WHO I AM
My name is Venessa. I am a single mum with a dream and a vision and I am hoping to make that dream a reality!
I have a passion for empowering children and young adults. I love children and truly believe that good foundations can make a huge difference in their lives.
THE URGENT NEED
I live in Phoenix Durban, a township North of the city centre. It is a multicultural melting pot and home to a diverse spectrum of people
The immediate vicinity is known for being a low income area with parents struggling daily to make ends meet.
Drugs are rife and children grow up with it daily.
Unemployment is also rife as parents cannot afford to leave kids in a daycare in order to go to work.
After school kids can be found playing on the roads or corners because of the lack of supervision
Yes this is the reality of their lives.
MY VISION AND DREAM
My dream and goal is to start a daycare and after from my home which is affordable to parents and will allow them to leave their children in a safe environment whilst they work to support their families.
Holiday programs and after school care will help keep the children safe and off the streets.
I plan to have these programs on a regular basis to uplift and empower these children and their families
My daycare/ aftercare will be affordable, yet a safe home away from home, and I will as we grow, employ people from the area as assistants, creating employment as well
It is a huge dream and a huge vision, but it can change so many lives here and I believe that I can make a difference.
