Lucky Point had challenging times during Corona, which defined our – and the children's – lives. But people here are resilient to all the changes and challenges.
Elizabeth and Claudia visit Switzerland sponsored by one of our Friends who visited our project in Botrivier and were impressed by the tremendous work.
With great excitement the line began to grow longer. More and more children chattered to one another waiting for the doors to open for our Christmas party.
We normally take the kids for a day at the beach just before the new school year in the Western Cape starts in the middle of January.
In line with the beginning of the new school year in South Africa, our after-school care at New France also reopened in January.
Before the December summer holidays, we took 20 of our youngest Crèche kids to an exciting playground designed especially for younger children.
Similar to last year – and because the children enjoyed it so much – we once again took 30 children on a trip to the De Hoop Nature Reserve in March 2017.
Two containers – both packed with clothing, gifts and goods donated by our friends – arrived from Switzerland. Their generosity is absolutely amazing!
The Ambassador of Switzerland Ms Helene Budliger Artieda, together with her husband, were keen to learn all about the Lucky Point Recycling concept and all our other projects we run in Botrivier.
Although the bureaucracy frustrations may mount, it does not deter us from achieving our final goal and we will continue to overcome the red tape.
It was both an exciting but also intense year for Lucky Point. We grew stronger and our influence amongst the community continues to grow.
