I always think oh wow, that is great, but than … hmmm, don’t the people there are not amazing in building cheap things? why not using the money to let the people there built their own school with their skills and the material they have? involve them, make them independent, give them back the proud. give them the feeling they are useful part of their society, let them build confident??

The Vissershok Container Classroom, sponsored by three SA companies- Woolworths, Safmarine and AfriSam, is a 12m recycled container converted into an independent classroom for 25 Grade R (age 5-6) pupils. Located in the picturesque Durbanville wine valley, Vissershok Primary School is a rural school where most pupils are children of farm workers and underprivileged communities living in nearby Du Noon Township.
