Ian Macdonald Hillwood Primary Campaign

Personal message

IAN BELIEVED PASSIONATELY IN IMPROVING THE LIVES OF OTHERS ... HELP US CONTINUE HIS MISSION!
Hillwood Primary in Lavender Hill is a school that was close to Ian’s heart – for the past 2 years he had partnered with principal Gavin Alkana through the Partners for Possibility Program to improve the facilities and experiences of staff and learners at the school. In the above 1 min clip Ian talks about his desire to mobilise his network to help Hillwood and poorly resourced schools like it. Lets mobilise! Join friends and family as we continue with Ian’s good works by carrying out various upliftment projects at the school.

PROJECT 1: UPGRADE GRADE 1 CLASSROOMS
Aim: Raise R90,000+ to refurbish 3 x Grade 1 Classrooms
We want to help the Grade 1 educators at Hillwood by creating stimulating, colourful, well-resourced classrooms where learners want to be, and that enable learning in the best possible way. The project will include painting, fixing broken chairs and desks, repairing broken windows, reflooring etc – the list is endless, and the more we can raise, the more we can do.

If sufficient funds are raised, we will move on to the Grade 2 classrooms

DONATIONS
Any amount no matter how small will be appreciated!
