It is my privilege to swim the 8 Miles at Midmar 2019 for Singakwenza, a NGO that is close to my heart.
As an educator & avid sports fan, I wanted to make sure this was both a challenge as well as something that would contribute to making a difference in someone’s life.
With the knowledge that 80% of our brains development takes place before the age of 4, I’ve been even more motivated to help Singakwenza make a difference.
Singakwenza is a NGO that both improves the lives of children but also works to ease the prevalence of waste in our country by teaching ECD teachers to use recycled materials to create toys. So many of our children are disadvantaged through their circumstances, the schools available to them are under resourced with unskilled teachers. In order to meet the needs of these children, Singakwenza works to educate the ECD teachers on how to make toys vital to key developments in the children’s lives with recycled waste, scissors and a marker pen. That’s all they need! Awesome, right? With these toys being made with recycled waste, Singakwenza is thus working to create a cleaner environment as well as a difference in the lives of our future generations.
Please help me to help Singakwenza make a difference!
