Team Fostering's Training Co-ordinator Zascha recently travelled to South Africa, visiting a charity which, like Team Fostering, supports children and young people towards more positive futures. Here she tells us more about her experience:
"I recently went on holiday back to my homeland of South Africa. Whilst there, I took the opportunity of visiting the projects of a charity I support – Breadline Africa.
They do absolutely fantastic work throughout South Africa and rely entirely on donations. Providing infrastructure, safer spaces and initiatives to support childhood development in Southern Africa through early childhood.
- Primary school libraries, pre-school classrooms, kitchens and toilet blocks (built from shipping containers)
- Annual seaside outing (surprising how many kids haven’t been to the sea even though right on their doorstep!)
- Feeding programmes
I had the most amazing time and experience visiting their before and after projects and what a positive impact it has on these bright and beautiful children. The sincere, dedicated work of the teachers and principals involved is admirable! All really hit home how very fortunate we are.
The whole thing really touched my heart and soul. There is so much faith and hope in South Africa and it is with support such as yours that together we can make a very real difference to many lives."
If you'd like to make a contribution to the work that Breadline Africa do, making a positive difference to the lives of young people in South Africa, Zascha is running a fundraiser here.
