Mandela Day

18 July 2020

“One of the way we can build a better future for our children is by empowering them through allowing them to speak up for themselves. Of course, we as adults have to guide them and to take the ultimate responsibility but that is something quite different from patronising them. The rights of children must, importantly, include the right to be themselves and to talk for themselves.” – Nelson Mandela

Superhero Sunday

30 August 2020

Superheroes promote well-intentioned messages about standing up for peers and protecting others. Kids can also learn more about courage, self-sacrifice, self-control, and willpower.

We are planning a fun-filled day where the children’s role models can act as superheroes by conveying a message of hope through singing and dancing. Well-known artists like Neville D & Rouchelle Liedemann will be part of the superhero line-up.

  • Make a financial donation to make this day possible
  • Superhero costumes for children (between the ages of 2-18)
  • Superhero goodie bag containing chips, cool drink and sweets

Christmas/Back2School

November/December 2020

To focus on the gift of giving by mimicking the example showcased in the Word where gifts were brought to baby Jesus.

We want to make our children feel special by receiving a gift, but to also be aware of the deeper meaning of Christmas.

Stationary is a huge expenditure as our children are currently attending 39 different schools.

Supporting these campaigns will contribute to positively influence the behaviour of our children and to assist us to expand our skills development.

This is an ideal opportunity for corporates to do this as their CSI project.
