A new bus will mean so
much . . . so please make your donation right away!

If you’ve already made your online donation toward Our WIN (Women in Need) Playhouse on the outskirts of Cape Town... thank you so much.

The 25 youngsters aged between four and six that go to school here are homeless... and this crèche is their only stability in life.

But our once-trusty minibus – with more than 200 000 kilometres on the clock – is too old and rickety! And there’s no other way for these children to get to us.

That’s why if you’re yet to make your donation towards buying a new school bus – please do so here. Without our bus these youngsters have no other choice but stay at ‘home’ – under a dingy bridge.

Please will you make your online donation here right away?

Every donation we receive will move us one step closer to buying a new school bus for the children... and many steps away from disaster.

So if you agree that every child deserves the chance for a happy and safe childhood, please make your donation toward a new vehicle here.
