GOLF DAY INFORMATION
Sithanda Upliftment Projects have implemented and are operating a successful Early Childhood Development Education Centre. The facility is named “Ekuthuleni – A Place of Peace” and is situated in the Kwa-Mashu township in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Ekuthuleni facility provides a loving environment to 40-60 young children at any point in time, who previously did not have any access to any education or the correct nutrition required in the critical stages of early childhood development.
We have received many blessings of support from partner organisations, which allow Sithanda to reduce costs and provide an all-inclusive solution to each child. Our focus is to ensure that this facility continues to operate sustainably in serving our beneficiaries.
A formal “vegetable garden” is where all monetary fundraising efforts will go this year.
The Igardi Project
Provides an effective means of growing, harvesting and managing a sustainable vegetable garden. They are self-contained raised beds with built-in reservoirs that supply water from the bottom up ensuring minimal maintenance by only requiring watering every 2 weeks and achieving a massive water saving of up to 70% annually. Iagrdi will also provide a meal plan to Sithanda’s ECD and help manage the educational element of implementing this regime. Igardi works with Sithanda on a well-articulated planting chart and harvest requirements; this includes information regarding the yield, duration, storage and measurements. Igardi assists with the veggie garden materials, rollout plans and objectives, educational workshops with the ECD and ongoing support.
Our dream is to reach many young children through the effective management of a sustainable working vegetable garden.
Sithanda’s Participation in the event:
Aim: Through multiple forms of corporate/individual sponsorship, as well as participation we are hoping to raise in the region of R80 000 that will be utilised toward this sustainable vegetable garden. This will enable us to put as many children as possible on a healthy diet regime and educate them through the process. Currently we have 40 children attending Ekuthuleni. This is a fundamental step in changing their lives and brightening their futures. Not only feeding but also the possibility where there is excess to sell back to the community of Ekuthuleni and provide a sustainable source of income for the school to cover operational expenses.
