Masizakhe Community Pre-School employes 7 teachers and carers, and the monthly salary bill is R13,000.
When schools are closed (holiday months, or the 2020 lockdown), the teachers have no income because the parents only pay fees in the months that the children are at the school. Due to the average income of the area Masizakhe is situated in, having the parents pay school fees when the children are home, is not an option.
We are thus trying to build up a fund for the teachers, to make sure they get an income EVERY month, not just the months that the school is running at full capacity.
Some of the teachers are the sole breadwinners in their families. We appreciate every donation, no matter how small, to keep food on the teachers' tables!
