Steiner Hygiene has partnered with us since the beginning of 2014 by installing bins, sani bins and servicing both Educational Centres on a regular basis by providing paper towels, soap and other cleaning materials. It is wonderful that we can therefore provide the children with a clean hygienic environment.
FEDICS undertakes the catering at the Education Centres at Esigodini and Imbali serving approximately 3000 meals per centre per month. The well balanced meals consist of a portion of protein, starch and vegetables and are going down very well with the kids.
They generously donate R2000.00 a month to Siyabonga and are partnering with us on the garden project. We are hoping they will be able to buy the fresh produce for our kitchens and for their other catering sites.
Sunshine Seedling Services provide our vegetable garden with seedlings free of charge on a regular basis. Carla Heilgendorff (Administration Manager) commented, “We are honoured to support Siyabonga Helping Hands in their vision of building a better future for the Youth of this country."
We have had a relationship with Laddsworth Primary School for a number of years. The learners are asked to collect items such as small Christmas gifts, (eg stationery, toiletries etc) and Easter Eggs for our children.
Various classes have also visited our Esigodini Educational Centre in order to interact with the “township” children attending our programmes. The School has also been very generous in passing on books and other educational items which they no longer use.
The Sean Williams Living Creatures Trust makes a monthly contribution towards one of our staff salaries and also towards the meals we provide on a daily basis. They have also donated chairs to our Imbali Centre.
We have had generous donations from Save over the years, in particular the donation of kitchen appliances for both the Esigodini and Imbali Educational Centres. One of the directors of Save also donates up to 100 loaves of bread on a weekly basis.
