Caring Community & Doing Random Acts of Kindness

Please seek out opportunities to help or to make someone feel good every day. Often a random smile alone can become a forever feel-good memory. Do things like holding open a door, offer assistance or do any random act of kindness. Every small interaction with someone is an opportunity to make a difference and to have a positive impact on both of your lives.

The Pebbles Project in the Hemel & Aarde Valley is refreshingly heart warming! Due to the very hard work of the Pebbles Project teams, Carolyn Martin of Creation Wines and many lovely people who donated, the new school bus were nearly completely payed for in just three months. The bus is used to fetch and drop children who would otherwise not have been able to reach a school every day. Please donate to help grow this wonderful project!

The main emphasis of the Pebbles Project is education. We work with children and families in the Winelands farming communities in the Western Cape.  We focus on the entire life of the child and the challenging circumstances in which they live in order to make a significant and lasting difference. Since our inception in 2004, we have impacted the lives of children and their families in areas of education as well as nutrition, health, community and protection. Read more about the great work that is done by the Pebbles Project and please donate!

Independent NPO – Anima Special Needs Children Therapy Centre Hermanus

Independent NPO – Help the children at the Butterfly Centre in Stanford. 
Opened on 20 July 2015, the Butterfly Centre in Stanford caters to children who are not coping in the mainstream school environment. This school and community centre has already changed the lives of countless families and kids. The children and their families benefit from the latest research and techniques to ensure that each child reaches their own full potential and lives their very best life. We also host workshops and talks with experts all fields of special needs. Parents who have been told their children will never read are hearing them read. Non-verbal children have started speaking. Miracles are happening, and continue to happen.
We need funding to continue to grow and help the ever increasing community of these special children and their families. We aim to educate and raise awareness which can help build a fully inclusive society, where children are celebrated for their uniqueness and taught to believe they can do anything they set their minds to.
We currently rent premises, but long term the vision is to build a permanent home for the centre through our registered NPO, the Butterfly Foundation. Funding also continues to ensure that we bring the latest teaching tools and educational materials to our area of the Overberg, South Africa. Please consider supporting us in any way you can.
Thank you to those who are helping us to make a difference.
Please support the new Butterfly Centre – Special needs schools and therapy centre in Stanford.
