Image: Anna Foundation - on a roll with bicycles, cheetahs and marathons! It’s the time of year when we focus on securing our funding and completing our strategic planning for 2018. This means growth for the Anna Foundation

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...

It was so exciting to watch some of our young children being interviewed for SABC TV this month. Not because they were on TV per se, but because they spoke so clearly using well formulated sentences … some even answering in English! This confidence would never have been possible 3 years ago! It just goes to show the impact our drama programme is having on these children’s self-esteem and confidence.   Read More...

Image: Warmth Shared with Anna Foundation This week the Anna Foundation took clothes to some of our most impoverished communities living on farms outside Montagu.

"I’ve had the privilege of living in Holland for a year. Winter mornings were often 1 or 2 degrees. Night times were icy cold. But Holland is prepared for this: houses are 100% insulated with indoor heating, shopping centres are heated, everyone has thick winter apparel to wear and lovely steamy food to eat. And yes, even here in South Africa we can experience these temperatures in winter and while our houses might not have under floor heating, we can put on the heaters or climb under a warm duvet."   Read More...

Image: Already term 1 is over! It has been a wild start to the year but a start I am feeling very proud of.

Our projects are now ticking over nicely, our facilitators are receiving incredibly valuable training and on site support, we’ve managed to monitor our children’s reading age and spelling ability (to be repeated twice more during the year) and we’ve already upgraded 2 of our school venues. All our children are eating nutritious meals and already I can see a difference in their well being.  So if I say so myself…. GO ANNA FOUNDATION GO!   Read More...
