The aim of the Perivoli Schools Trust is to support the education of nursery school children in Namibia. The Trust is a registered charity in Namibia established by the Perivoli Trust which is a Mauritian domiciled Trust established by a UK based individual, James Alexandroff.
The Trust recognises that learning through play is the basis of all learning, particularly for children under the age of six. Unfortunately the vast majority of children in Namibia have very little playtime experience.
The Perivoli Teacher Training Programme is interactive, practical, fun and includes a body image module.
The Perivoli Teacher Training Programme is making a difference in Mariental.

Our mission is to transform the prospects of children in poor communities by showing nursery school teachers how to stimulate their young charges by using simple everyday waste materials as teaching aids. We believe, as we explain in this website, that our approach is scalable, sustainable and affordable.
Many of our Teachers are now running Parent Workshops. This one Teacher in Okahau has her Parents making their own resource boxes, with small books, bottle tops, and other educational materials — Fantastic.
We are about to start new Programmes in Oshana Region, in Rundu and in Omaruru.
We are still looking for people who can commit to facilitating Modules, run Support Groups and do Class Support, to be Trainers in this future Programme.
