  • Greene Glen Preparatory Academy says:

    Most of the schools that have better facilities and educational equipments opportunities for children in South Africa are in the cities. For children whose families cannot afford being in better schools stayed in the underprivileged, overcrowded public schools at the rural areas. Therefore Greene Glen Preparatory Academy will begin the implementation of quality education to rural areas in Limpopo Province of South Africa; as the founding member I am tremendously passionate about education and it’s been my dream to bring virtuous education to the rural side of Limpopo and contribute to the development of the society. The only obstacle is lack of funding to build the school. My hope is that you will be able to help me in funding Greene Glen Preparatory Academy to change these underprivileged children’s lives for better and be productive citizens.
