‘The school project has been moving very slowly with transport being a problem too. But …. AT LAST we have a school with actual buildings, the other good news is that a community member has a bakkie which is available to transport our kids. We have not been able to go on Heritage outings as transport has been impossible. Now we are all set to go ahead. Its been very hot in the Kalahari although there has been wonderful rain recently. I had never seen the Kalahari so dry as before the rain last week. Unless it rains again it will be too hot take the kids out into the veld until March. We will have the official opening of the school on the 10th March, would be wonderful if you could attend? How is the money pot looking? We would like to have the kids to a little performance at the opening and if possible we could pay Lys Kruiper to teach the kids a traditional song with dance and have outfits to go with it. I’ll send pics of school once all the first phase building are in place or would you like some as we go along? At present we have a classroom and office, in about 3 weeks the kitchen and toilets will arrive. A classroom a year will be added for the next 3 years.’ Email sent to Sani Lodge from Claire Barry who works closely with the Khomani Bushman community in the Kalahari.
