The CommUnity Project team armed with their paint brushes and cleaning gear

It was a heart-warming sight to see how a few buckets of paint brought members of the community together to lend a helping hand to a Durban School for the Hearing Impaired in Amanzimtoti on Saturday, 21 July.

The school’s classrooms were in dire need of a clean-up and fresh coat of paint, fortunately members of the CommUnity Project and other locals were more than willing to reach out and give the classes a bit of a face-lift.

According to Paula Petersen, from the CommUnity Project, the initiative formed part of the CommUnity Project’s month-long community drive projects in the spirit of Mandela month. “We will be painting and cleaning seven classrooms within the junior section of the school over the next two weekends, making sure we do a good job in providing the students with a more appealing space to learn in. The educators from the school were very happy to hear that we would be coming to paint the classrooms and are looking forward to see the final product,” said Petersen.

She added by saying well done and thank you to all those who contributed in the initiative which was not only uplifting and saw people selflessly giving of their time and service to help those in need.
