iKhaya Newsletter - March 2018

Luke 6:38 ”Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Exploring the outdoors is is a regular fun activity at iKhaya. The farms surrounding our property provide a great playground for walking, running, playing, a picnic or even a taste of sugar cane! Frequently getting out and about, some fresh air and exercise are the benefits of our country life style!

World Maths Day

World Maths Day in March was a treat as Air Products, who support our preschool, blew us away with amazing puzzles and maths related learning games and classroom aids.

Sacrifice of Love

Honest and Ellen are house parents to five iKhaya children plus two gorgeous daughters of their own, Rachel and Noleen. It is a sacrifice of love, to have given up their personal lives, space and family time, to dedicate themselves as parents to previously vulnerable children, as a calling by our Father God. Through their faithful serving and obedience they bring hope, love, joy and healing to the children placed in their care. We had the privilege of sharing Noleen’s first birthday with them this month. Look how beautiful she was all dolled up for her party! She was all smiles as she realised she was the centre of attention and reason for the celebrations.

Learning is Fun!

Education at iKhaya is a high priority and begins from birth, through baby stimulation time, and continues with toddler educational play time. From 3 to 5 years old our kiddies attend our very own preschool at iKhaya. Teacher Bronwyn exposes the kids to various in- and outdoor activities, life skills, games, sports and adventures. She prepares them well for their school readiness year, grade R.

Braai Time…

Some weekends our much appreciated German volunteers spend time with the children. They come up with such fab ideas to occupy their time with constructive activities. Here they are all wrapping dough on sticks to be “baked” over the bare flames. What an awesome learning time for the kids… and all in the name of fun!

Congratulations and Celebrations

March was a month of celebrations. We had the most amzing fun together at a number of parties. Thanks to Lafarge for treating our birthday kiddies to cakes for their special days. A special friend has partnered with us to give the kids each a gift of their very own choice. They are loving shopping for their gifts themselves. Such valuable life skills such as going to town, handling cash, budgeting and saving are all being taught through this process.

Easter Holidays 2018

Our first school term is already completed and the Easter break is behind us. This year is simply flying by! Once school is our the fun can begin… sleepovers and day trips make the holiday an adventure as the children make happy, lasting memories. We trust our efforts to make their daily lives happy and fun filled will form a part of the memories they will treasure from their childhood knowing we cared and loved from deep within our hearts.
