A new team of ladies will be climbing Mount Meru in Tanzania in October to raise awareness of our heritage on a wildlife and community level. Celebrate Life SA will be supporting various projects in the next couple of years. Our aim is to raise R500,000 towards the community projects and help make a difference.
BREAD MAKING UNITS IN THE COMMUNITY
Teach a man to fish instead of giving him one…
There are millions of people who live in the townships with the potential to work hard but can’t find a good job. Some lucky ones do have a job but after taxi fares and long hours they barely bring home enough money to scrape by. Due to the lack of resources for this large portion of our population, the cycle of poverty, lack of education and crime gets passed from one generation to another.
Celebrate Life SA is targeting the problem on a micro scale. What if one woman could bake and sell 30 loaves of bread a day from her home?
Most families eat two loaves per day; this means she would only need 14 families as customers. What if she could make R5 per loaf of bread she sold per day?
What kind of change would she and her family achieve if she was working from home generating a profit of R4500?
“One at a time” is how you can help change lives and help build our nation.
Together we can create opportunities and change lives.
There is opportunity for community members to become bakers in their respective neighbourhoods.
Celebrate Life would like to contribute to the rural communities around Ubuhle Bemvelo in Camperdown and around Thula Thula Game Reserve in Northern KZN.
EDUCATION IN RURAL COMMUNITIES ON PRESERVING WILD LIFE AND STOPPING THE POACHING CRISIS OF ELEPHANTS AND RHINO
Rhino and elephant booklets to educate the younger generations at school on protecting their heritage.
Vegetable gardens and how to manage them daily to produce food, give children a sense of worth and pride.
TB and HIV education in the form of talks, HIV testing, encouraging TB testing at local clinics.
The “missed” three million
TB is curable, but our current efforts to find, treat and cure everyone who gets ill with the disease are not sufficient.
Of the nine million people a year who get sick with TB, a third of them are “missed” by public health systems.
Many of these three million people live in the world’s poorest, most vulnerable communities and include groups such as migrants, miners, drug users and sex workers.
We believe that no one should be left behind in the fight against TB. This World TB Day, we call for a global effort to find, treat and cure the three million and accelerate progress towards zero TB deaths, infections, suffering and stigma.
To reach the three million we need to aggressively scale up TB programmes and ensure access and coverage for all, especially for the most vulnerable groups and in areas most heavily affected by the diseases – the TB ‘hotspots’.
We must invest in basic research and research and development for new tools – diagnostics, drugs and vaccines – in order to reach people faster, treat them more quickly and ultimately prevent them from becoming ill with TB.
If we are successful we can ensure that we meet the Millennium Development Goals and start to talk realistically about eliminating TB as a public health problem in the next two decades.
This World TB Day, people all over the world, from TB programme managers to frontline health care providers will make a call to Reach the three million and ensure that everyone suffering from TB has access to adequate TB care, including diagnosis, treatment and cure.
THULA THULA RHINO SANCTUARY
Celebrate Life SA would like to contribute on an ongoing basis to the wonderful work at Thula Thula Rhino sanctuary which the renowned Lawrence Anthony started – supplies needed include products for the ICU unit, adopting a rhino, sponsoring feeds and a nurse for the orphan rhino. Funds will also be donated to the elephant projects to protect them from poachers and assist in the contraception programme.
All sponsors will be detailed on our website and given opportunities to supply caps/ T shirts etc to be worn by Celebrate Life team members in the community when assisting with projects for media coverage
Celebrate Life SA is driven by supporting very specific projects in our community.
You too, can make a difference.
