FAIR CAPE CARES FOUNDATION DONATES 100L TO THE BREAKFAST CLUB
This milk donation assists The Breakfast Club with their amazing charitable work they do daily at the Good Hope Seminary Junior School. The Breakfast Club was founded by Aletta Ashmore (Learning Support Educator) and Patsy Bagraim (Shine Volunteer) when they realised the need for a feeding scheme at the school, as hungry children cannot learn effectively and this was the start of The Breakfast Club in February 2016.
In 2016 The Breakfast Club feed E’Pap and fruit breakfasts to 75 Grade 1’s.As funding came in, they rolled out the program to Grade R, then to one class after the other. Now the whole school is offered breakfast. This means that 400 Learners (Grade R-7) are fed each school morning.
The majority of children that attend the school travel into the city from Khayelitsha, Delft or even Hout Bay, waking up as early as 4 am to catch transportation at 5 am ensuring that they are at school on time. This means that most children have not eaten or had anything to drink before leaving home and are hungry by the time school starts at 8 am.
E-Pap highly nutritious food developed by Dr Basil Kransdorff to boost HIV positive and TB patients. It has been found to be highly beneficial to those who are economically needy and thus poorly fed.
75% of the Grade 1 Maths and English 2016 results were BETTER than those in 2014 & in 2015.
25% of our Gr 2’s do not eat or drink before leaving home.
