So proud of our team of gals who will be paddling across Lake Malawi in Sept 2017 to raise funds for our breadmaking initiative in rural communities.
Women empowerment begins even with the team - taking these wonderful ladies out of their comfort zones, pushing them to the limits and teaching them how great it feels to be making a difference. No one in the team has paddled before!
Any corporate who would like to get involved, please contact Cherry on 0824401730. We would welcome any sponsorship for this event - we have an SED certificate and can help with a tax saving.
Celebrate Life have donated R20,000 to the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation for the Thula Thula Rhino Sanctuary from the proceeds of the sale of the rhino sculpture in London. Rhino poaching is at it's highest and is a national disaster. If we can make a tiny difference in saving orphaned rhinos after their parents have been poached... it is worth the effort. Every cent makes a difference."
Gladys Zulu has taken on her new oven project in Marianhill with an energy like no other. Up early in the mornings with fellow bakers, Zethu and Ntombi, they bake bread, snowballs, chelsea buns and pizza's and have found a good niche in the community to sell their products. Their enthusiasm is catchy and they are a delight to mentor. Women empowerment is so important going forward in South Africa and it's wonderful that Celebrate Life is paving a way for this to happen. The ovens are fired by a small wood fire and bakers can bake 4 loaves of bread every 25 minutes. Such an awesome sustainable project.
A heartfelt thank you to the IQRAA TRUST South Africa for donating 5 ovens for our oven projects, enabling us to empower women by assisting them to own their own bakeries as well as feed local schools and orphanages in the area.
The first of the ovens was launched in Marianhill and we're hoping it will be a roaring success. Three of the ovens will be given to Vision 153 in Ballito to aid them with their wonderful feeding schemes.
We will keep you posted on the placement of the 5th oven.
Thank you to the IQRAA Trust for helping us help others.
