We already have two. The kids need two more.

Avian Park, the township in Western Cape, South Africa, is run by several rival gangs. No one from one gang can cross into another gang’s territory. Doing so will result in violence and even shootings. This has created such fear that children and others that are not involved directly in gangs are basically stuck in “their” territory. 

Wendy houses are a common type of prefabricated wooden shack that are fairly cheap to purchase and easy to install. Two local families have agreed to lend a portion of their land to put up Wendy Houses. One went up in early March and the second in May. As a result of establishing these classrooms, we are able to offer computer classes, woodworking, discipleship, games, a cinema and more to the kids in the surrounding territory.

The programs are staffed by local, strong believers.  Using local talent insures sustainability of the programs for the kids.

But, We Need Two More Wendy Houses to meet the needs of the kids.  

Because the neighborhood is divided by gangs some of the children cannot cross to the other side to reach one of the current houses.  God gave us the idea of having classrooms in the four corners of the township so we can reach as many kids as possible from all the sides, all the gangs. 

Each building costs $1000.  The total needed to purchase the buildings and supply the schools is $3500.
