Do good Mandela Day

Do good Mandela Day

Don your superhero cape and do good this #MandelaDay as called on by our beloved Ntate Mandela. Never has it been more important to show support, kindness and love to our fellow humans and animals.
Here in #Clarens, we have some superheroes of our own who would jump for joy if you could assist.
Combined Churches in Action are providing a daily meal for 200 vulnerable children at the Tsepong Centre here in Clarens. Information is on http://ccia.co.za/
The Clarens Feeding scheme is delivering a food parcel to 300 destitute families every Wednesday. This initiative is 100% privately driven and funded and the team of volunteers are desperate for any donations. You can WhatsApp 0836081441 to assist.
Nnete Foundation is assisting learners to continue their schooling in these times. Read about their work on https://www.nnetefoundation.com/about-us
Our friends at Lion’s Rock Big Cat Sanctuary in Bethlehem are an animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing animals held in captivity. See the amazing work being done and help with a donation on www.lionsrock.org
Clarens Community Concerns collects unwanted clothing and household goods to distribute amongst our locals who can purchase for less than the cost of a loaf of bread or a smile if they are unable to purchase. The funds raised go back into the Clarens charities. You can e-mail deboeratlast@gmail.com to donate.
The Cluny Animal Trust is hammering away at building 100 #MandelaDay weatherproof dog kennels for the dogs in the informal settlements of Clarens and Fouriesburg.

If you are unable to part with your hard-earned savings in these trying times, show some love to your neighbours and fellow residents through random acts of kindness. A wise man said “Be kind, unless you can be fantastic. Then be fantastically kind”.
The NNETE Foundation equips and empowers

The NNETE Foundation equips and empowers

The NNETE Foundation, a NPO based in Kgubetswana, Clarens, born out of the vision of Dihlabeng Church aims to equip and empower its community.
Nnete started in 2016 with a group of high school students meeting after school each day, providing them with a work desk, access to textbooks, internet and mentors in a positive, safe environment conducive to personal growth. Past students have gone on to study around the country in sound engineering, electrical engineering, nursing & more.
Nnete’s goal is to help break the poverty cycle by equipping these students with every skill they need to fulfil their dreams which includes getting some new life skills, exposing them to a wider world view and helping them believe in themselves.
Nnete is supporting 45 families with wood & maize every second week. They are currently working with high school students at the centre and supporting any high school students with revision notes and past papers via Whatsapp as well as training ECD teachers to get level 4 & 5 qualifications.
Learners between grade 8 and 12 needing assistance can WhatsApp their name, grade and subject to 0823393619 to receive notes and exercises.

How could you get involved?

• Come speak to our students about what you do (broaden their worldview)
• Give some time to mentoring some young people (It’s easier than you think!)
• Do you have a skill you could train others in? We would love to create the platform for you to do that.
• Donate wood, maize or money?
