Brigitte Melly is raising funds for Singakwenza

Did you know that 80 % of a child's brain potential is developed by the age of 4?

Singakwenza is a KZN based organisation that aims to build sustainable early childhood education programmes in disadvantaged communities. They mentor creche caregivers over a period of two years and guide them to use resources made out of recycled materials (amazing!). This year there are 66 caregivers and 1185 children participating in this programme, and it would be incredible if more could participate in the future. In February 2019 I will be swimming 8 miles (all 8 Midmar Mile events) to raise funds for Singakwenza. 

Please help me reach my goal for this incredibly worthy cause! No donation is too small. As an added bonus you can claim it on your next tax return too! (Just click on the S18A certificate when you are paying)
