and as we are working with volunteers and children we must ensure that the guideline of the proven programme as per the Shine Foundation is adhered to at all times.  Marcelle is available to inform any interested individuals or groups with more detailed information on our Shine Chapter and training.

We are appealing to all individuals, groups or companies to consider assisting us with the erection of a “shade port” which will cover our container roof area as well as all the paved area in front of the container. We have sourced a quotation and we are looking at having to raise approximately R37 000 to install the roof/shade structure.

We are currently without any form of electricity in our Centre. On very hot days we are certainly challenged with having no way to run our cooling fans that have been sponsored and the creating of correct light to work/read will be a challenge when we face gloomy winter days soon, so with that in mind we are also needing to install an electrical power point in our Centre and funds for this installation thereof.

The Walmer Angel Projects is grateful for the continued support it receives from many organisations, Businesses and the community at large_ Nangamso!

May your generosity never tire.
