A few projects in Mabopane, a township in the neighborhood of Pretoria, have started in 2005 under the name of Lesedi la Batho. (light for the people). Till the end of 2010 SACares for life have ruled the scepter in this area but at the moment the local people are running it themselves.
At the end of 2009 Els, Petra-Nella and Saskia visited the area and decided to raise a foundation and it has run for over a year now. In the Netherlands a lot of activities are organised to raise money for the foundation.
Besides that they are going ones in every two years to South Africa to see with their own eyes what is happening with the projects and which projects they can support more.
Seeing such great people working together for a beautiful and great cause, made me realise I really would like to add something.
So that's why I have decided to donate a part of my greetingcards sellings to the foundation. € 2,50 of every greetingcardset will be donated to the Sizani foundation. I have placed 5 new sets in the shop. So if you are curious just klick here or on the photo in the right corner. If you find it difficult to order by Etsy you can always mail me in personal and I will give you the information you need. You can find the mailadress on the contact page.
It was a great day with great people. Lots of games for the children. Very good african food and a great djembe workhop. The faces of the children were beautiful painted and glitter tatoo's were favorite. The day turned into a big succes.

This is one of the new greetingcardsets. Just like the warm colours of africa but in my own garden.
