In this year 2022 we were able to receive a lot of school uniforms and we distributed them to the children in  schools at Sgagule village .It's really an honor for us that kids will put on their uniforms during this winter and stay warm.We are extremely thankful for all those who donated .we are hoping to get more uniform since there are lot of other schools in the village and it's our goal to make sure that every kid must have uniform so that they can stay at school and learn.

We would like to thank you again for your support that will help us change the lives of many underprivileged kids by providing them with education.

Kind regards 

The Nourish team

The end of the year is always busy, as we are busy planning for our Graduation at the Nourish RISE creche. Children in South Africa need a school uniform to go to Primary school, so even though government schools are free - without a uniform children cannot attend. And for many parents, especially now with Covid impacting jobs - the prices of the school uniforms is difficult to afford. So once of our focuses for our School uniform project is to support children that graduate preschool to make sure that they can continue their educational journey. So right now we are going up and down doing quotation of uniform in the stores. Each school has a different uniform, so this is lots of logistics, but the parents really appreciate the support, and it helps ensure the chidlren can go to school next year! Our little graduates are also practicing songs and dance moves for the big event ( it is very special for the parents to attend, and be so proud) we even made them traditional attire which they will wear on the graduation day. So we look forward to sharing with you the graduation photos and the little ones with their uniform which they will get soon! We are in planning and shopping phase now. 

 

Thank you all for your support! Your donations help us to enable and keep children in school through uniforms.

Nourish - growing resilience
Nourish - growing resilience

Hi to all our beautiful donors and supporters, 

 

We know that no one wants to get a report in which we say we have done nothing and spent nothing, but for the last few months, we have not been able to do much. We always want to say that we share our updates with 100% transparency, and so that is still true. That is why we want to be honest about the fact that we have not been able to buy school uniforms over the last few months. 

 

Part of the reason is that schools have been closed, and with Covid-19 regulations and South Africa school restrictions schools have been closed over a month. In addition, we often do a lot of the shopping ( and spending all your donor money ) in the beginning of the year and then later on in the year around the end of the year, as these are the period when children are registering for school, buying new uniforms and their families needing support for school uniforms, jerseys, or school shoes. 

 

So with schools shut and it being mid year and Covid, we have just let these few months slip past, focusing on providing support to the children when they come to Nourish, ensuring that at all times they have masks available, and providing more to those who need, ensuring we have tippy taps and can teach healthy habits and ensuring that the children can bring recycling to trade in our swop shop for sweets, or toys or little special items for themselves. 

 

Yes - we will do school uniforms again, and yes it is more important than ever and we look forward to sharing the pics with you when we DO buy them, but for now, we have had to keep adapting and have focused on health, wellbeing and resilience for our children. 

 

Thank you for being part of our journey and for your ongoing funding and support, each and every one of you.

Thanks to all your amazing support - we were able to sponsor 13 children with new school uniforms at the Nourish Creche Graduation. This enables these little ones to head off to school with confidence, as they continue their educational journey into Primary school. 

 

Each child's school uniform pack includes shirts, skirts (or trousers) socks, jersey and school shoes. This saves families spending a lot of money on purchasing the compulsory school uniform. Our heartfelt gratitude for making this possible - especially at a time when so many families are surviving on less money than every. Every cent saved, is money the family can spend on food, healthcare and survival. 

 

Thank you for supporting Nourish - and thank you for enabling education! You are all amazing. 

 

Thank you to Into My Wild Africa for being with us on the special graduation day, to capture the importance of this day for the children and their parents. And for the beautiful pics!

The last few months have been tough as we have not generated any donations for school uniforms, and we can understand why. The whole world is struggling under the weight of the changes of the COVID-19 pandemic and finances the world across are tough... 

 

So lacking the funds to enable us to buy children school uniforms and jerseys we, as Nourish, have continued to try to provide resilience and support for children in any way we can. And this has been through continuing to focus on food and hygiene. 

 

Growing spinach in our gardens at Nourish for the children to take home to their families, and suporting local primary schools with masks for their learners, as the government provided PPE has run out months ago. This is our way to help keep children safe and healthy. 

 

We thank you all for supporting in the past, and if you can continue to supoprt us in future, THANK YOU. The children need uniforms now more than ever as families are struggling just to make ends meet financially, and to have enough money for food... so now more than ever families will appreciate the support of a school uniform ( including MASK) for their children! 

 

Take care, stay safe, and thank you
