06 Feb 2019

Last week, the SOS Africa Children’s Charity reached another significant milestone as it completed its first education centre building project and officially opened its doors to the SOS Africa children.

The most ambitious education project in the charity’s 16-year history, “The Dudley Rotary Education Centre” designed by Claudia Titley has been fully-funded by Dudley Rotary Club. It has a timber frame and Nutek plank outer cladding with full insulation to cope with all weather conditions.

 

Completed in just 25 days, the multi-functional educational facility is designed to facilitate all aspects of the charity’s education programmes, providing 2 classrooms, a staff room, kitchen, library, counselling room and outside learning space. SOS Africa supporters were able to follow the progress of the build by viewing our Dudley Education Centre Project Blog.

The education centre will have an immediate impact upon the lives of children from the local township communities providing support to children with learning difficulties every morning and a holistic education programme to scholarship scheme children every afternoon. This enables the charity to support both the children who struggle most in the classroom and those from the poorest families.

SOS Africa’s Matt and Claudia have just returned from South Africa where they were supervising the project: “It is a proud moment for our grassroots charity – designing education centres which are fit-for-purpose enables us to increase the standard of education we can provide to our children.”

“It was a special moment when the doors of the brand-new education centre opened to our staff and children for the first time. This building will have an incredible impact on their development over the coming years.”

“We would like to thank everyone involved in the design and building process right through to the painting, decorating and cleaning; it has been a formidable team effort! A big thank you also to Dudley Rotary Club and our incredible support base here in Somerset for making this possible.”
