Tugela Ferry - Msinga - Muden Adventure - Rural Skills Development - Job Creation

The Kwazulu-Natal Department of Public Works has undertaken a school sanitation project to construct new toilet blocks for male and female, grade R learners and teachers in the Umzinyathi District Municipality located within the Kwazulu-Natal province.

Various schools were identified within the Muden, Tugela Ferry and Msinga areas for geotechnical investigation studies. The Ramgoolam Group together with Naidu Consulting Engineers have requested Geotechnical Solutions (Pty) Ltd to carry out geotechnical investigation studies for selected schools.

Here is our Adventure...




Tugela Ferry is a town on the northern bank of the Tugela River, in central KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. During the apartheid era it formed part of the KwaZulu homeland, and at present it is included in the Umzinyathi District Municipality....

Schools included:

The Stories were endless and the little learners provided us with tons of comfort and warmth. Clean Drinking Water remains a problem as most schools and learners have none. The delivery of water is totally reliant on water trucks which seem to speed past the schools with little consideration for the children.





Emkhuphula Learners with the most stories... There are Zero to No Maths and Science Teachers.






The areas are deep rural and forgotten by the big city politicians....
The schools and areas are lacking electricity, water, roads and sanitation...
