The year has started with such a BANG that we’re two weeks into March already, and we’re only “introducing” the year now – wow! Despite being extremely busy, it’s been an EXTRAORDINARY start to the year.

Pebbles Klopperpark was the first initiative to open their doors to the new year, on the 13th of January, with a humble beginning of only 35 children (versus our even more modest launch in 2016 with only 7 children!). However, the school has since grown to an astounding 63 children in total! What a phenomenal blessing that we’ve been offered in only 7 weeks!
Not all those families are able to cover their full school fees, so sponsorship is still very much appreciated and welcome. Contact us if you’d like more information on the privilege of sponsoring your own little one, and receiving all the social and financial benefits that come along with that!

Klopperpark Grade R’s, where the Life Team volunteers their time to teach the Grade R’s some basic gross and fine motor coordination skills through teamwork and play, restarted on the 22nd of February. They had 60 children, 30 in each Grade R class, and were able to start teaching them about Jesus and basic foundation skills from the get-go!
We’re really looking forward to seeing what amazing growth is in store for these children throughout this academic year – and trust you’ll support us in that process!
If getting involved with this initiative is something that intrigues you – please contact us!

Finally, we were also privileged to continue with our newly launched initiative, the Yeoville Homework Centre! This initiative was opened in August 2021, with a humble beginning of 1 to 2 attending students each week – but started up with 2 children on the 23rd of February, and 3 on the 2nd of March! We know that it’s small, but the growth is always welcome and very exciting for us!
This centre was also only directed to high schoolers in the Yeoville community, but has since been extended to Primary School children too!
The centre runs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2pm – chat to us if you live in that community and would like to attend, or if you have capacity to support the program in the various needs it has.

We trust that you’re as thrilled for what 2022 holds, as we are! We’re extremely excited to see what God is going to do in and through our organisation, and we would love to introduce you to our family through whatever time, finances, donations-in kind or even prayers you have to offer us!

THANK YOU, COUNTRY FRESH SOUTH AFRICA!

Since we opened Pebbles Klopperpark in July 2020, we have had to adapt and adjust to all the new regulations that the government had implemented in an attempt to keep our nation safe.

It hasn’t been an easy journey at all, but it is generosity received such as by Country Fresh that has carried us forward and helped us survive this trying time.

One of the regulations implemented for Early Childhood Development Centres is that each child has to have their own stationery and toys. Everything needs to be clearly marked and separate, and cleaned at the end of each day. Upon hearing this, we instantly commenced a hunt for containers that we could use to store these items!

We have 60 children at our school, and 31 children at Pebbles Primrose, so we knew that we had to quickly prioritize a hunt for almost 100 containers. We put out a request for containers on our social media platforms, and saw the most phenomenal response by our supporters and sponsors! But it wasn’t nearly enough…

Much to our surprise, Country Fresh actively located our cry for help on social media, and instantly showed interest! They escalated the need, and jumped through all the necessary hoops, urgently trying to help us with this matter.
And so, it was final! We received communication from them and delightfully went to visit them and pick up their generous donation!!

However, when we arrived on site, we instantly noticed that the ‘package’ seemed much bigger than we expected. It was at that moment that we were informed that they hadn’t just offered us 100 containers… they were donating 300 CONTAINERS! Triple the amount that we needed!!!

Words really cannot describe how blessed we feel by this somewhat “simple” donation. We were heard and actively helped by Country Fresh in a very trying and daunting time, and we will forever be grateful to the Country Fresh team!

Thank you so much Country Fresh, we really appreciate your generosity!

P.S: The little ‘attention-to-detail-bug’ inside us all is rejoicing at the fact that all the containers look the same, and the class looks so neat and colourful! Even that is a blessing

 

 

In March 2021, Pebbles Klopperpark was officially accepted as a MySchool under the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet loyalty programme! What a CELEBRATION!

 

Ukwakha Isizwe Foundation is constantly trying to find new ways to raise funding for our projects and beneficiaries without asking much of our supporters! There are creative programmes, such as MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet, where they’ve been established to support organisations WITHOUT requesting money from the public. Where the public is encouraged, in this case, to sign up for a virtual card and just show it at their next shop, which they were probably going to buy anyway.

That said, we are ecstatic to announce that we have been accepted into this programme, and we’re hoping you’ll jump on board and support us as your beneficiary of choice on MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet.
