SANTA SHOEBOX PROJECT
The Santa Shoebox Project collects and distributes gifts at Christmas time to underprivileged children throughout South Africa and Namibia. The Santa Shoebox Project originated in Cape Town and has grown in leaps and bounds, with the number of Santa Shoeboxes growing from a humble 180 boxes in 2006 to a record 118 274 in 2013. The boxes are distributed to more than 1000 recipient facilities, through more than 60 satellites around South Africa and Namibia.
CHRISTIAN DAVID PRIMARY SCHOOL
Christian David Primary School located in Steenburg, Cape Town were in need of computers for use by their learners.
MCi were able to provide a computer lab sponsorship for this much needed resource.
Cotlands initiates and facilitates innovative, play-based early learning opportunities for young children. Children are provided access to toy library and playgroup programmes aimed at improving school readiness. The goal is to ensure that children have the required skills to excel when entering formal schooling and to develop holistically for their future success.
RED BELT MOVEMENT
Red Belt Movement is a social impact charity, located in South Africa, with the vision of reaching millions of girls across the African continent.
Their goal is to assist women from a young age to manage their Menstruation with pride and dignity. There are too many girls who miss a week of school each month due to not having access to products and/or safe toilets.
