Trees for All is a greening programme run by Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA), that has been changing lives in barren, dusty and polluted environments for disadvantaged communities for over two decades. This programme is designed to: offset carbon emissions, provide shade, settle dust, green landscapes, encourage biodiversity, prevent soil erosion, reduce water run off, provide fruit and all the other wonderful gifts that trees bring to our lives.

MySchool proudly joined forces with the Woolworths Making the Difference Through Design Programme, Safmarine and Afrisam to transform an abandoned container into a much needed classroom for Grade R learners at Visserhok Primary School in Contermanskloof.

Grade 10 to 12 learners in the Western Cape were tasked to make over the container into a safe eco-friendly room that would inspire creativity, encourage learning and develop young minds – mission accomplished!

Thanks to our Supporters, MySchool sponsored R14 000 worth of shelves, furniture, beanbags and lap desks, towards the renovation.  

3 Days and over R1,6 million in renovations. This is what it took to transform this orphanage into a happy place and a dignified home for the 73 children who currently stay at Baphumelele Children’s Home.
