Friday, September 13th, 2013

Uthando is VERY pleased to announce that LIVINGSTONE SAFARIS has committed R40 000.00 to the development of the organic vegetable garden located at the Isikhokelo Primary School in Khayelitsha to be started and run Xolisa Bangani. Earlier this year 50 trees (many fruits trees) were planted at the school with Greenpop / Ripples of Hope and Uthando. The garden will complement the trees and form an educational and very beneficial element to the school and community.

Cape Town Tourism Responsible Tourism Award – Official Ceremony

Monday, July 29th, 2013

In May 2013 at Indaba Travel Trade Show members of the national and international tourism industry voted for Uthando which went on to win the Cape Town Tourism Responsible Tourism Award for 2013. On Saturday the 27th of July Cape Town Tourism accompanied Uthando to visit the recipient projects and see first hand where the prize money was spent.

Betterchoice Gumboots Dance Project received their new sponsored uniforms. This will enable the group to perform gigs and generate income for themselves. See before and after photographs.

Dance For All received an educational grant for one of their gifted children. We visited Dance for All studios and were lucky to see the rehearsals for the Artscape Theatre evening being held this weekend.

Uthando is enormously grateful for the incredible support from so many people in the tourism industry, these initiatives are providing life changing opportunities for these children.

Nico and Corry Hooijmaaijer

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

I had the great pleasure of spending time with Nico and Corry Hooijmaaijer once again in Cape Town this month. Since 2008, Nico and Corry, together with their children and the Mitialto Foundation in Belgium, have been enormously supportive of Uthando and specifically Kiddies Educare, Dance for All and Neighbourhood Old Age Homes (NOAH). Uthando would like to thank them for their love and generosity over the years. In the photo is Petra from GRS Tours, which has also been a loyal and generous support to Uthando since its inception.
