Handouts which promote Education

Since 2017 we have been impacting on education in local high and primary schools in the area:

i.  Sanitary pad handouts for the entire year to almost 300 girls at Mapetla High School.

ii.  Washable sanitary pads to over 50 girls at Protea South Primary School.

iii.  Menstrual cups to over 50 girls at Sekano Ntoane Secondary School.

iv.  Over 500 pairs of school shoes and socks handed out to pupils at Khotso Primary School, Sedibathuto High Primary    School, Mapetla High School and Megatong Primary School .

v.  Select items of school uniform for desperate children.

vi.  Saturday morning extra maths lessons at Mapetla High School

vii.  Saturday morning experiential maths program at Sekano Ntoane High School, as well as life skills program.

viii.  In 2020 the Noah Project (maths and life skills) will run at Glenridge Primary School, 200 children from grades 4 and 5 will participate.

 

OUR IMPACT:

  • R48000 ($3358) worth of sanitary pads, as well as menstrual cup handout, washable sanitary towels handout
  • R1 520 000 ($106090,13) for extra maths and life skills tutoring
  • R100000 ($7000) for school shoes
  • R60000 ($4197) for socks
  • We have positively impacted on the morale of all involved: learners, schools, parents/caregivers, teachers, and Soweto Department of Education.

 

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

A million thanks to everyone who has donated so far to the handout next Tuesday to hundreds of starving people. We have R32000 which will buy a nutritious and enriched ePap meal a day for 534 adults for 3 weeks (maybe the length of the extension of our lockdown?). e'Pap Technology contains much of the vitamins and goodness that we need to keep us going through the day.
Thank you to Rose Grealy Kransdorff of ePap who has been so kind and generous.
We also have vegetable packs being handed out by Khanyi Chaba, grateful thanks to her.
Amanda TMathebula has organised the handout, from ward councillor to the recreation centre and beneficiaries. She is a phenomenon.
The beneficiaries all live in Eldorado Park. They are from the overcrowded flats in the area, as well as shacks all around. Elderly grandmothers who look after scores of grandchildren have been invited, as have families who live in shacks in the vicinity. Shack dwellers from nearby Kliptown(very poverty stricken suburb) have also been invited. We are waiting for the final tally of donations and tomorrow morning we can place the order with ePap. The more that comes in, the more we can feed from Kliptown.
You out there are simply amazing. Thank you, and sleep easier knowing that 534+ people will be fed during this disastrous time.

I cannot stand the hunger out there anymore. I need to go hand out in the squatter camp.The poor have started only eating mielie pap again, they are not buying meat, chicken or dairy anymore. Those images of the gogo’s and their multitude of grandchildren living in such poverty,who go hungry every night.

I would like to organise sachets of ePap ( fortified food) which I will hand out to my community of squatter residents. This at least will give them adequate nutrition.
I need a substantial amount to hand out though, one cannot arrive in an area of desperate starving people and only give a few. My safety will be in danger. I hope to hand out parcels for 4 family members.

Tonight we begin lockdown for 21 days to try stop the virus from spreading. I worry about the families who are on top of one another up in one roomed shacks. How can they not get irritated and frustrated. I worry about the animal neglect because many are not working for 21 days and cannot feed their families, let alone pets. I worry about cruelty in general. May we succeed in halting the spread to a population who are immunocompromised and have inadequate nutrition. May there just be a merciful God up there.
