In March 2021, we got to know the orphanage Uzwelo (which means “compassion”). We were able to donate pyjamas, slippers, toiletries and towels for 46 children. We were also able to cover the costs of painting and colouring the dormitories.

Colours for Kids is sponsoring two clever and hard-working girls: Thobeka Shabangu and Thembelani Moyo. They are two orphans who stood out at primary school due to their diligence and intelligence. But orphans have no money, so as a rule they cannot attend a good secondary school. Colours for Kids pays for their accommodation (boarding school), school fees, and provides them with school uniforms, books, pens etc. and also covers their expenses (e.g. food).

In November 2021, we had the classrooms in the kindergarten re-tiled and repainted. We also replaced the doors and frames, fitted new base units in the kitchen and installed a new tiled splashback behind the oven, as well as giving the kitchen a facelift.
