Our Generous and Loyal Friends who have been waving the red flag for rural children trapped in poverty standing by our side for many years – THANK YOU!!

Our Staff

Here is a group of South Africans who are doing everything in their power to create a stronger South Africa and make this country of ours a happier, kinder and more prosperous place to live in. Thank you for your contribution and may you all continue to draw our rural children out of poverty and help them to a better way of life.

Our Volunteers

These are the unsung heroes of our organisation; they often pass silently through and never get the acknowledgement they richly deserve. They give of their time, their skills and wisdom and I want to take this opportunity to salute them and thank them for their contribution to helping us help rural children.

Our Trustee Team

As a development organisation we are always growing and learning, mounding ourselves with the tides of change. We are very blessed to be guided and supported by this team of very busy consummate professionals who give freely of their time and expertise to help us be the best we can be. Our Trustees meet throughout the year to review our work our finances and self-interest issues.

Thank you from all of us!
