Charity Information

Our mission is to provide a safe environment in challenged and vulnerable communities where we develop emotionally well rounded Children and Youth who make positive life choices and become contributing members of society.

Reaching over 2000 youngsters every day, the programmes are having a very positive effect on the youth as well as the communities in which they live. The Foundation currently operates 5 after school care centres including Nyanga, Gugulethu, Manenberg and Crossroads, and each hosting over 300 students per day. We provide educational and cultural activities that offer students healthy alternatives to all the negative influences within their society, unlock their creative talent and create future emotionally well rounded individuals, leaders and entrepreneurs for South Africa.

Programmes run Monday to Thursday and a sandwich meal is offered daily to each child. These programmes include after school care, music, HIV / AIDS peer education, greening and environment, literacy, creative arts, drama & dance, sport, and computer literacy.

PERIOD PROJECT

Charity Information

“On average a young woman on school can miss up to 70 days of school per annum when on a menstrual cycle and then needs to work ten times harder than her male counterparts. The purpose of this project is to help lay the foundation for our young South African woman to achieve their dreams by giving them the opportunity to complete school uninterrupted because they do not have access to a basic necessity, such as affordable sanitary towels.

This project is not just about ensuring our young women have access to affordable sanitary wear, but offers opportunities of interest (when they arise) for them to participate in.

To date this project has been able to supply approximately 2000 young women in Grade 12 with a year’s supply of sanitary towels, supported the Hout Bay informal settlement fire victims, the Knysna fire victims and the Cape Town storm homeless victims.

Not only will you be helping our young women to not miss school, but you are helping them to feel confident and giving them a chance at a brighter future.

This project is not aligned to any political party and is here for the benefit of all our young ladies wishing to complete school. Sanitary Towels should be free for all learners -PERIOD”

Charity Information

The aim of Project Dignity is to reduce absenteeism and dropout rates in schools and increase opportunities for girls to complete their education with dignity.

There are 7 000 000 school girls in South Africa who don’t have access to sanitary pads as they cannot afford them. Most girls are from child headed homes where there is no one to talk to and educate them on sexual health.

Through Project Dignity we give the girls the basic education they deserve. Their dignity is kept intact and we empower them to be the best they can. We grow their self-esteem by educating them on their bodies and sexual rights.
