Supporting South Africa

Two Sisters AIDS centre - Mpumalanga, White River, SA

Since 2008 we have been supporting the Two Sisters AIDS centre for orphans in South Africa through numerous projects, events and artistic performances to help raise awareness and support for the children there. We are working closely with Mr. Patrick Chamusso, a humble hero of South Africa and founder of Two Sisters whose life was depicted in the Hollywood movie Catch a Fire in 2006.

A heartfelt "Thank you" message to Dancing4Kids from Patrick Chamusso himself, for the support we are able to give to Two Sisters:


Activity Report

Activities driven by Dancing4Kids  to promote support and raise funds for Two Sisters

 

In collaboration with SACCJ we are currently accepting donations for the Two Sisters Quilting Machine project. Our target: 350,000 yen by Xmas 2012. 

Because of the great need they have to meet, Two Sisters cannot only depend on donations to get by. Therefore Two Sisters’ founder, Patrick Thibedi, has started various projects to enable the orphanage to generate supplementary income. One project that has shown a great deal of promise is their sewing project to produce and sell quilted products such as duvets and curtains.  This project aims to not only generate much-needed supplementary income for the orphanage, but also to enable the caretakers of Two Sisters to gain practical skills that they can use from now on.

This project was off to a good start with four sewing machines, purchased through the help of various donors including the SACCJ, to create the base products, and they have been able to make a small profit on the items they sell.  However, since Two Sisters lacks quilting machines of their own, they need to outsource the quilting process for an extra cost.  If they had a quilting machine to do this work themselves, their profit per item would increase tenfold.

Funds can be sent also through our the Dancing4Kids network here
