WHAT OUR IMMEDIATE NEEDS ARE NOW:
School will be starting it's winter session soon. We will ensure that, R50,000 will go a long way to help provide:
Breakfast and lunches (brainfood)

HOW WE SUPPORT OUR CHILDREN AND THE COMMUNITY:
Recently, we organized an Amazing Race Fundraiser to help provide much needed blankets for something as simple as a warm, full nights sleep. For only R250/$20/18EUR each, the fundraiser helped us provide just that for 41 children and families. Can you think of a better use for that minimal amount of money?

Back to School Project
Back to school project is a project we have always run particularly at the start of the year, as there is always such a need for assistance at the beginning of the year when schools begin and children need uniform and stationary. Of course nearer the winter there is also a need to ensure that children have a school jersey or a track suit/tracksuit top. Shoes are an ongoing item of clothing that children need support with. If you would like to kit out a child or assist in kitting out part of a child’s uniform please feel free to contact us. Passing on second hand school clothing is also very helpful. Generally a white collared shirt and grey longs is the standard uniform in our Mpumalanga region.
Drop in Centres (Woodhouse, Phakama and Buhle Besive)
The Drop in centres are designed to feed children on a daily basis from Monday to Friday. We require a basic nutritious meal for approximately 205 school going children. In this way we are certain that children remain healthy and have the ability to function fully in their school life without feeling the effects of hunger such as fatigue, poor health and nausea. This project can be adopted by anyone wishing to provide any food no matter how big or small. Basic foods required for this are: fresh vegetables, maize meal, stock powder, tomatoes, onions packet soups, rice, chicken, meat, dry beans ( great source of protein) and cordial and then tea, milk and sugar for the winter months.
