Back to school

January is our busiest time of the year, from stationery shopping to purchasing and distribution of uniforms and covering books for 76 children…it all becomes a huge job. A round of applause to our childcare workers for always going an extra mile during this process, for us to transition with ease whilst helping each child meet their individual educational needs. 

This year we are blessed with 5 matriculants who started prepping for the year in December 2022 with the support of our socal worker.  Classes have commenced and all children have been placed to various schools.

Here’s to endless blessings as the children start another academic milestone.

Spell it in 30 seconds
Brotherz Inc and Real dreamers (senior boys’ and girls’ cottage) held an educational program on the 12/01/23. Using alphabet cards to make a word in 30 seconds. They were divided into groups of 4 and had to compete against each other fighting for the spot of the quickest word speller. This helped a lot with the vocabulary as well as training their mind set.
#Healthy competition.
My Dreams and Motivation
This program was planned and executed by The Cartoons (junior boys). The boys had to each draw a picture of themselves and come up with a presentation. They had to explain in front of everyone the dress code and motivation behind their career chosen based on the picture.
A great way to encourage the children with their career choices.
Exciting news….

KFC Add Hope:This initiative partners with over 138 beneficiaries to ensure that children are receiving a nutritious meal daily. Add Hope raises money through customer donations added at the till or on the Add Hope website, as well as donating a percentage of KFC profits as its own Corporate social responsibility.
This is how it works:
When buying a meal you simply Add R2 for Add Hope to your bill…
Donations are also made by KFC…All that donations goes to the KFC Social Responsibility Trust…who then allocates to suitable applicants
through the Add Hope Ccampaign.
(This Campaign feeds nutritious meals to over 120 000 children every day in South Africa, and PCH is one of their beneficiaries)
Your R2 really does go a long way, and reaches us
to serve our children on a daily basis, so don’t hesitate to make your R2 pledge today!
The more you contribute to this campaign the better for us in the sector who service vulnerable children, as we are able to receive an increased allocation based on the value of the fund.
