Time’s running out  . . . tomorrow may be
too late!

If you’ve already made your online donation to show the hundreds of destitute children we work with that you’re committed to their future . . . despite the cruel life they’re born into – thank you so much.

But if you’re yet to, please will you do so here?

You see, only our friends make it possible for these vulnerable children to beat the odds stacked against them.

Born into the shadow of poverty, education’s their only hope for a better life. And your donation here will give them a future filled with hope.

Right now, Ithemba crèche’s in dire need of windows, roof tiles, paint and building materials to complete construction – and Forever Educare needs proper plumbing to supply fresh drinking water – along with tables, chairs and stationery.

Please make your contribution today and help transform rickety, informal pre-schools into shiny beacons of hope in their communities.

Your donation here will help more children escape a life of poverty . . .  please be as generous as you can!

Thank you and God bless.
