Royal Drakensberg

Royal Drakensberg is an independent school that provides education to the surrounding poor areas. The school caters for Grade 0 to Grade 3, providing the necessary grounding for children to reach their maximum potential. Royal Drakensberg believe that there is a great need for holistic education of a world class standard in the Drakensberg Rural area. Conditions in these areas are poor and the teachers lack resources and infrastructure. They feel that an established independent school, which is properly staffed and managed, will go a long way to giving children the necessary grounding to reach their maximum potential. The school was opened in 2007.

Heartlands is a registered Child and Youth Care Centre and a Community Mental Health Facility. The centre provides holistic care for between 20 to 25 orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) from birth to six years of age. Children are temporally placed with a court order after which the child is either reunited, placed in foster care, and /or adopted. In rare circumstances a child can be placed in another institution if long term care is needed. Parents are educated to be better equipped in caring for their children, once reunited and back at home. In fact they were about to close their doors if funding was not received from CSI initiatives like ourselves.
