VUYA Foundation focuses on assisting those of our communities who need that bit of assistance to achieve their goals. These goals usually focus on improving their standard of living, completing or furthering their education, and helping other’s in their families or communities.
In our success stories section we will share with you some of the stories of those we at VUYA Foundation have assisted or are still assisting with recognising their dreams.
We looked forward to sharing many more of these success stories with you going forward and updating you on developments around some of the success stories that we have already shared.
The Oppie Koppie Creche, Vuya Foundation early childhood facility, in Prince Alfred Hamlet, near Ceres, hosted its 3rd market/social in August.
In May of this year the Vuya Foundation's COO, Dez Jansen, embarked on a mission abroad to spread the word about the great work that the Vuya Foundation is doing. Dez, using his contacts as the past president of the Pinelands Rotary Club, managed to contact fellow Rotary members in the maple-leafed country of Canada to coordinate a series of presentations.
Upon arrival guests were met with a number of traditional African songs performed by the Zimasa Primary school choir. The festivities were led by renowned MC Andre du Toit while Andre Petersen, Vuya Foundation's very own jazz piano genius, performed for the audience with his band. His wife Chantal was along-side him on stage playing double bass.
The story of Oppie Koppie Kindergarden was birthed out of the realisation of a drastic need and our strong desire to meet that need.
