We are currently working with the community to start a pre-school in the Khwai Village. The children will be taught by a local teacher and assistant from the Khwai Community and we have trained pre-school teachers willing to volunteer to assist in the training of these teachers. There are over 30 children in the community aged between 3 and 6 years who would attend the pre-school until at 6 years old they leave for Maun or boarding school to start their formal schooling.
We are currently in the process of securing a building for the pre-school and fundraising for play-ground equipment, pre-school materials such as arts and crafts equipment, educational toys, games and puzzles.
The greatest challenge for the elderly in the community is access to running water. There are community water points throughout the village but with the limited mobility of the elderly, these are inaccessible to them. At present there are 5 homesteads of elderly people in Khwai in need of having water made accessible which we are currently fundraising for.
