The Giften Hope Foundation (formerly Helping Hands 786) formed when a group of ordinary, caring people decided to do their bit of good in this world.
Our mission is to:
- Uplift those in need
- Build a community
- Make a difference
South Africa is a country riddled with poverty, neglect of the aged and the young, lack of suitable education facilities and lack of basic education to the masses. With the help of sponsors, volunteers and communities banding together, the Gifted Hope Foundation brings hope in the form of food and educational assistance and other various community initiatives.
The Foundation consists of people willing to dedicate their time and services to obtain sponsors and funding to undertake projects that will improve the lives of communities that need it the most.
2018 will see us undertaking our biggest project yet: Renovations to Carrington Primary School in Stellawood Road, Umbilo. Heavy rains and wind has resulted in major damage to the school, with certain classrooms being destroyed completely. The school has 785 learners, majority of who come from townships and surrounding informal settlements: Cato Manor, Chesterville, Bonella and Umlazi. Parents of the children cannot afford to pay school fees, therefore the school cannot attend to the repairs that is badly needed. The classrooms are unsafe as the roofs are collapsing, there are big holes in the floors and broken windows.
The school has converted the kitchen into a classroom and have built a makeshift kitchen, so that
the children can get their meal for the day. Despite numerous pleas to the Department of Education for assistance, no help has been forthcoming. The school has now called on the community and charities for assistance in rebuilding.
Besides the renovations, Gifted Hope Foundation will embark on a literacy project at the school. We intend setting up a mobile library and getting books donated for the children to read.
