Ubuhle is a school in Bronkhorstspruit (Gauteng) that caters for the vulnerable leaners in the area. The government withdrew its support which presented an opportunity to get involved with financial support, building, craft and community projects to ensure the effective and safe operation of the school. Our annual fundraiser mountain bike ride namely “JackalBerry Challenge” has been a great success and added significant fiscal to ensure the management is able to develop the school for the needs of the learners (www.jackalberrychallenge.co.za). We have played a part in giving these underprivileged learners a brighter future.
