I am a grade 1 teacher. Our school is a rural school in Stellenbosch and has a huge financial dilemma, they already cut teachers salaries with 25% after this Covid pandemic we all deal with.
I prayed about the school and how dirty it is. It is a mess and discuss to go as a lady to the restroom. The toilets are super dirty and everyone normally will get bladder infections.

I was so excited just to try lift the atmosphere at school and everyone being scared to be back at work again that I just wanted to do a project with Tjhoko paint and show everyone the amazing paint and what can be done with paint.

Now everyone can’t wait to go take a pieps­čĄ¬ and the atmosphere truly lifted. What an amazing change. I am so glad I chose to do this. I took a big chance. Had NO funds, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from painting with Tjhoko paints. With not lot of extra helping hands it turned out to be an breathtaking experience! Just love using the stencil on the tiles, glaze over and what an amazing difference. The doors wont show dirt easily and with handpainted pictures it lifts the atmosphere to a delightful place to be. Look even the toiletholders at the back is painted… everything can be painted when you use Tjhoko paint!
