The Love of Books
Cedar is committed to enhancing education and general knowledge by promoting a love of books in young children. One of Cedar’s biggest projects was to build a library for a primary school that caters to under-privileged children. We converted an under-used room into a place where children can experience the joy of having a story read to them and where, when they are older, they can lose themselves in fantasy worlds about heroes and far-off places!
Cedar Staff Has Fun for a Cause
The staff held a Charity Day where teams had to make and sell products to other members of the staff. What started out a purely charity drive turned into a team competition where teams dressed up, decorated their tables and sold items based on their theme. The team who raised the most was Halloween team, who sold eye-ball jelly and cauldrons filled with spider sweets. Other items on sale included raffles for hug hampers, candles, cards and a lot of scrumptious food and nibblies! All the staff worked hard and gave generously and, between about 40 staff members, we raised enough money to install two new geysers in an old age home where the residents were washing with cold water.
Adopting an Orphanage
Cedar has adopted an orphanage in an area of Alexandra that is surrounded by child-headed households. We have undertaken to do renovations to the buildings, starting with the conversion of a storeroom into a communal bathroom for the boys to use. We have also purchased tables and chairs for the kids to sit comfortably and do their homework, as well as new computers, computer stands, a TV, DVD and bookshelves in order to make a communal recreation and work room. Cedar has also bought pyjamas, slippers and blankets for the children living at the orphanage. We have also purchased blankets and food products for the 41 child headed families that the orphanage administrators also look after. The Cedar staff is currently on a drive to collect children’s clothing for the children in the orphanage.
