Project Kagiso is an idea spearheaded by the Nottingham University School of Architecture to rebuild a nursery in a rural village in the Letsitele Valley in Limpopo, northern South Africa. “Kagiso” is a Sotho name which means “let’s build together” but is also generally used to mean “peace”. The local language Sepedi is a dialect of Sotho, which is spoken throughout the area.
A total of £36000 was raised by the students to meet expenses for materials, with over 90% of funds spent on materials, tools, subcontracted works and project logistics associated with daily transport to the site. The project was completed in four weeks.
