Craig Muller is raising funds for Singakwenza

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world", Nelson Mandela.

In February 2019 I will join 'The 8 Mile Club' which has become an integral part of the annual aQuellé Midmar Mile. The 8 Mile Club is made up of a group of swimmers who attempt to swim all eight events over the race weekend, for charity. I will be raising funds for Singakwenza ('we can do it!' in iSizulu) Early Childhood Education, a non-profit which aims to build sustainable early childhood development programmes in economically disadvantaged communities.

The goal at Singakwenza is to teach as many parents, educators and community workers about the importance of learning through play as we can (as opposed to rote learning and meaningless repetition which is what is currently happening in so many early learning centres) and to show them how easy it is to provide fun activities for their children so that they can develop vital educational foundations.

Research around the world has shown that the best way to break the poverty cycle is through education, but unfortunately our South African education system is in a crisis.

With the above in mind, I kindly urge you to consider donating to this worthy cause as it provides hope and opportunity of a better future for countless children. I believe this is probably one of the most important gifts we can give, and have dedicated this swim (studies and career) toward making a positive difference in South Africa.

Sincerely yours,
