2019 in Summary
2019 was an incredible year for UKAJEDE! Read all about it in the summary newsletter. Click here for more.
Happiness Creche has a new look! We're incredibly proud to provide the teachers and children with this secure and safe structure. It was through the incredible support of Schauenburg International Group that this was possible.
The upgrade to Happiness Creche is nearly complete and the children are now in a safer, more comfortable environment that in the wooden shack that they previously used as a classroom and kitchen.
We have re-registered 19 learners into Balmoral College. Without the support of The People for Ukajede Foundation, these children would otherwise not be able to attend the school. Balmoral has achieved 100% matric pass rate for the last decade. These children are unfortunately raised under extremely difficult circumstances and this excellent educational opportunity gives them hope for a better future. We are very proud of these learners who are taking this opportunity very seriously and are working hard to achieve good results! This year 2 of the sponsored learners are in Matric and we are very excited for them.
We were incredibly appreciative of the initiative taken by Birchwood Hotel & OR Tambo Conference Centre, Huddle Up, Santa's Shoebox and Busby Promo where eight of our creches were treated to stunning Christmas gifts to light up the children's faces.
We're overwhelmed as we announce that we've officially received the largest donation in UKAJEDE's history. Courtesy of Schauenburg International Group, we received R520,000 which will be used for various projects, such as building a brick structure at Happiness Creche for children who are currently schooled in a wooden shack, toys and stationery, as well as helping 19 children attend Balmoral College. Words cannot express our gratitude for this unbelievable gift! Thank you!
