On 26 February 2019, the Adopt-a-School Foundation hosted the #Kili4Kids Climbers Press Launch to showcase the partnership between AAS, Flight Centre Foundation and their 14 climbers who jetted off to Tanzania on the 11 of March to trek the highest mountain in Africa.
These brave and adventurous volunteers are attempting to raise awareness and R1.4 million to construct a library, inclusive of resources, library books and librarian training for Qhobosheane Primary School in Diepkloof, Soweto. Amongst the climbers is our very own Fundraising Officer, Cassandra Pireu. She is one of the 14 volunteers who aim to raise R1.4 Million.
The Flight Centre Foundation adopted Qhobosheane Primary School through the Adopt-a-School Foundation in 2017. Through this partnership, the school has received renovations of their Grade R facility and the construction of a school feeding scheme kitchen. Together the two Foundations have also hosted a number of volunteer days focusing on the betterment of the school’s infrastructure.
