The Ibhabhathane Community Centre has had the mostextroadinary 3 months! Despite no government funding the centre could stillcontinue paying wages to its staff members, take our children to their firsttheatre production, which was absolutely wonderful and buy art materials tocontinue our latest project; Pretty Things for Little Things. The lastmentioned project is engaging community members in sharing their skills withthe elderly in the village. During this exercise the participants are learningto cut and sew aprons for our little ones, which is much needed duringdeliciously messy art activities as well as making 35 book bags for librarybooks to go home on a weekly basis as part of a literature programme toencourage our parents to read books to their toddlers.
A brand new gas oven and stove has add to our nutritionprogramme significantly. We can now offer our children a variety of yummy bakedand cooked dishes. Our Friday cooking session has seen baked ‘clever catbiscuits and cheerful cupcakes for Father’s Day.
Our progress and continual improvement on service deliveryis thanks to people like our Global Giving donors, who cares about the lives of children andunderstands how important stimulation and nutrition are during these earlyyears of human development.
Please continue the good work. Don’t hesitate to donate, no matter how big or smallin order to help the Ibhabhathane build people’s capacity to discover theirpotential.
Our sincere thanks for your generosity and support.
