The Sozo Foundation was founded in 2011 by Anton and Elana Cuyler to address the problems of hunger, homelessness and poor educational attainment by local youngsters. The citizens of Vrygrond face daily challenges of gangsterism, crime and drug abuse.
Sozo has raised over £150,000 to fund the new youth education centre, which is designed to create a conducive learning environment.
The Little Thermodynamic Box is a solar assisted heat pump which will produce hot water to the building day and night.
“We are happy to be a part of this project and are looking forward to the completion of the centre,” said The Magic Thermodynamic Box Company’s marketing director, Alex Basile.
“People in the area are suffering financially and academically so we want to help as much as we can.”
