For schools which support themselves like The GHC school in sewage/Matopeni slum, engaging in income generating activities is the only way towards SUSTAINABILITY. YOUR support is needed to achieve this!
The GHC school has continued to grow against all the challenges that have threatened its existence.It has continued to be a CENTRE of hope for many Bright-needy and worthy students.With very meager resources, the centre has made tremendous progress towards self sufficiency.
The green house project is seen as one of the milestone steps towards this. The Management has set up several strategies to see the school attain a sustainable status. We are currently seeking funding to engage in a medium scale FISH production.
The fact that GHC is a small Community Based organization That supports school going children from poor families has not not negated its impact in achieving its GOALS and Objectives.
As we grow we have continued to face lots of CHALLENGES and EXPERIENCE on countering /solving them. Getting funds for our projects is one major challenge, Volunteers is another one since we cannot be able to pay staff.But as we move on we are slowly moving from nothing to something.OUR tomatoes project to generate income has been partly successful. The tomatoes in the open field were greatly damaged by the heavy .This has made lots of loses and hence reduction in gains from the green house. The impact of the heavy rains was minimal on the green house. We hope the the losses made can be balanced with the gains from the green house.WE hope that engaging in many different income generating activities will reduce risks on losses and enhance our sustainability.
We are looking forward to our friends, partners, and wekll wishers to link us, support us and inspire us towards making our community a prosperous community and a better olace to live, work, invest and enjoy.

Min asked that the following update be posted on his behalf:
"Now we are running three projects; Friday celebration program for children, compound wall and Income generation program for poor parents so that they can regular their children in school. day meal is being very effective because students involve in different community as well as school base program and they stay till 4 o clock in Friday. Students are more responsible and they are aware about their school life. The cleaner school, managed classroom, involved parents are major achievements after partnership with Nabuur."
