The Mvula Trust celebrates Mandela Day with kids

As part of its Mandela Day activities, The Mvula Trust visited Home of Joy day-care centre to donate food parcels, toys and other goods. The centre is located in Etwatwa near Springs in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. It takes care of approximately forty (40) kids from underprivileged families and their age ranges from three (3) months to six (6) years of age, and some of them are brought to the crèche without food because their parents are either unemployed or rely on the centre for provision.   Handing over the goods to the centre, Chief Operations Officer at The Mvula Trust, Julia Mmushi said: “Mandela subjected his life to detention for the sake of our freedom. He was a selfless and kind – hearted man. It is for this reason that we have to be his agents of change.” The Mvula Trust staff played with kids and showed them love during the event. Appreciating this wonderful gesture, children also sang beautiful songs and danced for the guests. “I am grateful to you The Mvula Trust for assistance. Our centre was struggling with provision of food to the kids. We feel privileged to be visited by you today,” said Doris Sukazi, head of the crèche. Let the spirit of Mandela Day activities continue to positively impact... read more

Touching Lives through a Hand of Goodwill

The Mvula Trust staff in our KwaZulu Natal – South office held a ceremony on the 07 March 2016 to hand over miscellaneous items to Avoca Primary School.

It was in June 2015 when Trevor and other staff members noticed challenges the school and learners were going through on daily basis. Moved by compassion, Trevor and the team embarked on a campaign to collect school shoes and other merchandise to address a plight at this resource – stricken school. “The school does not recover much money from school fees, and as a result they find it difficult to provide basic requirements to the kids. It is an ideal school to assist,” says Trevor. Most learners attending at the school are from destitute households; desperately struggling to make ends meet. As a result kids are taught without basic learning tools or proper school uniforms, which could affect their performance. The effort was intensified earlier this year to bring more partners on board. Inspired by the initiative, businesses and establishments such as Mini Owners Club in KwaZulu Natal, Rap Footwear, KM Connect and Computer Supply Store responded positively. They donated items, for instance: ceiling fans, school shoes, stationery, computers as well as sanitary and cleaning material. The principal at the Avoca Primary School could not withhold his emotive words of appreciation to The Mvula Trust and businesses that contributed towards the success of the initiative. “Such a noble gesture does not happen so often and it was... read more
