  1. 1. RE:// Haven of Rest School Children’s Village Dear Partner 2010 marks the commencement of a landmark, the Haven of Rest School and Children’s Village which will have far reaching positive impacts for the greater community at large. Equipping youngsters for the future is paramount and with the start of a new education block, we aim to groom academically, spiritually, morally and socially sound individuals for life. As a valued partner of the Haven of Rest, we invite you to join us in Phase 1 of this exciting project, which will house approximately 200 children. Construction is imminent and the completed education block will incorporate 20 classrooms, inclusive of a primary and secondary school, an administration block, computer room, library and playground. Currently, our school ACE System of Education caters for 66 children, of which 20 are from the Haven of Rest. The capital cost for the school project is estimated at R5 million.

Phase two encompasses 15 cottages, which will house 100 children, mostly HIV/Aids infected and affected orphans. To ensure children are brought up in a proper family set up, the cottages will each have house parents to care for six children per cottage. Phase 2 is estimated at R5 million. Individual cottages can also be named after generous donors. Phase 3 Phase 3 of this mammoth undertaking will be a duplex to house six people with three bedroom apartments at a cost of R2 million.

The plans have already been submitted for approval and groundwork has commenced. Support With dedicated sponsors and partners, we can all make a difference in society. While others turn a blind eye to these glaring issues – there are those who face the unsheltered daily brunt of abuse, poverty, dependency, violence and other manifestations of social ills. These people have dedicated their lives to promote the preservation and

But it is not just the responsibility of social workers and NGOs to handle all the moral and social problems within society. Parents, families, communities, corporates, business, government and religious leaders all have a role to play to fight this scourge. No one should abdicate their responsibility and the time for pointing fingers of blame, are over. The time for action is needed. Whatever you can do whether big or small, every individual should play a part in enhancing the social fibre of society. We humbly request that you partner with us to make this vision a reality. Any contribution in cash and kind towards this huge project will be appreciated. We are looking for individuals/ families/ companies to sponsor a Brick for a minimum of R10 000-00 to be raised in 6 months that will enable us to reach our target. The individual/ families/ companies name would be on a brick. Thanking you for your co-operation and God bless. Ronnie & Shirley Naidoo Haven of Rest 83 Hospital Hill Rd P. O.
