Under Four Trees: Khulani Special SchoolPosted, July 12, 2012 .
Khulani Special School in rural South Africa, provides disabled children a place where they receive education, food, clothing, and love. Thoko Nxumalo was asked by the community to be the Principal and agreed despite the lack of a school building, so Khulani Special School began under trees and a tarp for classrooms. With the help of community members, about 30 children were located who had been kept at home, some to attend school for the first time. This clip shows us the School and Thoko on a home visit to check on Nokolo, who has cerebral palsy. Success has grown enrollment to over 150 students with a waiting list of 80 more children. Programs include primary school subjects adapted to special needs children with a long term aim to teach children to be as self-sufficient and independent as their individual conditions will permit.
“Our mission is to provide a holistic learning environment where we value the uniqueness of each learner.”
