Mr Puley, the Acting Principal of Eureka primary, remembers being in Grade 1 in the school where he has taught for over 27 years. He returned to Noupoort after his studies and will never leave, despite the harsh economic conditions. His dream is to empower the children of Noupoort and encourage entrepreneurship so that they can revive local industry. All this starts with the basics of schooling – Maths and Literacy.
During construction the Noupoort Wind Farm has enhanced the Eureka library, replaced over 40 roofs in the community, upgraded the Zingisani creche playground and provided educational materials and bedding for the Chumani daycare.
