After donating 1 100 bicycles to learners from 20 rural schools in KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape in April and May respectively - Volkswagen South Africa together with its partners Qhubeka and World Vision South Africa returned to a KwaZulu Natal school to conduct bike maintenance, a road safety clinic and deliver backpacks filled with books and stationery.
Volkswagen is one of the largest donors of the Bicycle Education Empowerment Programme (BEEP). The cost of one bicycle is R2 320 - and learners/parents or guardians are required to sign a contract which stipulates the terms and conditions of using the bicycle (school attendance). The bicycle becomes the personal property of the learner after the two-year contract has elapsed.
Baby Hope House is a place of safety for vulnerable children. It seeks to recognise and within reason, provide for each child's specific needs. We affirm that children are to be loved and celebrated and placed with forever families.
Hope House is a place of rekindled hope for all the children, parents and volunteers. They are always grateful for any help or donations they receive. So please help spread the word and visit their Facebook page.
Alpine Volkswagen is making a meaningful change in the lives of future South Africans by assuming the responsibility of a principal sponsor at the St Vincent Children's Home in Mariannhill. Having identified the needs of the orphaned and abandoned children at St Vincent, the dealership has embraced this most worthy community cause with an understanding that goes beyond a call for commercial involvement.
The most successful Volkswagen dealership in South Africa is now on course to make an enduring difference in the lives of countless young beneficiaries over future decades. Alpine believes there is no greater gift than granting an innocent child the very real opportunity of a life filled with love, family values, spiritual awareness, education competence and personal opportunity. For Alpine Volkswagen it is as simple - and as wondrously rewarding - as that.
The home is always grateful of any help or donations, such as clothing, educational supplies, or food, that brings dignity and happiness to the lives of these children. If you would like to find out more or get involved then follow the link below
