Melkbos Care Centre

Shelanti had the privilege of visiting the Melkbos Care center, where we got to donate some Lego and art supplies.

Lego is such a great tool to use for ''learning through play"


From a young age, it is important for children to understand the importance of other people. Lego helps develop their social skills by giving children the ability to work in groups to make creations. Once the creations are done, the children can play together and create exciting stories from their imaginations.

Book Day for Little Libraries and Help The Rural Child!

Shelanti celebrates it's annual Book Day with Help The Rural Child and Little Libraries!


Table View SAPS and Milnerton Fire Department

On the 27th of February 2019, our learners visited the Table View Police Station and the Milnerton Fire Department to show their gratitude for the selfless work that these men and women do to keep us safe. Remember: KINDNESS STARTS WITH US!

Help The Rural Child!

Help the Rural Child Trust was established in 2006 and is a registered Charitable Trust and NPO. They operate 6 charity shops in the greater Cape Town area and are entirely dependent on donations received. The proceeds of the HTRC charity shops go towards supporting rural youth centres.




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


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.
