Tsakane Special School

One of only a few schools in the area supporting children with disabilities, Tsakane Special School was opened in 2015 and accommodates over 160 children with special educational needs. It is a thrill to be able to teach art to these talented children. Presently we offer one art class a week here and hope to expand this program soon.

Twenty students with disabilities now participate in the weekly Art and Creativity program. We hope the immediate benefits, such as having a boost in self-confidence, an outlet to express their rich internal world, an increased self-esteem and a new sense of acceptance and inclusion, will give way to a greater freedom for the children and youth to participate more fully in formal schooling and other opportunities offered to them.
