Spring 2022 Updates

Joanne and Brittany Visit South Africa

This month, Joanne and Brittany have returned to South Africa to visit our team and see the growth and success of our new programs. During their trip they visited many of our partner schools, met with principals, and observed our Girls’ Club and Mina Cup workshops.

In this newsletter we would like to share just some of the amazing things that are happening at our partner schools.

Beretta Primary’s Girls’ Club

Beretta Primary’s Girls’ Club has been meeting weekly after school at Beretta for a special meeting and a hot meal. The girls are enjoying the club and are displaying greater confidence in and out of school.

This month we are celebrating Menstrual Health & Hygiene Day by hosting another Mina Cup Workshop where girls in need will receive menstrual hygiene cups and they will participate in an educational workshop about menstrual health. 

Permaculture Gardens

Permaculture gardens at our partner schools are also expanding. Students and staff from Morei Primary School have been working hard to create garden beds, mulch, plant seedlings and trees, and implement different permaculture techniques to improve their harvests and protect their vegetables from insects. We are looking forward to hosting a Permaculture Workshop for our partner schools in the coming months and we can not wait to help them grow their gardens.

Every donation helps us bring WASH+ solutions to our partner schools and new programs. This includes, clean water, improved sanitation, sustainable gardens, safer kitchens, after school programs, enterprise development courses, and female empowerment programs!
