We began our Saturday at Salty Crax backpackers in Table View, the owner of which, Carla Ferreira has been awarded Elle Boss Entrepreneur 2016 top 3 finalist.

We met up with Carla and her team including Shannon Moore of Save Foundation and headed for the township of Dunoon which is situated in Milnerton.

The township has a population of around 31 000 residents and is home to Wings of Hope school and educare assistance project.

Save Foundation places volunteers in schools in disadvantaged communities. No experience is necessary and volunteers can have the joy of watching a child learn and helping them through the process.

Our group was assigned to clean and reorganise classrooms. We spent three hours scrubbing the walls, washing the toys, and doing a general spring clean.

We were all excited to get cleaning 🙂

The school is constructed of colourful shipping containers which surrounds an outdoor play area.

The containers create a safe area for children to play and learn in.

This little boy was playing with a cardboard box.

This is where he had lunch, Ngwenya, which is a deliciously soft deep fried bread. Tastes similar to a doughnut. Not the healthiest food, but for R3 bucks per bun, it was worth it!
