Little Libraries

"After having visited many creches and daycares in the townships around Cape Town I realised that caregivers do their utmost to enhance the daily lives of the children placed in their care, but ‘luxuries’ like books and stationery are unattainable although they are key ingredients to creating a stimulating environment.

By launching the little libraries initiative we wanted to provide those creches, daycares and pre-schools with a reading corner where kids can learn, dream and enjoy a whole new world through words and pictures - unlocking their imaginations. That way, children can also become familiar with books prior to arriving at primary school where they will be handed textbooks.
Originally we aimed to help one school. A year later, we had helped 40 - which represents 5000 books, enabling 1500 children to have access to reading material. We want to help many more!!!!
We also started distributing stationery to ensure that children get to develop their fine motor skills and thus do not arrive at primary school not knowing how to hold a pen as yet" Camille, founder

Knysna Fire

 In light of the fires that devastated the community of Knysna earlier in 2017, our learners were encouraged to donate items. These items were then driven up to Knysna by the Baker family (Tyla, Grade 3; Daniel, Grade 6) and added to the other donations collected to contribute to helping those who lost everything.

Kindness Day at Shelanti

Before we can show kindness to others outside of our school, we need to show kindness to EACH OTHER! Shelanti hosted a Kindness Day in which learners were encouraged to spend time with someone who they may not otherwise socialize with. Because KINDNESS STARTS WITH US!!

African Tails

Untitled

Once upon a time in December 2006, an organisation called African Tails was born. Its is set on the dusty streets of Du Noon and Joe Slovo townships in Cape Town, where African Tails strives to curb the over-population and suffering of abused and neglected township dogs.

Everyone at African Tails is bound by their love for the uniquely African dog, known as Canis Africanis, frequently found in rural areas and on the streets of South Africa’s informal settlements.
