With this growth in mind, we’ve expanded our core staff to increase the support we offer to our projects. It’s always exciting to get new energy and new blood into the organisation, and in this case we are specifically excited by the involvement of Leana Claasen who was a previous facilitator at one of our projects since 2010! Leana brings a wealth of hands on experience, having worked on the ground for 7 years with the Anna Foundation programmes, and now being ‘behind the scenes’ and offering support and training to the women at the projects. We are excited to watch her develop in this role!   Read More...

With child abductions, gang violence and rampant substance use making the news on a regular basis, we need not question what the negative effects on children are. We know for a fact from years of close observation – that a child’s innocence, feeling of safety and trust in the world has been radically shaken.

But when these events start to repeat, in a community that is soaked in these social ills our children need direct and urgent support.   Read More...
