Graduates and champions!

Supporting Early Childhood development sometimes gives one the most special moments of joy, and one of those moments was being at our Nourish Creche graduation, on the 10th December... where 14 little children from our creche "graduate"to big school - on to Grade R (the first year of school in the SA schooling system ) this requires them to know their alphabet, and basic counting, and of course, compulsory in this country... to have your first school uniform. The children are only between 4-5 years old, so seem so tiny to be going on in their uniforms... and their performances to show off to their parents their songs, and skills is almost too adorable to describe. 

 

The event is not only for the graduates by a sort of year end/Christmas celebration for all the children in our creche, so special outfits, lots of dancing, and a total cuteness overload. We even adapted the tradition of doing little fashion shows, to match the Nourish recycled ethic... and all the little ones made their fashion show outfits by upcycling plastic into skirts and hats. The parents turned out in full force to watch with pride, amidst much ululating and dancing. This creche is a special place for us to help educate these children, and its so great to see the pride on the parents faces... children that we have helped give a headstart in life.. children we believe in... that are now part of our Nourish family, and  that we know can be the leaders and champions of the future! 

 

As the year ends, i want to thank each person for their support - for Sponsoring a child, a school uniform, or the graduation... and for the difference this makes,not only to me... but to the little seeds that you are watering, that will one day become a mighty tree... Changing the future of South Africa, one little graduate and champion at a time!
