A young girl’s plight…

December 24, 2015 in wpc

Young girlA young girl’s plight was brought to our attention just days before the school closed.

Fortunate, the mother of 7 year old Lina lives in the community of Jamaica. Lina cannot sit or walk on her own and is carried everywhere on her mother’s back.

We were asked, “is it possible to find a child’s wheelchair for the young girl?” Through the relationships of working together with other churches in Westville, a wheelchair was found and delivered to a tearful and extremely grateful mother within days!

Inkanyezi Garden Club

December 22, 2015 in wpc

The Inkanyezi Garden Club expanded their boundaries, received a water tank donation from Rotary of Westville and began the hard work of prepping the individual garden patches. As the large stones and rubble are removed and ‘reclaimed’ top soil is picked clean of rubbish (the members asked the Municipality for the soil that ended up in the streets to be ‘dumped’ with them)….new seeds can be planted. It is such a beautiful picture of God’s redeeming love in our lives and the community of Jamaica!

Inkanyezi Gogos

Our “Inkanyezi Gogos” (whose children attended the crèche this year) had a wonderful morning with the “Westville Presby Grandmas” sharing fun, love, laughter and, of course, eats and gifts!

Joy to the World! The Lord has come…..

December 18, 2015 in wpc

As we approach Christmas and remember why Jesus came, there are a few noteworthy touches of His love that have been extended to our community of Jamaica in recent weeks. Every single one of our 62 children enrolled for 2015 received an individually wrapped gift specifically chosen for them! The love, care and time taken by the staff and patrons of Toys R Us Pavilion is truly remarkable. Christmas gifts  

Class of 2015

November 18, 2015 in wpc

Inkanyezi Creche & Community Care Centre is nearing the end of it’s 6th year of operation. Although there have been no major changes to note in 2015, there have been many reasons to be grateful and to give thanks. With an average of 60 children enrolled throughout the year, the emphasis remains the same: to provide a loving, nurturing and stimulating environment in which each child can develop and grow. We are grateful to have been part of each individual child’s journey of discovery from hopping to cutting to learning the communication skills of please and sorry.

class of 2015

Our Early Childhood Development Practitioners (teachers) have had the opportunity of furthering their education with workshops on making toys from waste, managing an ECD centre and health awareness issues to name a few. We are grateful to donors who have made this possible. This past year will be remembered as one of ‘maturing’ as a centre of excellence thanks to the dedication of all the staff, donors, parents/care givers and supporters.

inkanyezi-christmasWe are delighted that Toys are Us have again approached Inkanyezi to be part of their Christmas giving for 2015. If you would like to participate in this initiative, pop into Toys R Us Pavilion and look for the Christmas Tree☺

 

Please pray with us for continued and regular provision for all our needs. We do not have funds available for paying staff an annual bonus. The Management Team is trusting for this and for sufficient funds to maintain the development of Inkanyezi into 2016. If you know someone who would be interested in giving a donation to Inkanyezi, please contact us at inkanyezi@westvillepresby.co.za for more information.

Exciting Developments Continue at Inkanyezi

April 8, 2015 in wpc

The crèche continues to be a centre that provides 60 children with a secure, loving & nurturing environment. The young 3 year olds are learning new routines…and taking home positive ‘practices’ to share. “We pray before we eat at Inkanyezi” ☺.

God has answered our prayers for provision in ways we least expected…a ‘surprise’ email from East Coast Radio requesting our ‘wish list’ for them to purchase and deliver; a monthly PayPal donation from an overseas individual; a direct deposit from a Durban based corporation; a food donation from Woolworths ‘sell by date’ covering our meat needs for 2 weeks…the list goes on!

Working through the Crèche Forum and training facilitated by Save the Children several workshops have been presented and well attended by parents, community members and local crèche members. The partnership is strengthening and having a direct impact throughout the community.

After much hard work of clearing the ground, removing landfill rubble, preparing beds and planting seedlings, the Inkanyezi Garden Club’s first harvest is imminent. Thanks must be said to Westville Rotary for the donation of a Jojo water tank and tunnel, members of Westville Presby who contributed towards fencing and volunteers who have donated seeds, compost and ‘sweat’ to see the project

The class of 2014 was a happy and busy one! Inkanyezi has seen it’s 5th year of operation close with a Graduation and Year End Concert show casing growth, development and thankfulness. As the children sang, danced and received their reports and certificates, parents and care givers expressed their joy and thanks to the staff and supporters of Inkanyezi for all that their children have received. The ‘beacon of hope’ is shining brighter and brighter at Inkanyezi as God continues to show His love and hope to the community of Jamaica, Chesterville.​
