Makes a Plan Comes Together
Our Lecture Room / Play School Project which was launched exactly twelve months ago became a reality last Friday on the 3rd of August 2018 because of an ABSOLUTE EXTRAORDINARY team effort from our supporters - both local and abroad.
Six main sponsors made one of the biggest upgrades in our Centre possible and the end-result speaks for itself!
Donations from as far as Australia (Oscar and Phyllis Visagie), the Netherlands (the Prins family) and the United Kingdom (Super Team - Natalie, Rosanna and Chloe) together with local donations from the St. Peter's Anglican Church and longtime loyal supporters Rene' and Michelle Jacobs, Gartner SA and the many willing and hard-working men from Imizamo Yethu.
Only the future will tell of the number of men and women, young and old, whose lives will be impacted positively by this new facility.
The pictures below will give you an idea of the full extent of this project and how it came to pass, but to truly appreciate it, we recommend that you undertake to come and see it in real life and see the real people using it and benefiting from it.
Thank you again to all of our sponsors for your priceless contributions!
Natalie Smith and her two friends Chloe Griffiths and Rosanna Bryan from the United
Kingdom proved that raising funds for Iziko Lobomi's Play School is not for the faint hearted!
The three of them ran almost 22 kilometers and raised the huge amount of R20,000
towards costs for the upgrade of the Play School. Marion Franke, (HBCCA's secretary), is
Natalie's aunt and Natalie became aware of the need for a much needed upgrade of the
Play School children's room on a visit to the Centre earlier this year.
What can we say? This effort is so heart-warming and words cannot properly describe
how much this type of sacrificial giving means to us at the HBCCA.
Thank you very much and may God bless each one of you richly!

The Launch and Official opening of the new Study Centre took place on
Friday evening the 15th of June 2018. Two thousand flyers were distributed at
five schools in Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg during the week.
Learners were encouraged to take
part in a Study Centre competition with 24 prizes valued at R2,200
The drawing of the prizes took place during the Launch event.
Despite the cold weather more than 50 children attended the evening during which
a motivational video was shown. Tips on effective studying methods
were shared with them and in particular the 'PQRST' studying method was explained
together with a practical hands-on exercise.
In the week preceding the launch more than fifty learners registered as users of the
Study Centre. The next week several learners started using the facility in
the afternoons which was very encouraging to us

KEEP CALM and STUDY HARD!
Iziko Lobomi's Latest Addition - our own Study Room!
A new milestone was reached this week (28 April 2018) with the completion of a Study
Room for school learners and students. For a long time the HBCCA was aware of the
great need for a quiet place, close to homes, where children and students could
come to do their school homework and also study for tests and exams.
This room will be open from Monday to Saturday from 7h00 to 20h00 and
has two brand new computers which will be connected to the Internet
permanently and which will be available to students
for online research (free of charge).
This Study Room is one more facility (like many others in this same Centre)
that has the potential to have lasting, life-changing impacts
on children and students, not just from this generation,
but for many generations to come.
From the bottom of our hearts, we would like thank the following
sponsors who made this facility possible for us:
Rene' and Michelle Jacobs
Jamie Marshall - Gartner USA
Gartner SA (computers)
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use
to change the world"
'... less than 50% of learners who enrolled in 2002 have written
final Matric exams in 2014.'
