Most people in Jeffrey’s Bay noticed all the activities in Ocean View at the Kings College primary School the past week or so! In January, Victory4All started building the second phase of their massive building project. This phase will be a mirror image of the first phase. Phase three will be the admin block, extra classrooms and the movie house. The forth phase will be the indoor sport hall / school hall at the back of the school. Last week 7 handymen from the Netherlands arrived in Jeffrey’s Bay for 12 days! They came with the mandate to bless the newly built primary school King’s College with two watchtowers and some playgrounds for the children. For 6 months, they raised the needed funds to buy their flight tickets as well as all the materials for the playgrounds etc. The 7 men Jacob Vooys, Arie de Mol, Dirk van der Laar, Simon Wind, Ruud Briegoos, Gijs Bakker, and Gertjan van den Oever were assisted by the two maintenance people Arie Strootman and Dirk in’t Veld from V4All. Three other Dutch people, Derk Oosterveld, Tim Bakker, and Laura Kaasenbrood helped with the marketing and fundraising of this project. The Victory4All project in Jeffrey’s Bay was founded on May 1, 2003 by Johan and Astrid Vos from the Netherlands – nearly 15 years ago. From day one, Johan & Astrid promoted V4All projects through the whole of the Netherlands. Now, 15 years later, it is a well-known name in the Netherlands and hundreds of private people as well as businesses support and pray for this project.
