Bambanani, Growing dreams
What if you do not know if you have something to eat in the morning? If you’re scared and you do not know what time your parents will be home? Then there’s little room for beautiful dreams of the future … And that’s exactly what we give them! That’s why: Bambanani, Growing dreams! A good start to a better life. Take a look at some of our beautiful projects below.
A private water supply by means of a “borehole” is a huge step towards sustainable self-sufficiency. Because then the school will become independent of the municipal water supply and there will no longer be a need to fill water tanks. What’s more, the school’s own well will provide enough water for the daily food and drink intake, the sanitary facilities and the vegetable garden.
In recent months Bambanani has drilled for water at four schools. With 89 schools we are still a long course, but thanks to our sponsors, we are taking steps. You can help us! A new well will cost about € 5000. Will you help us?
Every Bambanani school with a gardener ...
Having your own gardener for the food supply is an indispensable link in all of this. A crucial link for schools. Many of these schools unfortunately do not have that money. In fact, there are still many schools where the whole team consists of volunteers. Volunteers who have to ‘add’ the garden to their daily job, while they already have their hands full with the children. As a result, investments in school gardens, tunnels food and water supplies are far from being put to good use everywhere.
A successful test was carried out at the Pfukani school. Rachel, our female gardener, has a beautiful vegetable garden from where food can be eaten daily.
By appointing a fulltime gardener at other schools, harvesting can be expanded further. By selling that extra harvest, the school gets a structural source of income of its own. In the long run, this income will be more than sufficient is for the salary of the gardener.
Food program the ‘Food Circle’
Children are still dying of malnutrition. How nice would it be if we could ban this disease from ‘our’ schools! For an average of € 750 per year, all children at a school Bambanani can eat varied and healthy food for a year. For individual donors quite a lot of money. But if we would set up circles of donors, with everyone donating € 10 a month … Then it would only take six people to providence food for an entire school. Do you embrace this initiative? Then start your own Food circle together with your family, colleagues, friends, neighbors or sports team.

Ofentse is 5 years old. This makes him one of the most vulnerable age group in the South African townships. Because the government does not regulate anything for children between 0 and 6 years old. No safe shelter, no schools, no healthy food or clean drinking water. A future as a pilot very far away!
Maureen's lucky. She's going to a Day Care Center. Unfortunately, a lot of friends have not so lucky leg. They hang around on the street. Have to help in the house or on the land. Also she night fall victim to child abuse and malnutrition. If life becomes survival, dreams have little chance.

Above are dreams of South African children from the province of Limpopo, in the Phalaborwa region. They live in poor township like Mashishimale, Namakgale and Lulekani, where 63% of the population lives below the poverty line and 1 in 4 suffers from HIV-AIDS. The children hardly have access to food or clean water, there is a lack of good schools … In these circumstances, a future as a pilot or nurse seems far away. And that’s where Bambanani offers help; growing dreams. We do this by offering the most vulnerable children in these townships a safe and healthy day care.
