Data projectors for Maths teachers Thembeka and Nelisiwe

Data projectors for Maths teachers Thembeka and Nelisiwe

Personal message


I am Lloyd Smuts of the Vula outreach project in KZN (

Since 2001 we have assisted hundreds of Maths and Science teachers to cope with the demands of teaching these subjects in the under-resourced township and rural schools in KZN.

Since 2014 we have provided in-service training to 160 Maths teachers through the term-long Vula Maths Academy (VuMA). The teachers who attend VuMA return to their schools with a sponsored laptop crammed full of teaching resources and a desire to teach differently and more effectively.
In order to achieve the full benefits of this training and the laptop, schools have to provide a data projector for use by the teachers.

Many schools are unable to do this.

We are hoping to provide two of the VuMA teachers, Thembeka Bhengu and Nelisiwe Zondo, whose school cannot afford to buy projectors, with the equipment they need to improve their teaching.

Thembeka and Nelisiwe will be able to use their equipment and training to achieve great results in their classrooms.

To all who contribute, an enormous and sincere thanks for making it possible for Thembeka and Nelisiwe to teach more effectively.

The funds will be paid into the account of the Hiltonian Society NPC which, through the Vula Programme at Hilton College, will ensure that the projectors are purchased and delivered to the beneficiaries.
