Your gift is priceless to us!

Your gift to us is priceless, we treasure your support especially the change that you have brought about in our lives. My socks might not be matching but I am safe and happy where I am right now.

We are currently 37 children at the home and we are very happy, we are loved, we are cared for deeply and we are fed very well.

Our stories start with us being badly abused, neglected, abandoned , infected or affected by HIV & AIDS or sometimes just malnourished. We are placed at the home and here is where our journey of change begins.

Every day we are taken through programmes to strengthen our fine and gross motor skills. We are taught about the dangers of abuse, the beauty of taking pride in our bodies and being equipped to look after ourselves. We love the programme Jerry Giraffe it teaches us good things.

We have been placed into a brand new school just around the corner from our home there are 8 of us who attend the Pre – School and Grade R. We have been taught how to occupy ourselves, so we are now able to write our names, count and this has boosted our confidence levels and so we are very proud of who we are.

Every day we have to wear our school uniform and we are very proud of our uniforms. It is white blouses, black school shoes and navy blue skirts and grey shorts. We have to look after our uniforms because it cost a lot of money and we have to wear it every day.

Your donation enables us to be educated every day and to be kept off the streets and to learn to become strong.
I am only 8 years old and I have never been to school all the other children go off to school every day and I have to stay at home. I am lucky that a teacher comes to our home twice a week to teach me the curriculum. I know that plans are being made for me to attend school as well.

We also have dreams and some of us want to be Doctors, Engineers, Pilots, Teachers. We want to help others as we are currently being assisted at Fikelela.

Thank you for your support and for loving us the way you do.
