Description

Join us for a fun games night at The Living Room, Newcastle and help us support our Wishing Tree for the Ebenezer Community Project in South Africa. This local South African charity does amazing work supporting the local community, and in particular the local children, who live in real poverty. We would love if would join us in granting some christmas wishes for these children, whilst also enjoying some christmas drinks!

In South Africa 51% of children live below the poverty line and 13.8 million people live in extreme poverty where even access to daily food is a struggle. Ebenezer is a community based project in rural South Africa that provides support for the basic needs of the local community. Two years ago, the project was able to start building their own centre with the aim of helping families in the area to fulfil their basic needs of clothing, food and shelter. Sadly, too many people in South Africa are still struggling with such basic things and find that there is so little support available from the state. We hope to provide a voice for those who are not being heard.

We know that without good Education the future looks bleak for the young people living there - getting a good job is their only chance to break the poverty cycle and move into a better standard of living. Recently, the project started a homework club and feeding scheme. Already there is a visible difference - the children show promise in their developments, are gaining weight, and whilst in the community is getting better. The long-term vision of the Ebenezer project is to help the local people become self-sustainable and see the community transformed into a place where their families can thrive.

We hope you can join us on the 1st March 2018.

If you can't join us but would like to make a donation to the charity, you will find all details here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/duo-globalconsulting
