On the 6th of January 2011, the community of the Rooigrond Informal Settlement once more united and for our Project: Clean-up.

The roads used by learners to go to school are filled with bushes and trees which make the area unsafe for them, as they can’t be seen, when walking through there. To combat this, we mobilised the community for what we call, Project: Clean-up. This project would ensure that the bushes, trees and everything else considered to be hazardous would be cleaned up.

The entire community assisted with this and entire families came out in their numbers. Women, children and men all played their part and so much was done. The local school, Madiba Combined School, was also cleaned up.

Parents came in their numbers and the school yard, toilets and classrooms, were also cleaned as part of Project: Clean-up. The entire project was a great success due to the unified effort of the community. Once more, they showed the power of unity and the safety of our children was the reward.
