Cultivating a green oasis for community wellness and education.
The Langalibalele Forest, a project aimed at creating a lush green space, will be situated in the Cultural Hub of Langa Township on the shared sports field of Siyabulela Primary and Langa High School.
This initiative is set to benefit not only the two schools but also the wider community. The Forest will offer numerous advantages such as enhancing mental health and wellbeing, providing essential shade, and promoting wildlife habitat restoration.
Furthermore, it will offer outdoor classroom’s spaces for teachers to use during the summer season for natural science and biology subjects. Currently, the site is utilized for sports and recreation activities, but it is also subject to illegal dumping.
Why The Langalibalele Forest?
This project is named The Langalibalele Forest in honor of a chief and renowned rainmaker.
Who in 1873 was imprisoned on Robben Island for rebelling against the Natal government/English imperialism.
