Life saving donation – It is seldom that we are as fortunate as we were on Friday 23 May 2014.  We received a Life saving donation  THANK-YOU John Brunton and his wife for their donation towards our school project.  It has come just in time, as our funds have dwindled to an all time low.  Your donation was extremely generous and only after looking at your cheque a couple of times did it actually sink in!

Charity Donation by Rotary Oudtshoorn

Rotary Oudtshoorn takes hands with Zeekoegat Primary

Eyethrophy – 2014 – Zeekoegat Primary School Project : We at Safari are in the fortunate position of being involved with Zeekoegat Primary School Project and we are privileged to experience the good in people. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Jaco Kriek from Oudtshoorn Optometrists and the Union of Jewish Women, from Oudtshoorn. For making it possible for our 81 children at Zeekoegat Primary, to have their eyes tested at no charge by Jaco Kriek. This took up countless hours of Jaco’s time, which he so selflessly gave us. As a result he discovered 24 children that desperately needed reading glasses. Jaco Kriek provided these Reading Glasses at cost and the Union of Jewish Women paid for them. Now our children’s eyes are open and they can see all the possibilities lying ahead of them, life is no longer a blur. What a basic need to be able to see clearly but it was so far out of their reach before the Union of Jewish Women and Oudtshoorn Optometrists stepped in and reached out to our children at Zeekoegat Primary School.

Achievements since we started our Project : Since the start of our project on the 21st of October 2008 we have raised just over R300’000 – thank you to all the tourists and corporate institutions that have contributed to this wonderful amount over the last 5 years.

We have in the subsequent years spent the funds raised on the following;

Water & Electricity – R11’500, although the school gets a subsidy for Water and Electricity this unfortunately isn’t enough to cover the actual monthly accounts and due to the Smart Boards and Air-conditioning the school needed to upgrade their power supply from one phase to three phase power which is more costly and we assist them financially to cover these costs.
