We hope this year has been incredible so far for you! In January's Newsletter update, we would like to highlight how in 2019, we are moving forward to improving lives through education and invite you to our upcoming Paint & Sip and volunteer events. Lastly, I would also like to share our next exciting competition taking place on the 31 March available to monthly donors who contribute from as little as R25. This is just a small token of our appreciation to those that may a kind contribution towards improving lives through education.

Let the growing begin at Charleston Hill Secondary school
Our 2nd year of the iGardi Project after-school program at Charleston Hill has kicked off where we will be teaching students (via interactive workshops) how to grow vegetables sustainably. We were already blown away when we got to the school after the holidays and did our first harvest for the year together! Click here to read the full story.
