ts fill with pride when we see the children in the Othandweni Independent Living Skills programme taking their duties so seriously. These children come every day to work the veggie garden in Soweto to ensure they have fresh veggies to eat. Being in lockdown has changed their perspective, especially the older ones, who now understand the importance of self-sufficiency.
Birthdays are still celebrated!

Life carries on regardless of nasty viruses! Days tick past and birthdays come and go. But before they go, they need to be celebrated – and we thank donors for bringing colour and cheer to these special occasions.
In May, we held a party for all the Othandweni children whose birthdays fell in April and May.
And what a lovely day it was! There were party activities, sweet treats and birthday cakes – as well as gifts for the little guests of honour.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank all those who contributed to this important day. The children will cherish these magical moments forever.
