Nkomo Primary School

Nkomo Primary School is situated in the rural community of Mduku on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The school started in 1998 with 60 children and one teacher (Themba Zikhali). At that time, there were no classrooms, so teaching and learning took place under the trees. The school currently educates more than 900 children, has 24 teachers, 8 support staff, 17 classrooms and an Orphans and Vulnerable Children’s (OVC) center. Through the generous support of its partners, is has been able to add many other facilities to serve the needs of the children. This leadership and dedication has not gone unnoticed: Nkomo Primary was identified as a role model in its region and was upgraded to a Full Service School in order to accommodate disabled children from the communities.
