QUNU Cafe - our own Reception and Coffee shop

Shortly after the Centre's 20th Celebrations the HBCCA Management Committee

gave the green-light for the installation of a Reception / Coffee shop in the Main Hall to

enable us to cater better for the needs of the many visitors that cross Iziko Lobomi's thresholds

 every day. Part of an existing store room was partitioned off and an area was created for our

new 'baby'.

During the beginning of December several candidates from the local community

were interviewed and two women were shortly afterwards appointed as Hospitality Receptionists.

 

The big day was on 19 December 2016, shortly after the commencement of the annual shut-down of the Centre

for the Christmas holiday period. Right from the first day the Cafe was very popular with all the visitors.

To cover the costs of our staff it was required for us to charge a small entrance fee to all

visitors. This entrance fee enables the Association to provide employment for two previously

unemployed mothers and at the same time provides much needed additional income to help cover

our monthly expenses. This initiative is a BIG step in making Iziko Lobomi more

self-sustainable and less reliant on donations and grants.

Iziko Lobomi gets a face-lift for her 20th Birthday

The front entrance of Iziko Lobomi received a much needs upgrade in the past three months.

With funds received from Gartner Africa a new wheelchair ramp could be built together with

an overall upgrade of the main entrance steps and surrounding areas. This was a very

fitting upgrade in preparation to the much anticipated 20th Anniversary Celebrations

which will take place at Iziko Lobomi on the 20th October 2016.

Imizamo Yethu Church leaders get together to pray

for upcoming Municipal Elections on 3 Aug 2016

At a joint meeting on Wednesday the 27th July 2016 between the church leaders of

the Imizamo Yethu community a unanimous voice went out for a joint prayer

meeting to be held where prayers could be offered to God for peaceful

and successful Municipal elections.

On Sunday 31st July 2016 this meeting became a reality when a large group

of leaders and church members convened at Iziko Lobomi for more than three hours

praying for all parties involved with the elections. The spirit of unity among everyone present

 was tangible and the event was a real blessing for everyone that attended it.
