This project is getting off the ground. :D We have permission to go ahead.

I'm waiting for the Wishlist to arrive and will let you know what is needed.

I will coordinate this from Europe as I'm sure there are many Europeans who would like to contribute items.

I need somebody in South Africa to coordinate it from there. :D Anybody interested in helping?

This will be an ongoing effort since items are always needed. :D

Let's help make a difference. :gflower:

Wonderful news Guinea Pig - thank you so much !! I am happy to coordinate things from the Cape Town end seeing as I do that for the clothing drive already ..... maybe someone from Gauteng will volunteer to do the same, then we have most bases covered :thumbs_up:

Jannie will soon be posting the Wishlist.

It's important that we do this absolutely by the book. If you would like to donate any items to the school please first PM me (Europe), Scouter (Cape Town) or ctv4 (Pretoria), so we know exactly what was given by whom and we have it on record.

If anybody from KZN and the Eastern Cape would like to help, that would be most welcome. 8)

Morning all, it is absolutely heart warming to see how many of the mites are interested in assisting with Tsamma land and help us to help the kids. After talks we have come up with the following wish list:

Empty 2L bottles, Empty toilet rolls ( we will be using the carton on the inside), empty egg holders (packaging which the eggs come in).
Any of the following: Kraft paper, paint, crayons, pipe cleaners aprons, glue scissors a ice cream sticks cotton wool. old news papers, paper plates. maybe a lose carpet which is not in use anymore educational posters curtains, any old toys.

If any mites could assist with the following or know somebody who cans it would be appreciated:

Small Mattresses for the kids to sleep on during the day. Nappy changing table. If someone has an old PC and printer they don’t use it will be helpful to keep records

I know it is a lot but we are getting this off the ground only with a building.

Thanks so much in advance for all the assistance.


KG

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum but have been reading topics and following travel tales for many years, mostly with great amusement and fellow feeling!
My SO and I are going to KTP in July (from 21st - this will be our 12th visit) so would be delighted to take any equipment for the Tsamma Land creche. We are in the Durbanville, Cape Town area so I should perhaps PM Scouter a week or so before we go (I see Scouter will be there in 4 days) to see if we can help. Looking forward to becoming a more active member of this wonderful forum.

Thx SandyS for offering!

I think one of the biggest problems will be to get all the donations to Twee Rivieren!

Jannie, is it possible for you to collect from Upington if we can get stuff to Upington with a courier?

And Jannie, why not start a recycling process in the park to collect all the 2 litre bottles?

That will teach the kids something as well!

Hi SandyS and a very warm welcome to the Forum on this rather chilly Cape Town morning :gflower:

Thanks so much for offering to help - I am sure there will be lots of 'mites who would like to contribute and I'm more than happy to take a drive through to you before you leave to drop anything off that needs going. I'm taking the first lot of glues, crayons, pencil crayons, scissors etc up with me now but I know its going to be an on-going need for supplies so the more we can get up there, the more kids will have equipment, especially for the holiday program they are wanting to run :D

Thanks so much - will def be in touch !!

On a tech forum I am a member of I requested a laptop. I did get some (positive) replies, as well as the offer of a complete system with printer and soundsystem etc. That offer I had to decline, no way we can bring that over on the plane. :cry:
No other luck so far, but we only fly out in December, so there is still time.

@ctv4,

We do indeed pick up from Upington, I will send you a PM regarding an address we use where packages can be dropped of and we will then arrange for it to be picked up.

Regarding the recycling...this is also on the cards and just need to get past a few logistical problems but will be up and running quite soon.

Thanks everyone for the support

Regards

KG
