Keeping cool!

A big thank you to the cool guys at Ceramic Matters, Gerhardt and Anthony, for the fridge donated to the kitchen at the school. This kitchen feeds all the kids at the Anne Pienaar school on a daily basis.

Any second hand kitchen appliances are appreciated and goes a long way towards ensuring that the kids have full tummies – making it so much easier to concentrate in class…

Playground Progress

Thank you very much to all Irna & Bridget’s guests who contributed to the Anne Pienaar School fund.

Due to your generous contributions we can now clean up, level a play area  AND put up jungle gyms and swings on the school grounds, where previously the children had no facilities.


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
