South Africa is a country with stark opposites. On the one hand our eating habits tip the scales to us becoming one of the most obese populations in the world and on the other hand one third of all food produced in South Africa goes to waste, while more than 11 million hungry people are living without the fundamental security of regular meals. The Western Cape is in the worst drought crisis ever. Our landfills are full to overflowing. We aim to educate children at an early level to become stewards of the earth and to live their lives in radiant good health.
These is a charge for each of these workshops, but we are looking for sponsorships for children in the underprivileged schools in our city so that they may also attend them.
We offer educational activities to children and youth. These are advertised in schools, magazines and newpsapers, facebook, by word-of-mouth and by fliers in public spaces. There is a vast array of topics that go on around the year/s and parents and teaches phone our office to book a topic for a certain day and time.
