No room for learners: parents start school in tent

Hundreds of Mfuleni parents brought their children to a tent in a field in Bardale which is used as a school. Photo by Mary-Anne Gontsana.

The makeshift school started yesterday. Volunteers, which included trainee teachers as well as people from the Mfuleni community who wanted to help, did the teaching. It was a bit chaotic as a large part of the morning was spent registering the students.
