The smiles said it all! 645 children from different outreach programs gathered at our Picnic for lots of fun and play at Makhaza Wetlands Park on Wednesday.
Thanks to City of Cape Town Sports and Recreation for the Jumping Castle, face paints and the park itself, the Department of Social Development who came to witness this event, Tools for School for sponsoring close to 100 children, SISO members who sponsored another 80 children out of their own pockets, and all the stakeholders who participated including children, teachers and our fieldworkers.
You are always amazing!
Our Annual Celebration on Friday afternoon was a time of thanksgiving and song. Not only for all that has happened this year, but also for the people who serve day in and day out. For those who graduated from our programmes. For our amazing sponsors, faithful partners, kind donors, fantastic board and our good friends. We especially thank our God, who gives us strength, hope and a vision for what we do. As Sisi Thembi said, these children have been entrusted to us, and they are a gift that we care for, love, nurture and also celebrate. Halala!
