Weʼre raising £500 to for the 'Arise N' Shine' Children's Creche in Khayelitsha, South Africa.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
'Arise 'N Shine' is a registered non profit organisation in South Africa, that provides an after school facility for children and youth in the local area of Khayelitsha, South Africa. Nombulelo Manqoyi (Bulie) manages this project, often from her small home, and is in urgent needs of some more funds to continue to rent a unit, provide food and educational activities of the children and youth in the area. Having such a facility provides a safe environment for children to go after school where they can spend time with other children, have food and do some extra educational and fun activities. If they didn't have this facility many children would not have a place to go before their parent/s get home from work and are in danger of getting involved with some of the local social issues, such as crime and gangs.
If you any questions about Arise 'N Shine please do not hesitate to contact me. For anyone based in South Africa I can also put you in touch directly with Nombulelo.
