The Sechaba Support Project, organised by the Rotary Club of Morningside and in association with the Early Care Foundation aims to raise over R300,000 to support the feeding scheme run by the Diepsloot Oratile Center a registered NPO. The centre provides support to the 90 educators and their families who are without income during the lockdown, as well as providing meals to 400 people per day from the Diepsloot community.
Abram Kgari, the Principle of the DOC and chairman of the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Forum in Diepsloot along with a team of 5, are supporting the people of Diepsloot. The initiative began with Abram spending the last R1200 of his savings to buy food and prepare meals for the educators in his area who no longer earned an income. The need grew and Abram, through his ingenuity and hard work, was able to raise funds to feed 400 people from Monday to Friday and provide support to the 90 educators and their families. The program now provides 8,000 meals per month at a cost of R2.25 per meal – an astonishing achievement.
The Sechaba Support Project is raising funds and providing support to the DOC.
