Lobethal Mission Primary school is a rural school. It is in Limpopo Province, north of Gauteng. The children come from poor families. Some of the children walk over three miles to get to the school. Among them there are those who cross a river far from the nearest bridge. So they do not go to school when the river is full.
WFTISA sends donated clothes for the needy children. The school receives books and toys to start a library. Some of the children have never owned books or toys
