New School Uniforms

New School Uniforms


The retiring offering for December 2008 raised close to R10,000 in support of loveLife’s goGogetters – grandmothers who each look after up to ten children and teenagers who are directly affected by HIV/Aids. The funds were sent to goGogetters in Mbekweni township near Paarl, who decided that the money would best be used buying new school uniforms for 23 children in their care. Often, children feel stigmatised because they don’t have uniforms, and some even drop out of school as a result. For most children and teenagers, this was the first time they had ever worn new uniforms.
