As Mandela month comes to an end, we are filled with gratitude and love as we reflect on the ways that we were blessed this month, and how we, in turn, could share the love with others…

Mandela Day

The amazing team from Grosvenor Tours spent much more than #67minutes with us on Mandela Day and had a great time touring our communities, distributing clothing, dropping off toys at Vonny’s Baby Centre, and getting us started on our new wall collage at our Strandfontein clubhouse.

We are also so grateful to Grosvenor for the blanket donations which will go a long way towards keeping our children warm this winter

Impact in action..spreading the love

Our team was busy this month distributing beanies, toothpaste, and toothbrushes to community partners and local ECDs in Strandfontein…we love to pay it forward whenever we’ve been blessed by others.

Paying it forward…

We always try to teach our children gratitude, good manners, and the value of sowing seeds and giving back; and in Mandela Week the children in our school put that into action when they prepared sandwiches for Vonny’s Baby Center, the local ECD who we partner with.

Our ladies also volunteered at Ottery Pick ‘n Pay for 3 days to assist FoodForward SA (who is a valued food partner) with their Mandela Day food collections…

Teamwork makes the dream work

We are so thankful to our amazing staff who tirelessly serve our kids and communities with passion and a smile! They truly embody the spirit of Madiba and we couldn’t do this without them…
