Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is involved in the community by helping a local underprivileged primary farm school. The children in the school come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Some children come to school just to get out of their environment into an environment where they can play and feel safe. The children need simple “everyday” supplies such as meals, toiletries, and clothes.
We donate what is needed at the school (e.g. stationery, toiletries, cleaning supplies and much more) we are also in the process of building a jungle gym where they can play. We are also involving a social worker to assist in the assessment of children and to support teachers and children in general.
The teachers at the school have a very small income. The teachers must drive long distances to get to the school and a large portion of their monthly salary goes towards getting them to school.
