of Village Heights,
The City of Cape Town has adopted Village Heights for a legacy community project, as part of the World Capital Design 2014.
Individual members from Zandvlei Trust are assisting Bernie with the registration of an NPO. She is also being assisted to obtain a telephone line, so that the library can one day have an internet connection. The children need this facility for homework and gaining more information knowledge for themselves. Once the NPO is registered, Zandvlei Trust members will assist with administration, banking and communication skills training on a voluntary basis.
