Here at Twinkles, we forged several links with a number of overseas projects in Kwa Zulu Natal in South Africa, and have continued to support these projects since 2009.
The fundraising work we have done and continue to do supports Entuthekweni pre school with food donations, clothing, teaching resources including books, writing equipment as well as items for cleaning and washing.
Additionally we support a voluntary teacher called LIFE who is from Zimbabwe, he teaches primary school children at the local school, he has a wife and two small children and lives in a little hut with one room in the local area. He has a class of over 50 children between the ages of 6 and 9 years old. He doesn’t earn anything from the school as they cannot afford to pay him and he relies 100% on donations and charity support. We are currently funding an extension to his hut to improve sanitation, to provide washing facilities and a separate bedroom for the children and a waterproof roof.
To further our support, we are looking for donations of children’s books which we can send across to Life’s school.
If you have any books you would like to donate, please speak to a member of staff 🙂
