Being a teacher I naturally have a passion for a charity that dedicates its time and effort into enriching the lives of the generations to come. Singakwenza is just that charity! This incredible NGO/NPO dedicates its time & resources to educating our future at the most crucial stages of their lives, their ECD phase. Singakwenza is not only building a brighter future for each child but a brighter future for South Africa.
Another Singakwenza initiative is their Waste 2 Toys program which uses recycled materials to create toys for ECD classes and playgrounds. Recycling- another passion of mine! Please do yourself a favour and see just how incredible the toys they make are. Singakwenza proves that our children do not need all the fancy/expensive toys - a few bits of waste recycled into awesome toys does just the same. So many of our children do not get the luxury of toys, I witnessed this when I visited a Singkwenza supported creche last year. While visiting the creche, the teacher noted that one little girl had filled her top with all the bottle tops she could find, in hopes of tak8ing them home to play with!
So to mix these two very important factors, how could I not swim my 8 Miles in aid of them. So please may I ask you to join with me, support my effort to raise funds towards a charity that is close to my heart.
Last year I set the target for my fundraising at the required R12 000, this year I would like to up that to R15 000. For every R100 you donate, you are supporting one child for one month through the Singakwenza program. So for R500 5 children are supported & R1000 sees 10 children supported for a month. Your donation will make a significant difference in the lives of those you are supporting.
Let's do this & see a brighter future for our children & a cleaner South Africa too!
