Shack Fire victims in Khayalitsha get new houses

Story by Gift of the Givers, 3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM, Khayelitsha, Cape Town, South Africa

Victims of the New Year's day shack fires recently received quality houses, built by Gift of the Givers.

Construction had initially commenced in February, but Gift of the Givers was highly unimpressed with the quality of those houses and stopped the entire project. They then put together their own building team, purchased quality building material, focussed on workmanship under their own supervision and management and the end result is there for all to see.

"Those who have visited these 24 new houses designed by us and built according to our specifications, are in absolute awe as to the effort dedicated in providing something of real quality free for the disadvantaged masses in our country." Building of the next 24 houses commenced on Monday, 25 March 2013.

The public is welcome to contribute to this ongoing project either into our bank account or sms "GIFT" to 30100 on a Vodacom number (100 % of funds come to us) or sms "GIFT" 40100 on any other network (80% of funds come to us). Visit the Vodacom Change The World platform for more details on this. Vodacom is an official partner to Gift of the Givers and sets up communication for us in disaster situations through specialised satellite technology in the absence of functioning networks.

Thankful for the help

Story by Harfield Early Learning Centre, 3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM, Lancaster St, Cape Town 7708, South Africa

Hi all, Our school needed bark chips under all our large equipment before winter. The bark chips mean that the children are not playing in mud in the wet winter months, but also that if someone should fall, there is a soft landing. With a generous donation from Alison Gibb and her "run for funds" NGO we were able to afford the chips needed. Now the school play ground looks more welcoming. The kids love playing on all the large equipment. As one walks past the school the sound of playing happy children is a welcome sound. Alison, thank you for seeing us on Forgood and deciding to help us. We really appreciate it!

School is open

Story by Harfield Early Learning Centre, 1/8/2013 7:00:00 AM, Lancaster St, Cape Town 7708, South Africa

On Tuesday, 8 Jan 2013 our school re-opened. Harfield ELC is in full swing again. It was so nice to walk in and greet all the familiar faces. A few of the new children had a difficult time letting a parent go, but when we fetched them they were all smiling. Who wouldn't? Lots of friends, lots of toys, space to run and climb and new things to learn. Wilma was there to greet all the parents and lead the children to their new classes, while the teachers settle the children in. Activities were packed out and the blue clay and dress-up corner would tempt even the parents to stay. Thank you Wilma and the staff of Harfield ELC for looking after our children so well!

Building partnerships for education in the North West province

Story by Youth for Christ Missions and Outreach , 12/22/2012 12:00:00 AM, 33 Arterial St, Germiston 2007, South Africa

A group of 15 volunteers from World Servants of Netherlands arrived on 18th December to take part in a Construction and Renovation Project at Ramosadi Primary in Mahikeng, Montshiwa in the North West Province. Youth for Christ Mahikeng works closely with the school where Youth Workers work along LO Educators in promoting Healthy Lifestyles amongst the 380 learners, many of whom are orphans and vulnerable children.

Youth for Christ SA, in partnership with World Servants of the Netherlands is building a Youth Missions Outreach Ministry that seeks to mobilize young South Africans with the Rainbow Spirit of Hope, to give of their time and selves to build and to make a difference. This partnership contributes to the UN's Millennium Development Goals for development. This particular project contributes as well to the Schools for Every Child Project. On the cards already are plans for the next project in the months of July or August.

Make every day Mandela Day

Itching to do something good? Want to make a difference for more than 67 minutes a year? Here are 30 ways to make a difference every day.

Quiz: how well do you know SA?

Which stadia were built in 2010? Where is the longest waterfall? Who was Nkosi Johnson? Take the quiz and find out how much of a proud patriot you are.

Ordinary people changing lives

In 2008, Philen Naidu and his wife found two 21-year-old high school dropouts on the streets of Zandspruit. Through soccer, they are now keeping 105 boys off the streets and out of trouble.

Diane Blyth, George - George United Football Club

 

"The forgood website has helped me to establish and make contact with other like-minded people (such as Danie van Loggenberg from Toys for Africa). These people have donated money, stationery and books to Thunzi Primary, which has had a huge impact on these young children."
