Tannie Sanna lives in a twilight world of soft white light in the day and deep darkness at night. She is blind. She lives alone on a remote Cape farm where her cottage has no running water and no toilet. The other families on the farm worry about her and are concerned that she might hurt herself so they have been locking her up in her house during the day for the past two years.
For those readers who might like to know a little more about the Goedgedacht Trust: it is primarily an educational & charitable trust, working to relieve poverty issues affecting farm workers in the Swartland area.
November was a very exciting month at the Riverlands POP Youth Centre. With the help and guidance of the Goedgedacht Care for the Planet team, the Riverlands Bakery was opened.
The Care for the Planet department at Goedgedacht Trust works on raising environmental awareness within the broader Trust communities. This includes working with children at the POP centres and reaching out to parents in their neighbourhoods.
