Township school


Most of the tour operators doing township tours in Port Elizabeth support a school or other worthwhile project by visiting them on the tour and contributing to them financially. One of the schools visited by probably the biggest township tour operator in the city, Calabash Tours, is the New Brighton Primary School. On the visit to the school the visitors get taken through some of the classes to see the kids work before having tea and being told how they could support the school as well. Through visits like this quite a few tourists has committed themselves to sponsoring a child's education or by sending much needed goods to the different projects run by the Calabash Trust.

  4. Hello Yonker,

    may I suggest that you also tell about Zama? As far as I know, Zama helps with food and afternoon activities - every day.
