Purpose and activities of the Wild Ride Education Company (WREC)
WREC’s primary purpose is raise funds for educational purposes. Fund raising is reliant on donations by individuals, non-government trusts, benefactors and corporate South Africa.
These educational purposes specifically include building school classrooms, providing classroom infrastructure (desks, chairs, blackboards, toilets, ablutions, fencing and offices), and supplying teaching aids, including but not limited to blackboards, small libraries and teaching aids / materials.
The funds raised are used solely for these educational purposes. WREC has no administration costs and all work done by it’s directors and associates is on a volunteer basis. 100% of all funds raised by WREC are therefore channeled into the purpose.
The funds are deployed in communities in the Eastern Cape, and specifically along the section of this province generally known as the Wild Coast.
