SITE #7: Rondevlei Learning Centre
Rondevlei Learning Centre is a small community centre based in Rondevlei, George, and is the brainchild of Vinessa van Rensburg. The Learning Centre consists of 9 children who reside as weekly boarders at the Centre’s hostel rooms. RLC has been set up as a non-profit and public benefit organisation in order to assist, guide and educate underprivileged youth and to provide alternate and stimulating forms of education for those struggling with mainstream education.
The organization, as a non-profit organization, relies on sponsorship and donations and the dedicated teachers/staff and general assistants continuously involved in the Learning Centre do so on a voluntary basis.
The Centre has recently started a food and vegetable garden to supply the in-house kitchen which feeds the learners daily.
The grounds around the Centre are visibly absent of trees; the majority of the trees growing on the surrounding parts of the property are non indigenous trees (that require removing in terms of the Invasive Alien Management requirement) and that will be harvested for firewood for the Centre’s needs.
The staff and learners of the Rondevlei Learning Centre & The Precious Tree Project Team say THANK YOU WMO!
