Friends, Partner and a Heart for Education



“Education is the strongest weapon to change the world” were the powerful words of Nelson Mandela. We fully agree and believe that education is a big factor in order to see a new generation grow up i 7de Laan.

But we cannot shoulder this huge responsibility on our own – a network of partners and friends has developed over the years. Amongst those is the Freundeskreis Wakkerstroom e.V that we shared more about in September 2016.

The German NGO supports children and youth in South Africa in their academic journey. Through their personal connection with our staff Marco and Justine a partnership developed with HOSA too.

We want to extend a huge THANK YOU to the Freundeskreis Wakkerstroom, who has just visited us in March 2017 and has given us the joyful news of their financial support for the salaries of our HOPE School teachers and school principle until July 2018!

We are excited to see their enthusiastic involvement and that the children and their education is clearly close to their heart. We are looking forward to many more years of a fruitful partnership.
