Way 2 – 10 Ways to make a Difference at Elukholweni Farm School

Over the next 10 days, I’ll be sharing some ideas with you on ’10 Ways to Make a Difference’.

Each Day, one idea.

ONEList Elukholweni Farm School on your MySchool Card as a beneficiary.

TWO: Give Just 1 Hour

Elukholweni Class

Quite recently the J1H-movement was launched in our city.

It is inspiring.

They say J1H: ‘is a call to action to transform our city by giving JUST1HR every month.  The energy we could generate, with 1 million people doing JUST1HR per month of voluntary service, adds up to 114 years per month.’

So I invite you: why not give 1 hour of your time to Elukholweni Farm School?

You can come teach computer classes.

Or train chess.

Or coach soccer.

Or help with the pre-schoolers.

Or do art classes.

Or music classes.

Or home economics.

Or maybe a ‘finishing-school’ project.

Maybe you could come teach maths or science.

The entire school have only two full time teachers.

Perhaps your 1 hour can help with feeding the kids.

Or maybe you’re a psychologist or councilor – imagine the difference you can make by giving 1 hour on a regular basis to counsel grade 6 & 7 pupils as they emerge into teenage-hood & look towards high school.

The only problem with giving 1 hour each month – soon you’ll fall in love with these kids & start giving an hour each week.

Maybe you were fortunate enough to do sport at school, or music, or finish high school, or earn a Diploma or Degree – I think if that is you, you’ve got something you can offer?

Imagine 160 of us doing a relay at Elukholweni.

We’ll add a value to the lives of these children from one day to the next.

And in the process you & I will become more.

As we make a difference.

As we give these children the edge they so desperately desire.
