OTS safari guests take time out to visit a local school

On Track Safari guests, Penny and Chris Riggot and Charlotte and Mark Boughton from the UK, took time out from their Wildlife Safari last week, to visit one of the rural schools that we support.
Pictured with a pupil at Bosfontein Primary, they were shown the new IT room that we have helped to build for the school. Enabling pupils to reach out from their isolated rural community and get in touch with other children around the world as well as learning essential IT skills that we hope will serve them well in future years..
All four guests had a great afternoon at the school and have pledged their support, hoping to raise some donations once they return to the UK.
Although Bosfontien school needs to survive on a budget of less than $6,000/year  there is a great spirit amongst pupils and teachers alike. The atmosphere is one laughter coupled with a desire to learn, which is inspiring to all who visit. Their path out of poverty is not an easy one, but we know that with help from our safari guests such as Penny, Chris, Mark and Charlotte we will be able to help the pupils to enjoy a brighter future.
