We like to share our involvement with social development and education projects with our guests and offer them the opportunity to visit them.Guests can visit the children of our staff at the houses of their relatives in Tshiozwi. The children love showing their living environment and villages. Vhutsilo Mountain school is an interesting project to add a visit on our various tour programmes. Teachers, learners or volunteers show you around and give information about the work they are doing with children in various age groups and various programmes.
Vhutshilo Mountain school – peer educators supporting HIV positive children
Vhutshilo Mountain School started their school for AIDS orphans in a mobile-home with the enrollment of 3 orphans, one teacher and her loyal domestic worker. Now they have to school classes and monitor HIV+ children from 19 villages as part of the outreach program.
Vutshilo works with the local HIV Clinic. Children from the school also become role models and in turn become peer educators to support other HIV positive children so they can live free from stigma.
The school can be visited during our tours to Northern Venda. Guest are invited to support this project by sponsoring an orphaned child to provide balanced meals, clothing, medical assistance, schooling and a stimulating environment to grow up.
