Hydrating the Kids of South Africa’s Khulani Children’s Shelter

684161_198ea8ef57a64e368089d849d4084d4c-mv2_d_6000_4000_s_4_2As the summer heat increases, it’s important to stay hydrated. With all the playing to be done outdoors and adventures to be had, balanced nourishment is imperative. We supplied South Africa’s Khulani Children’s Shelter with Cocos Pure coconut water so kids can focus on what they need to, education and having fun. Established as a safe place for orphans, abused, and abandoned children, Khulani Shelter operates as a 24-hour crisis centre and life skills training facility for disadvantaged youth. We are proud to support organizations in our community like Khulani Children’s Shelter. Read more about their story here or connect with them on Facebook.

Sharing Cocos Pure with the Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation

This morning Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation, an organization that provides pre-school education to vulnerable children in the Jeppestown and Belgravia neighbourhoods in South Africa, had their first taste of Cocos Pure.

We have a commitment to the communities we work with and are proud to share Cocos Pure with organizations such as Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation. Follow their story here or connect with Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation on Facebook or Twitter.

Here is a part of the Kgosi website letting you know how you can help.

How Can You Help the Kgosi Neighborhood Foundation

The Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation does not charge families anything for the services it provides.  As such the foundation is entirely dependent on support from corporations, foundations, and individuals. There are three ways you, or your organization,  can support the work of the Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation:  financial support, gifts in kind, and volunteer services.

Financial Support

Donations are always welcome.  Please visit our current needs page for our bank details. The following list gives a sense of what things will cost in 2012:

  • R20 000 ($2 500) a year to care for one family. This includes preschool education, two hot meals and a snack for the child, visits to the doctor, and assessment and skills development for the child’s caregiver.

  • R60/day to feed the children and staff of the Wings of Hope School.

Gifts in Kind

We can cut our operational costs signficantly through gifts in kind.  Donations of food and stationery for the school and office make a tremendous positive impact on our monthly budget.  Other needed gifts include:  white interior/exterior paint, cleaning supplies, computers, educational toys, and preschool books.

Volunteers

If you, or your organization, has the time, we would appreciate your volunteer services. In particular, we are seeking volunteers who can assist parents to improve their conversational English, and tutors who can assist our Wings of Hope School graduates with their homework.
