Help us get ready for the new school year ... whatever it takes
2020 was especially tough on our little ones. They had to learn a whole new way of doing their lessons – and not all of them coped well.
Its hard enough to learn in a class full of 30 children. But it’s even harder to learn without a teacher standing up in front of you, or classmates next to you to ask for help. That’s why we’re asking for your help, to make sure our kids have everything they need to shine in their schoolwork this year.
Please will you help by making your special ‘school’ donation now?
Right now we’re short of stationery items like pens and pencils, notebooks, crayons and roll-ups for art. Above all we need paper … reams and reams of it for printing out school work sheets if the kids can’t get back to school. We also need electronic devices for our home school ‘teachers’ so they can keep in touch with teachers and parent groups, and use digital teaching modules provided.
So please will you make your donation now?
If you donate before the end of February, you’ll benefit too! Because, you’ll receive a Section 18A Certificate that allows you to claim a money back from SARS if you’re a South African tax payer.
So you’ll not only save on your tax – you’ll help our kids shine during this school year … whatever it brings. Thank you for your kindness.
Giving our children all the tools they need to succeed – thanks to caring people like you.
children deserve to be safe & happy
In a perfect world, every child would grow up in a loving home – with enough food, clothing and opportunities to play and learn.
But it’s not a perfect world.
The Durban Child & Youth Care Centre strives to give children who’ve been orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused, another chance of a happy childhood. We provide a safe home, all the daily necessities, education and encouragement to help them develop into healthy, well-adjusted kids.
Wherever possible, we work with the family to enable children to return home. Because every child needs a place to belong.
