With Mandela Day 2021 nearly upon us, many South Africans – whether individuals or businesses and organisations – will likely be searching for ways to commemorate Madiba’s legacy by giving back to those in need.

From giving old buildings a fresh coat of paint to donating vital goods to help improve the lives of children, adults and the elderly in Alex, we have made a list of specific ways you can help make life better for the community for Mandela Month.

We have also seen the incredibly positive impact that long-term relationships have on Alex, first-hand, and are appealing to you to commit to helping Alex through an ongoing sponsorship.

Sponsor a Child is a Rays of Hope initiative that connects generous hearts with children in need, allowing them to benefit from one of three programmes we offer. These are Ithemba Labantwana, which offers emotional and spiritual support to vulnerable children, Rose-Act Saturday School for extra maths and English classes, and attendance at the Hlayisanani ECD Centre, where children are not only given the chance to play and learn, but receive nutritious daily meals too.
