Support Local Charity – Full Review: Peace Home

“Maziza”, as her children and community lovingly refers to her, is a qualified psychologist who, like many South Africans,went looking for and found a lucrative career abroad. When she came back, unlike many South Africans, she poured all of her funds into creating a home for those children that didn’t have one.

A home is often thought of as a house, a structure, a dwelling, a place to sleep. Those of us who have lost our ‘homes’, without losing our ‘homes’ know better. For me, personally, a home is a lot more than a building in which to exist. A home is something that only a home-maker can give you. And it’s the most precious gift of all.

A home-maker is someone who can change your life forever, someone who provides a safe haven, mentoring and advice. Someone you can call a role-model, a healer, family. Maziza provides that gift to ‘her children’ every single day.Peace

At Peace Home children who have been victims of traumatic events receive a safe haven, expert counseling, education, health-care, LOVE, understanding, advice and a future (something that most of them have NEVER received before). She teaches them how to eat, talk, be happy, valuable members of the community. She gives them back their dignity, their self-confidence, their lives. Read more

SUPPORT LOCAL – TABLEVIEW – INTRODUCTION

The concept is simple, really:

  1. Let’s support local business & especially the tourism industry
  2. So that these businesses can bring capital into our community
  3. That they will use to employ local individuals
  4. And support local charities

 

Let’s see the change and celebrate it – together

There is no way for it not to work. Even though it seems impossible to save SA’s economy; if we start with one person, one street, one community, we CAN. We can help, we’re not powerless, we’re strong, but only if we are willing to let go of our differences and work together actively to build the community that all of us want to live in.

Do you want to be safe at night? Then make sure that every entrepreneur close to you has a steady stream of customers, every person living close to you has a job, all of us spend our money in and around our community. Invest in a better future for yourself. Invest in your community.

“You know what the problem with you is; you still believe you can change the world.”

Who responded:

“I will never stop believing that I can create the future I want to live in.”

Then realized:

She can’t do it alone.
