Our Fundraisers

Thank you to the Artjamming team for a wonderful fun-filled day. The children were given the opportunity to express their creativity and imagination artistically and had an absolute ball.
Visit their website at www.artjamming.co.za







Thank you to the staff of Bidvest Bank in Cape Town for the wonderful end-of- year picnic event arranged in the Green Point Urban Park for the children in December 2012. The children had an amazing time.



A warm thank you to all the employees at Compuware Ltd in Maidenhead, United Kingdom for their fundraising activities. All the money donated will be going towards building of the new Center.



A warm thank you to Pick n Pay in Cape Town for the wonderful events that Ncedolwethu was invited to, such as the Easter Party and Ratanga Junction Theme Park event. The children had a wonderful time!



Sisanda FunDaytion, which is a volunteer-based non-profit organisation that makes a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children in South Africa by providing them with Fun Days and other recreational opportunities have invited Ncedolwethu on a number of fun day outings.

If you would like to get involved and volunteer and Sisanda’s outings please visit their website


Thank you to Truworths for the fun-filled outing arranged in collaboration with Sisanda for Ncedolwethu to Muizenberg in March 2013. Many of the children had never had the opportunity to visit Muizenberg before and thoroughly enjoyed the outing in the sun and water.

Please visit Sisanda FunDaytion for more event information.



A big thank you to TSiBA Alumni for arranging an Easter Party for Ncedolwethu. Lots of fun and treats were enjoyed by all.



A sincere thank you to Vital Health and its employees in Cape Town for their continued support over the years. The children absolutely loved the gum boots you dropped off for them.




A very big thank you to Woolworths in Cape Town for their contribution towards our fund raising efforts to build a new Centre. Your support is much appreciated.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Gea Schmidt, a long term sponsor and friend from the Netherlands, for all her kindness and support over the years.
Gea tells her story:

I met Florence Dodovu in 1998 for the first time. My husband, my daughter and I visited her, accompanied by a teacher from the University of the Western Cape in Mfuleni, when she still lived in a shack made of wood. There she took already care of a group of small children.

In 1999 we stayed for a longer period in Cape Town and I had the opportunity to meet her several times. We went shopping and had lunch together. We even organised a Christmas party, with a ‘real’ Dutch Father Christmas, presents and music (songs and guitar by our son). Since then I kept in contact with Florence and donated money frequently. Whenever I was in South Africa we met, and I could buy her groceries and other things that she needed, like a mobile phone. I also sent Christmas presents every year for the children.

In 2009 I contacted ‘helping hands’ for her, for fundraising. I feel proud of the good work Florence is doing and support she is receiving from her friends Niki and Martin. The last time I saw her was in 2009, but my daughter visited het this year when she spent her holidays in SA. From the Netherlands I will keep on sending donations
