Our trip with the sponsors from Sweden was a big success! We discovered Johannesburg, took a bike tour in Soweto, visited Vineyards in Stellenbosch, learned Capetown and visited Cape of Good Hope.
But the highlight was of course when we met our Dandelion kids i Hluhluwe, and made an excursion together to Cape Vidal. An unforgettable memory for everybody. Here we are all gathered on the Indian Ocean beach, which most of the kids never had seen before…
It took almost a year, but now we have it – the Dandelion car!
We have learned that everything takes a little bit longer in South Africa. To be able to rent this car for a long time, among other things, company records and signatures of all Board members were required…
That’s why Nokwe, Anders, Noluthando and Kjell look so happy!
Every schoolyear, Nokwe and Noluthando from Star for Life gather all our caretakers in the Dandelion project for a seminar in Hluhluwe. In addition to Nokwe and Noluthando informing about our project, lectures from the police, schools, goverment authorities etc are invited to give relevant information. For many of the caretakers, this could be the only opportunity to visit the small town of Hluhluwe, and they all come in their finest clothes.
This time Kjell and Anders could participate, and here you can see all of them together.
Our coach Nokwe is doing an excellent job down i South Africa, On a monthly basis she delivers foodpackages to our children and their families, and also visit their schools where she talks to the teachers and the principals.
Here you can see Nokwe together with Anders in the school yard outside one of our schools.
