Through this project we have been able to continue the work that we do to support creches in the underprivileged areas of our city. We provide these creches with soup kitchen ingredients weekly that enables them to cook for their children. Many of these children come from homes where parents are unemployed.
Along with feeding these children, over the last few months we have been able to bless many of them with pencil cases and blankets, which are basic needs that a lot of the creches we support don't have.
In the month ahead we will be blessing the children at all our creches with Christmas parcels, including stationery, toys, lunch boxes etc. as a gift for the holiday season.
We have had an exciting few months finishing up our creche revamp project at Green Apple Pre-school in the underprivileged area of Kwazakele, Port Elizabeth. This school has 180 children and is run by Jessie, who has given her life to running this school and serving her community. To see more of Jessie's story please follow the link to watch documentary:
This project was started on a piece of land near Jessie's house, which was being used as the school. We have been able to bless them with 3 conainer classrooms, paved/roofed area for outside play and activities, jungle gym, toilets, bikes, fencing to keep them safe and are still to purchase desks and chairs for their new classrooms.
This project was completed in partnership with RAM Spreaders and we hope to complete many more such projects in the future.
