Fundraising project for funds to help children from underprivileged situations to attend the school, in Howick, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
This is an ongoing project - help raise funds by purchasing a bronze leaf, mild steel leaf or a resin flower to add to the tree. http://www.thembelihleschool.co.za/act/funding/
The mild steel leaves are only R250 each. R2500 for the bronze leaf with your name engraved into it, or Resin flower R1000. But really anything will help so have a look at the link for more information and payment methods.

The Tree is based on an Erythrina Lysistemon - common in KZN and special to the Zulu people. Wonderful red flowers and a distinctive leaf shape. With red seeds known to children as as lucky beans. Read more about this Erythrina and the Zulu culture.
