Charity: Rachael Tembo, Jo’burg Child Welfare
I started the year with preparation of schedules and plans of the OVC Forum for the year 2013. We resolved that we will consistently update our OVC Forum members well ahead of our monthly meetings and other relevant events. I made calls, send emails and SMS for our upcoming meetings.
It was great to see the grannies and the children at Othandweni centre this year. The sad part is that some of the children left the centre as they were reunited with their families, adopted or went for foster care so the grannies had to be allocated new children. These lovely kids will be greatly missed.
I collected data for the Granny program evaluation last year so this year I started data entry and report writing. This month, I spend so much time in the office focusing on data entry and report writing. I am finalising the report and will hopefully submit it next week.
JCW received a donation of furniture from Vodacom and it was distributed to the centres and staff members this month after the refurbishment of JCW head office. Thank you Vodacom for the furniture, we really appreciate your support.
I am excited that I am on target with my project plan and all is on track.
