Everseason

  • Roof Covering (Paardekop) – Twenty five to thirty five children from Everseason’s farm workers attend Paardekop Primary (the nearby school that serves the children from Everseason’s production units). This project will ensure that most of the workers from the different units will benefit from the project funds, and it will be a good way to start the relationship with The Waitrose Foundation. The school has 7 classrooms with open-air stairs which is used as an amphitheatre and assembly venue in the absence of a school hall. Shading this area will benefit the children in winter and summer.
