We Care!!

During 2013 Olive Schreiner adopt the Little Flower pre-school and have been visiting the school every Friday to read, colour-in and help teachers.  The students have also generated funds to buy items like floor mats and books for the school


Schreiner visited old age homes, took cards and served tea and biscuits on Mothers' Day.  They also helped clean up the home and helped prepare their meals.


They also started helping at a high school, tutoring matriculants on a weekly basis.


Schreiner has also started helping at the Siyazama Gardening Projects, assisting where needed on a weekly basis


As a result of the above Schreiner won the Hall Community Engagement Award for 2013.  This relationship still continues and grows.
