One of the netball teams of Llandovery College came to visit Goedgedacht as part of our International Tour Groups programme. They were with us for one day, arriving on 7 August and leaving the next day.
Thursday 28 September 2017 was a day of big excitement on the Goedgedacht farm. It is the day the much anticipated and much needed new Quantum arrived!
With thanks to our generous donors, the transport team, under leadership of Jeanne Thomas, was able to purchase a new Quantum by trading in one of our old vehicles and adding donations received from our vehicle appeal.
From June to August every year, Goedgedacht and the Path out of Poverty (POP) programme hosts a number of international schools and sports clubs from all over the globe.
The computer rooms at the Goedgedacht Youth Centres were planned with this vision in mind: Rooms filled with computers with groups of children hard at work doing their homework, other groups researching opportunities for University bursaries or looking at pictures of their dream car while another group of shrieking kids are playing a computer game which teaches them problem solving.
A container with 350 bicycles arrived on Goedgedacht farm on a wet and cold Friday in August. The staff working on the bicycle project were all very excited after waiting months for these bikes to arrive.
Easter has come to an end and I am filled with such gratitude to the Children from Springfield School in Cape Town who donated boxes of Easter Eggs to our POP children from the surrounding areas. Thank you so much for giving each child a taste of Easter.
We estimate that nine double decker buses full of children drown each year. We need to change the lives of children by giving them water safety lessons in a safe learning environment.
The Path out of Poverty (POP) programme seeks to transform rural communities, by offering the next generation of children the opportunity to become healthy, educated and self-confident. The aim is to produce young people who are able to take up leadership roles in their own communities.
