Eileen and Larry Kugler volunteer
in A.V. Bukani Primary School
in rural South Africa to improve literacy through professional development for the teachers and family engagement programs. Their daughter Sara has joined them on several trips. In 2010 they created a school library of 23,000 books which impacts the entire community. They returned in 2015 for their 5th trip. Contributions through the Kugler Education Fund at South Africa Partners support this wonderful school and community.
Thanks to your generous donations, we are sending 45 wonderful picture books, written by South African authors, in English and Xhosa to A.V. Bukani school for read-alouds, a critical part of language development.
We are so appreciative of all the interest in and support for this wonderful school. We have great news for future donations. We have forged an alliance with South Africa Partners to create a fund that can be used for a wide variety of needs at A.V. Bukani Elementary, not just books. South Africa Partners has 501(c)3 status in the U.S. so all donations are tax-deductible. SA Partners takes a very small administrative fee (5%!). Since S.A. Partners supports numerous projects, it is important that you note on the check that it is for the "Kugler Family Fund." S.A Parters will let us know who made donations.
if you would like to support A.V. Bukani Elementary, please:
Write check to:
"South Africa Partners" with "Kugler Family Fund" in the memo.
South Africa Partners 89 South Street, Suite 701 Boston, MA 02111
Thanks to the special family that sent $1000 instead of giving each other Christmas gifts this year!!
