Poverty and hopelessness is their daily reality . . . will you show them love?

Crèches like Noluthando Crèchein Samora Machel lack even the bare essentials – and face a struggle to survive every day.

Hunger, poverty and unemployment are a daily reality in this neighbourhood and young children are hardest hit. Parents can’t afford food – let alone school fees.

Please will you make your online donation here and give these young children a chance at a brighter future?

Principal Tobeka tries her best but with only a handful of parents paying school fees it’s becoming more and more difficult to provide for the 45 children in her care.

Sometimes a parent will give her a cabbage or some potatoes . . . that’s their way of trying to pay. But it’s not much help when there’s only one cot for the babies and a handful of mattresses for the children to sleep on.

Please make your donation here . . . the children’s interests – and safety – are at stake.

Not only will your contribution help us to buy crucial items like cots, mattresses and nappies. New government rulings mean that crèches must fulfil certain standards to qualify for subsidies for the children – and with your support Noluthando is sure to qualify in time.

Every cent counts so please will you make your pledge towards tables, chairs, mattresses, blankets, educational toys and food supplies? And if enough of our friends dig deep enough into their pockets we can assist with renovations and a fresh coat of paint too!

With your help we can make sure more children start their education on the right foot.

You can make you donation here.
