Mandela Day

July

“There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to helping others without expecting anything in return.” – Nelson Mandela

For Mandela Day we require support with:
1) Non-perishable food items
2) Tekkie campaign

The month of July reminds us of freedom, hope, confidence, and integrity – especially with the focus on Mandela Day.

We, at Durbanville Children’s Home, are planning a tekkie campaign where we would like to present each child with a new pair of tekkies. Shoes are symbolic of many things such as confidence and pride, and a new pair of tekkies will do just that!

#OurEasterDream

April

The story of Easter is surely one of the most beautiful stories of grace and love that we can teach our children. That Jesus Christ died for us and that we can celebrate his resurrection. We ask that you please remember our children and the Children’s Home in your prayers.

It is important that our children realize the true meaning of this season, but at the same time we believe that they should also partake in the fun thereof.

As winter is slowly approaching, we welcome donations of:

  • Winter pajamas (all sizes from aged 2 – 18)
  • Slippers (all sizes)
  • Winter socks (all sizes)
  • Beanies
  • Easter eggs, chocolates, marshmallows, hot chocolate

It has been estimated that almost 800 million people in the world do not have enough food to eat. This is quite a staggering figure. Celebrating sustainable solutions to hunger and poverty is the aim of this day.

  • #GiveItUp focuses on the willingness to sacrifice your meal expenses for the day and to donate it to the Durbanville Children’s Home

Christmas/Back2School

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.

Corporates can accumulate value BBEEE points and an 18A certificate.
