Dear devoted readers,
This month we pulled another fun activity for some of our beneficiaries out of our hat. As you most probably know one of Ammish CD’s most important parts of its mission is the education of our next generation. That is why we’re often trying to bring the kids to the very roots of their history and offer them learning within their reach.
So we just rent a bus and drove off into the city. During the drive we stopped at different hot spots along the route, including the most important sights of Sowetan history. These were the Hector Pieterson Memorial, Vilakazi Street with Nelson Mandela’s and Desmond Tutu’s old homes and the huge Orlando Towers – just to name a few. We finished our tour at Oppenheimer Tower to catch the breathtaking view from above and have a tasty picnic in the underlying park.
To organise such an event, provide lunch parcels for the kids, rent a bus, etc. one needs a lot of support from external sources. We are very thankful for the energetic support of Mr. Mdakani from Bambanani Taxi Association, Lamola Butchery, White City Super store, Mr. Sithole from Engen Garage and Pakistani Shops around White City. All of them provided us with either food, financial support and most importantly their time – God bless you all! Last but not least we want to send a big thank you to all the parents who allowed their kids to take part in this activity and some who even accompanied us.
