More than 200 kids to school!

June 2018 – Business Mastery 2018 Rotterdam

In June 2018, our board member Monique Janssen took part in the Business Mastery of Tony Robbins in Rotterdam. A group exercise was to add value to other people. Her group chose our Zweli Foundation as the charity, and specifically ensuring that children go to school in the area Mpumalanga.

Uniform = to school

In Mpumalanga a child needs a uniform to be able to go to school. A uniform and shoes costs 50 euro. The group raised more than 10,000 euro, which means more than 200 children to school! A large part of this amount was sponsored by one of the trainers of Tony Robbins, a prominent businessman from Denmark that finds this purpose very important. On the last day he doubled the amount that was raised by the group (donating almost 5000 euros).

Thankful and hopeful

This week the first children got their uniforms. Our colleague Marleen Lintel was there on site to make sure everything went well. Many kids have been on the waiting list for a long time and where so happy that they finally can start school. This step gives them so many more chances for a happy life in which they can escape poverty.

There were also children who are already at school but had a uniform that was completely worn out. They are proud now to be back in school in a beautiful new uniform.

Thanks to our sponsors!

On behalf of the children in Mpumalanga and our Board of the Zweli foundation in Netherlands and South Africa, we want to thank all the people of Business Mastery 2018 who donated. Your support is so valuable and has a direct positive impact on the lives of these children.

Become a regular sponsor of the Zweli Foundation

In addition to uniforms, Zweli also raises money for other projects: our kids clubs where children come after school for a meal, warmth and care, building houses for the aids orphans and emergency aid.

We are working on getting more regular sponsors, so that we can run our projects in a more sustainable way. Would you like to become a regular sponsor, knowing 100% goes to charity, please click here. Help us to help them!
