Mission statement “Stichting Children’s Foodure”.
The mission statement of Children Foodure is to improve the living conditions of children in Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, so that they can have a brighter future.
Most children in ‘informal settlements’ live in small wooden/cardboard houses with tin roofs. It’s unbearable hot in summer and cold and wet in winter.
They normally live with more than 4 family members in one room, so do not have any privacy. And toilet facilities are generally not near their house. The high unemployment and alcohol/drugs abuse affects many children’s lives daily.
We couldn’t ignore this side of South-Africa and would like to make sure that these children can also have a future in this beautiful country, which is why we started sponsoring a soup- kitchen.
The soup-kitchen provides food and vitamines, and sometimes clothing to the less privileged children of Sir Lowry’s Pass Village. Currently we are feeding with 250 meals a day.
We trust the children have a better start every day.
Our vision is that in the end only by education these children can reach a better future.
A number of kids are selected every year to join our education program. This includes that their school fees are paid, they are provided with uniforms and books and there is a home-work class with teacher for them available after school.
The children are monitored throughout the year and once a year the kids are taken on a trip to celebrate their achievements.
We currently have 56 children in this program.
Once a year we organize a Christmas party for all the children, who visit the soup kitchen (in December 2012: 400 kids). This is a fantastic event! The community hall is decorated with a Christmas tree and there is a lot of singing, dancing and performing.
We provide all the children with food and yoghurt or ice cream and we like to give each child a gift. The last year these gifts/shoeboxes were sponsored by Kids2Kids and by the children of a local school in Strand.
Thank you for your interest !!
