First Aid Course donated by Susara!

A huge THANK YOU to young Susara, who raised the money for this First Aid course at her 4th birthday party! Now 120 children at the Likhona Ithemba ECD Center in Mfuleni benefit from the empowerment of their care givers. Thanks to her Mum Jenna Sue for organizing*

Welcome Jacqui!

We welcome Jacqui in our team!
As a qualified Community Worker and Educational Professional, Jacqui works closely with our partnering ECD Centers and provides  educational as well as psychological support to the children and their social environment.

 

Extension of INJONGO

Due to the large amount of children the INJONGO Educare Center accommodates daily, we decided to extend the playspaces. Together with parents and care givers, we planned the process of converting one other shipping container for now, installing it on site and painting it for the use of the kids.

A second container will follow soon, as well as the roofs and the beautification of the outdoor spaces.

A great Christmas contribution!

On Christmas eve the Organisation “Stalltür-auf e.V.” performed the traditional nativity play in Willich in the crowded chapel of St. Bernhard. Thanks to the enormous generosity of all visitors the amount of 1.600 € was collected for the upliftment of the children’s environment in Mfuleni.

We wanna thank the actors as well as those visitors for their amazing support!

Alive and kickin’

Let yourself be inspired by the joy of living in the South African township Mfuleni!
