Tjhabelang Primary School

Tjhabelang Primary School

We had the pleasure of hosting Mrs Engela Fourie and Mareli du Plooy from Tjhabelang Primary School on Friday 21st June 2013.

Tjhabelang Primary School provides the children of Bainsvlei, a rural area to the west of Bloemfontein, with the opportunity to enjoy an above average educational experience at a fraction of the cost of similar schooling in town. Tjhabelang’s holistic approach to education attends
to learners’ academic, physical, social and spiritual needs, thereby opening the mind to the possibility that life offers unlimited opportunities that, with the right skills and attitude of self-belief,
can lift people out of poverty and onto a path of purposeful self-determination. The founders of Tjhabelang believe a child’s experiences in his or her first nine years of life are fundamental to
shaping his or her attitude and approach to education in general.

Tjhabelang is fully dependent on the generosity of donors to finance its operations. You can visit their website at
