With the afterschool program, the project grasps the challenge that the community is facing at its root. By offering activities, education and a safe and supervised place to play against the risk of embarking in criminal activities will be minimised. Helping children with their homework and teaching them proper studying habits for exams will improve their grades and will give them a better perspective for their future after school.
AMMISH Community Development has big plans for 2018. Not only are we working on 3500 Christmas presents for our beneficiaries we also want to increase our scope and support even more children in Soweto. But we can't beat this challenge alone - we need Your help!
Big news for Christmas 2018: We are starting our own Santa Campaign
In 2018 we applied for Santa Shoebox again as we did in 2017 successfully. Short info: Santa Shoebox is an organization which collects shoeboxes with presents from individuals and gives them to children in need. Last year we only asked for 500 boxes and got 700 pieces. In 2018 we hoped to get 3500, because our numbers of children expanded so incredibly fast. [ 447 more words ] ammish.org/campaigns/christmas-shoebox-campaign-2018_674/... See MoreSee Less
Ammish is back with another update from Soweto, but this time featuring Itekeng Primary School as its main topic. This school which is located in White City Jabavu is one of the schools we're closely cooperating with. On 15th June Itekeng opened its new sports center and invited some of us to celebrate with them. We happily accepted the invitation and not only came to watch, but also brought our own netball team with us.
