"Full Meal..." Christmas Party

Sonwabise Tese is a community outreach initiated and run by two ECD trained community workers, Barbara Chisvo and Yandiswa Mazwane.

Zimbabwean-born Barbara speaks of a time in her life when being involved in the girl guide movement impacted her deeply and imparted very necessary and essential skills into her own life. The two colleagues saw the need in their local community of Masiphumelele in Cape Town, South Africa, to reach out and to offer to mentor young women and to impart the skills and wisdom necessary for living life well.

For the past two years, the two have met on Saturday afternoons with a group of between 30 to 60 young girls to play, share, teach, mentor and build deep, caring relationships together. They have also been supplying certain of the girls with toiletries and sanitary products on a monthly basis. The group is growing larger and, with that, the need.

At a recent meeting, the girls were asked what they would most like for Christmas. The pair were blown away when the overwhelming answer to their question was “a full meal”. To be able to choose between meat and veg and to be able to eat till they felt full. With all of their hearts, these ladies would like to make this dream become a reality for these precious young girls.

The Christmas party will be held on Sat 2 December. If you would like to partner with them in making this dream become a reality, you may do so in any if the following ways:

Make a financial donation to the following account (were collecting on their behalf):

Victory Church Cape Town
FNB Fish Hoek
Acc No: 50210007099
Branch Code: 202309

(NB: Ref “Full Meal”)

Donate ingredients or cooked food on the day.

  • Approach potential sponsors on their behalf. We will need food, drinks, decor, cutlery, crockery for 60 to 80 people.
  • Volunteer to help on the day (cooking, decor, serving, cleaning)

In addition, we have some other fun ideas for these precious young ladies...

Care Packs

We’re hoping to be able to put together a “care pack” for each girl to see her through the holiday period consisting of the following items:

  • 1 x Deodorant
  • 1 x pack Sanitary towels
  • 2 x Facecloths
  • 1 x Soap
  • 1 x Toothbrush
  • 1 x Toothpaste
  • 1 x body lotion

We would once again welcome financial donations into the account mentioned above (Ref: Care Packs) or donations of the actual items. There will be a collection basket placed at Sandy’s Bistro in Valyland Fish Hoek for this purpose.

Swim Suits

Lastly, on a recent beach outing it became clear that none of the girls owned a swimming costume, so we’re appealing for gently worn second-hand swimming costumes and clothing (age 10 upwards). We plan to give each girl a voucher at the party where she may go and “shop” for a swimming costume and one or two donated items to take home with her. Once again, items may be placed into the collection basket at Sandy’s Bistro in Valyland Fish Hoek.
