We employ and give housing to 20 families on the farm. We aim to positively raise the standard of living and uplift the local community on an ongoing basis. Generations of our employees and their children have been educated by Zeekoegat Primary.
Zeekoegat Primary currently schools 120 primary children and 90 pre-primary children and has been open since 1938.
De Zeekoe-trust long term goal is to rebuild the whole school, seeing that the school building has become unsafe and unstable. The trust was formed by the adjoining landowners of Safari Ostrich Show Farm. The trust's main aim is to raise funds for the new school project.
