Last month, Uplands Preparatory School partnered with Sinani to donate over 700 pairs of shoes! The staff and families of Uplands collected boys and girls shoes in all sizes, and pupils participated in a 'barefoot' day to help them understand in a small way what it's like to have less. The shoes are now being distributed through our Sinani centres, to those who need them. As you can see, the children are very excited about their new kicks!
For those of you that don’t know, we run an organization in South Africa called Sinani. We care for orphaned and vulnerable youth. Today is Youth Day in S.A. and June is Youth Month. We want to recognize our youth who overcome situations that are very difficult in a developing country. Some of the things they face need our help in order for them to succeed. Please enjoy this encouraging video and if you would like to play a part in changing a life for the better, please private message me. CLICK HERE: https://vimeo.com/563326305
After over a year without a place to meet, the children of Msholozi finally have a centre again! Around the time that lockdown began, the previous centre became unavailable, and so the team spent a year visiting the children in their homes, and engaging them in small groups for marimba and soccer practice. Now, after praying and searching , we have secured a wonderful building in the centre of Msholozi with enough room for marimba practice, homework help, and space to play.
Many matrics struggled due to COVID. Sinani held a 3 day mini-camp to help tutor matrics on the subjects they needed help with. Many of our young people do not have the resources to access online tools that would help them with some of the building blocks required. Besides that, school schedules have been sporadic - making it difficult to get in a rhythm of learning. If you have a heart to tutor, please contact us at 062-286-1800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

We've been planning and planning and waiting and waiting. Finally, the Sinani Premier League has taken off. The day was an amazing success. This wasn't any ordinary game day in Msholozi, this was the meeting of 105 young men who recieved full kits & soccer boots who were eager to get to the competition and glorify the Lord. The day started out in prayer as everyone gathered in the centre of the field and you could see the way the young men conducted themselves was different from "the norm.".
We've been busy building the Sinani soccer league since the begining of the year. We had a "soft launch" right before lockdown and knew we were on to something exciting. As lockdown loosened, we wanted to invest in the coaches so they were equipped and prepared to be role models to over 100 young men ages 15 - 17. The coaches clinic was a great success and we now have our sights set on our official launch 28 November in the community of Msholozi. If you would like to be involved and support this initiative, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No matter what your thoughts are about COVID-19, the lockdown aspect of it is causing many people to struggle. This is highlighted in the rural and under resourced communities we work in.
