Out Reach Program
Sizanane LSEN School Program
Since 2011, the Kungwini Dream Fund has been closely aligned with the Sizanane School for Learners with Special Educational Needs (LSEN) in providing health, educational, therapeutic and sporting and recreational provisions for improving the educational and health conditions at the school. Classrooms for woodwork, arts and crafts, hairdressing, knitting and embroidery, welding, and sports were extensively supplied and supported. Mobility aids, sports uniform, bags and shoes, educational toys and medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and devices are continually provided.
Sizanane Educators and Staff Appreciation Program
Every year, the staff of the Sizanane School for Learners with Special Educational Needs (LSEN) are honored for their dedication and devotion to caring for the children. Their services are humanitarian and so the Kungwini Dream Fund provides each staff with grocery gift vouchers worth a month of groceries at the beginning of the school year. Laptop computers are awarded annually to the highest achieving educators.
Alphonso Project and the construction of the ‘CANADA HOUSE’ in 2020
During a routine medical call to a children’s shelter, a request was made for building a bedroom for an overnight supervisor for the 50 children sleeping in 2 small rooms. Instead, the Kungwini Dream Fund constructed the ‘Canada House’ that has comfortable 4 large bedrooms, multiple shower stalls and toilets, a library, a kitchen, a TV room, a medical room and storage rooms. This was fortunately completed in time before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kindergarten Project 2019
A visit to ‘Dark City’ (a poverty-stricken neighborhood of Kungwini) uncovered the Thuto Pele Children’s Crèche with 300 toddlers and children in need of toys, clothing, blankets, educational supplies, books, heaters for the classrooms and a playing area. The Kungwini Dream Fund provided for all the needs including developing a playfield with brick paving. Warm winter clothing obtained from Canada were supplied.
Establishing the ‘Kungwini Dream Fund– South Africa’ 2019
A branch of the Kungwini Dream Fund was officially registered in South Africa as a non-profit organisation (NPO) to manage the funds locally, instead of carrying funds personally from Canada. This will benefit us by gaining a tax exemption of 15% (VAT) for all services.
