Leap school social development day – September 2017

 

We had our Social Development Day on the 28th September 2017, which is a day of giving back. Social Development is an important part of LEAP’s outreach to the community our students come from. It is LEAP’s way of keeping in touch with our roots. Social development activities include visiting our local creches, most of which our students attended themselves or volunteering at nearby old age homes and homes for the disabled. At our creches we teach the children different exercises and partake in educational activities with them as well. In the homes for the seniors and disabled, our students help clean the facilities, assist in cooking as well as feeding. We have an ongoing supportive relationship with our sites, where the students think of meaningful ways of engaging with the people in their communities.

We donated the  Food cans to 11 social development sites, comprising of the following:

  • Sombambisana Creche: Crossroads
  • Sombambisana Disability: Crossroads
  • Sombambisana Seniors: Crossroads 
  • Vuyolwethu Creche: Delft
  • Ethafeni Creche: Nyanga
  • Monwabisi Seniors: New Crossroads 
  • Nolunthando Seniors: Nyanga
  • Nomzamo Seniors: Gugulethu
  • Ithemba Labantu: Philippi 
  • Inga Educare
  • Nomonde

We invited all donors and special guest that participated on Nelson Mandela Day.  We were honoured to have Rhodes Food Group, SA singer Jarred Ricketts ,The Hyprop Foundation (Canal Walk) and Students wearing the Greenbox Tshirts as they could not make it to  join us at this special event. 

LEAP Students donated the boxes of  canned food to the social development projects that they have an ongoing relationship with as listed above. The appreciation of the beneficiaries was priceless and proved that there is no better feeling than making someone smile and being able to give back.

Thank you to Greenbox and all other partners for making this possible.
