Our beloved Pat has been with the Green Elephant Backpackers family since the very beginning-- nearly 20 years! Ma Pat needs a space to call home so the Ele team has been actively investigating the best housing options for her new grounds in Khayelitsha. We are collaborating with Ikhayalami, a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to help upgrade informal settlements affordably.
Pat needs to raise at least R10 000!
At the moment we've calculated costs at R10,000. This includes the construction of one unit with the following materials:
- 0.5mm thick clip-lok galvanized zinc
- 1 double window
- Roof of 0,3mm thick
- 1 external door
- Anchoring of the shelter into the ground with cement
Pat is taking a well-deserved holiday to go back home to the Eastern Cape and will be away for most of September. During this time, we would love for her to return to a new nest, so we are launching a one month campaign (23 August to 23 September) to encourage funds and helping hands for our "Pat's Shack" Project.
