New Appeal for Homework Centre in South Africa!

We are excited to announce our first fundraising project for the Buffalo Flats Homework Centre, in South Africa!

Homework Centre

The Centre runs programmes which help underprivileged children with their school work. The Centre has asked CHW for funding for ten tables. The number of children who attend the Centre has more than doubled over the past few months, and so larger tables will help to seat the children more comfortably. The tables will be made locally, and each will be able to seat eight children, and will also have a rust-proof coating. It will cost three hundred and fifty seven pounds to fund the ten tables.

If you want to get involved with this project, there are three ways you can help:

1. Make a contribution. Please visit our ‘make a donation‘ page. We will be so grateful for any contribution which can help us reach the total needed!

2. Sponsor a table. If you want to sponsor the making of one table, this will cost £35.70. Please visit our ‘make a donation‘ page or email Catherine at, if you would like further details.

3. Spread the word! Please share this appeal on facebook, twitter, or any of your other social networks, so that more people will hear about the great work the Centre is doing, and will have the chance to contribute.

As well as this being our first time to fundraise for the Centre, this is also the first South African project we are supporting outside Cape Town! The Homework Centre is located in East London, in the Eastern Cape. Many thanks to Michelle Martin for introducing us to the Centre. Catherine from CHW was glad to have the chance to visit and we are really happy to support the Centre’s excellent work. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help us raise the money needed for the new tables!

Thanks to Irene, from the Centre, who has sent us some recent photos. More photos are below.
