“There is no future without children and without children there is no future. Every population has its share of children. It is these same children that will provide the solutions to tomorrow’s challenges.”
Dimphonyana Tsa Lapeng, established initially as a place of safety for children in Gauteng, now serves as a foster home. The Little gifts of home aims to provide the children with academic support and mentorship in the hopes that the children will one day become influencers of social change.
The current climate in South Africa is one where many children are faced with many uncertainties regarding the continuation of their primary education. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of the centre’s programmes were put on hold. The organisation adjusted their plans and decided to set up a homework centre in the hopes of helping the children’s education despite of the challenges posed by Covid-19.
The PsySSA Student Division is grateful to have been able to assist Dimphonaya in setting up the homework centre. The Mighty Pen campaign aimed to raise funds and collect new items of stationery for the centre. PsySSA SD thanks you for your generous donations in ensuring that these little gifts of home continue to support and build our future.
