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.
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.
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.
