Dear Supporters, 


I am so excited that after many months of active fundraising, promotion and talking to people across South Africa we have enough cash and resources to run our very first outreach event and it's booked for August! 

We have partnered with our local partner that will be bringing professional staff into our school to test 185 children's eye sight on site. Many parents and families are told by the school that they should get their children's eyes tested but work commitment, low income means they can't afford the time off work and they can't afford the bus ride to the city. It is also unlikely if the child fails the test they will get glasses as the family simply can't afford glasses and food comes first in the priority of the family.

This event is going to be life-changing, we will be running 1:1 testing sessions throughout the day for all the children and any student that fails will be taken by the team to an optician for further testing. As part of the day event we will also be running fun activities and a puppet show for the younger children to promote healthy sight. 

While we have enough funds to run this event and to test all 185 children the funds are still very limited if many of the children do need glasses. While we have the funds to take them to the optician as of now we only have enough funds for 1 pair of glasses so this is our last request before the event, if you can please share our project with your network as any further donations between now and August will go towards the glasses fund for those children that really need it. 

Watch this space for photos and exciting updates after our event and I want to thank you and everyone that has helped us launch this project. 

Thank You
