Projects in Africa

Inkamana High School

The Inkamana High School is in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is attached to the Benedictine Abbey, one of the houses of the St Ottilien Congregation.  It currently has 200 boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18, all in boarding houses.

Despite its excellent academic record and its first-class choir, it struggles to provide adequate resources in a rural area plagued by poverty. Priority needs include renovation of the school hall, creating a proper playing field, purchasing a minibus and shelter for it, acquiring some second-hand computers and extending the range of books in the library.

The Douai Foundation has helped to purchase wash lines in the boys and girls hostels as well as new wash tubs in the boys hostel.

Ndanda School of Nursing

Ndanda school of nursing is based in Tanzania and  is part of St Benedict’s Ndanda Referral Hospital. The school provides training for diplomas in nursing and midwifery and aims to address the shortage of human resource for health in the country.

The Douai Foundation made a grant of £1,500 which has funded three computers for the Ndanda School of Nursing.

‘We are very thankful to you for providing us with computers which will help us provide our students with technical education, which is a must in present times.’
