Back to school

| 20 January 2014

The Nashua Children’s Charity Foundation has been shopping up a storm thanks to Jet, an anonymous sponsor, and a donation of 60 small school bags from Pick ‘n Pay Woodmead.

Jet back to school Thusong

Thusong Children’s Home are proudly sporting their new school uniforms and bags (Jet cost R4 059.35) and can now boast being the smartest dressed children in their respective classes.

Two large piles of stationery will be delivered to Nyeleti’s Children’s Home (R5 450.40 courtesy of Jet and purchased at CNA), and to Mangolongolo Squatter Camp (R8 007.35 courtesy of Jet and purchased at CNA), where the NCCF is assisting 150 indigent children through The Last Hope Organisation, whom we have worked with for a number of years. An anonymous donor added R741.34 to this spend.

Thanks also to Jet, for the further purchase of 13 school bags for the high school children of Fountain of Love. They will also be receiving some of the donated Pick ‘n Pay school bags for the smaller children.

Our next back to school initiative is taking us out of town early in February, when we head for Kimberley. A request came to NCCF via Gail Mabelane (of The Wild fame) who comes from the Northern Cape and assists with many charitable projects for the underprivileged children in the area.
