The Hollywood Foundation and ForAfrika unite to celebrate Africa Day

The Hollywood Foundation was proud to join forces with ForAfrika, making a contribution of R165 000 that went towards renovating Bongi Daycare, an Early Childhood Development Centre in Orange Farm.

ForAfrika, previously known as Joint Aid Management, is a non-profit organisation that aims to alleviate hunger and food insecurity amongst vulnerable communities, and in Early Childhood Development Centres. The organisation has grown to deliver a variety of localised programme interventions in six African countries, including South Africa.

The renovation of Bongi Daycare took place on 25 May 2022 and tied into Africa Day and its theme for this year, “The Year of Nutrition”. The organisations partnered to provide an array of items, such as educational toys and equipment, blankets, mattresses, playground equipment, water and water storage tanks, garden seedlings and the necessary training to the ECD practitioners at the facility.

As part of ongoing celebrations for Africa Day, the two organisations were also involved in similar initiatives in Kenya and Mozambique that will help to improve the quality of life for even more children across the continent. 

 Sindile Kubayi, the Corporate Partnerships Lead for ForAfrika (South Africa), said, “It is thanks to compassionate people and organisations like Hollywood Foundation that ForAfrika continues to save lives and transform communities. We look forward to a day of bonding with the Hollywood Foundation team while we engage in activities that will contribute to giving children the future they deserve!”

“We are truly honoured to partner with ForAfrika and implement various initiatives to commemorate Africa Day. With the theme “A Year of Nutrition“, we hope to make a difference and have a long-lasting impact on many children in Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa. We are firm believers of Ubuntu and are proud to extend this belief and culture of helping others, as we look to extend our business footprint across the African continent,” said Sandisiwe Bhengu, Hollywoodbets Head of Operations – Africa
