Education and Development

As an essential pillar of any community, the Pumba Foundation has two core focuses, Early Childhood Development and Primary School projects.

The formation and establishment of the Seven Fountains Creche has been a main focus of the Foundation from Day 1. The construction of a brand new Creche structure has enabled an initial capacity of 25 children who will be taught by an officially qualified Early Childhood Development teacher. This capacity has the ability to be increased to 50 children as the Creche develops. The second focus is that of the existing Masakane Primary School, which currently has 95 children. Projects that have been introduced focus on areas such as art, storytelling, sport, conservation education and a bursary scheme that assists in providing school uniforms and other essentials.
