“The donations will go towards our programmes, either improving them resource-wise or adding new initiatives,” said Ward.

“This includes new games, crafts, art and creativity for our child and youth development programmes, helping to kit out our new classrooms, such as a grade R-1 children’s interactive play place, adding resources to other programmes like crafting or nail painting and so on for our new ‘gogo’ support group.

Petrol cards will help for our school outreach programme and health-related home visits.

We can resource our sewing training programme, so learners have material to practice what they learn.

Donations like paint, plants, building supplies vouchers and so on will go towards renovations for our property expansions and securing our property.”
