Signature Project

Hangberg Pre Primary School PlanHangberg flyer

Rotary Club am Kap is supporting a number of projects all of which focus on education in one form or another.

We are delighted that at the end of last year we were able to announce the successful funding of our signature project, the building of a Pre Primary School in the Hangberg Area of Hout Bay in Cape Town.

Hangberg has been in the news as a problem area with many families suffering from the economic and social effects of unemployment, substance abuse and poor accommodation. The primary school in the area is doing a sterling job but often the children who attend have not had the benefit of earlier childhood education and therefore struggle from day one.

The Hangberg Pre-Primary School for which the Hangberg Trust has developed the necessary plans and infrastructure will go along way to securing a proper educational grounding for the youngest children in the Hangberg area.

Together with the support of other Rotary Clubs in Germany ( RC Neuss and RC Germering) whose members are frequent visitors to RC Am Kap the necessary funding has been put together. RC Am Kap’s Director of Projects has taken up a seat on the Hangberg Trust and thus the club is regularly informed of the progress of the project. We are also fortunate to have members of RC Am Kap who have the architectural and building know how to advise and monitor as the project progresses.

For more information, please have a look at our current projects.
