What is #GivingTuesday?
"The Best of the Lowveld" were the finalist chosen in different categories. Sinani was chosen as one of three finalist in the community service category. This category is described as any non-governmental, non-political, non-profit organisation, which focuses on the well-being, community outreach and development of the community or a representative sector of the community.
On Thursday - 11-13 October, Sinani hosted our Sinani Summit. It was a follow up to the first leadership conference we had in April. We used the first two days to equip & train from the foundation laid in April. This time, we had an ambitious goal of putting into practice what our leaders are learning. So, on Saturday, we brought 300 of our Sinani supported children from different communities to Zwelisha. We brought in Ready Set Go sports ministry from Cape Town to help lead the day.

Less than a year ago, Sinani underwent a relaunch. We laid out our vision and we are now blown away at how things have progressed this year! On August 30th we held our annual feedback meeting. Please take a few minutes to see what the Lord Has Done...

There is great momemtum in Sinani right now. Lots of things are happening! We've created a short video update to give you an idea of what is going on. We have lots of projects we need help with and as the video says, you are invited to play a part in the transformation of this region. We are very excited about what is going on and we hope you are too. There's much more we could have updated you on, but we wanted to keep it brief.

The Kids Worship Team @ CU are taking on a project... They are looking to provide 41 School Uniforms @ R550 per child for one of our Sinani communities. If you would like to help our kids help other kids, contact Anthea at: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the beginning of 2018, we made plans to send two of our Foundations for Farming (FfF) champs to Zimbabwe for an intense training time. They came back very excited to put into practice what they have learned so that our Sinani projects can benefit in many ways. There are so many exciting stories that have come from these efforts and harvest time is right around the corner for our first harvest. After subsidizing the fresh organic vegetables wtih the food provided for the children at the care points, we plan on bringing the produce to sell at Church Unlimited (C.U.) Nelspruit.
We put our sports ministry training into practice this week with over 100 laughing & cheering orphaned and vulnerable children in a community called Msholozi. For the day, these kids got to be kids, without a worry - while our team spread the gospel through the universal language of sports and play. It was great to see them slowly relax into just being themselves and allowing us to serve them and teach them. For the first time we had four other communities represented... helping serve children they didn't know... from a community they aren't from.
