The Angel Network recently gave six teens new school uniforms, a first for each of them, who have usually received well-worn hand-me-downs.
Hillbrow, Johannesburg – Many children in South Africa don’t have access to proper school uniforms, and with winter creeping in faster each day, many are not equipped with clothing that is warm enough to get them through a cold day in a chilly classroom.
The Angel Network was started to give a hand up to orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa by assisting with food, clothing, housing and education. Today they support hundreds of individuals and charitable organisations to get a better chance at life in South Africa.
The organisation collects funds for various projects, and one of those is to give children and teens adequate school uniforms. Recently they shared a feel-good story about how they used funds to purchase brand new school uniforms for six high school students from the Twilight Outreach in Hillbrow.
The Twilight Outreach is a Child and Youth Care Centre in Johannesburg, providing care, development and support for previously disadvantaged children in need of care and protection within the ages of 8 to 18 years.
“One of the many places your donations go to is providing school uniforms to children who have so little. Pictured here are teenagers from Twilight Outreach who, for the first time, don’t have to feel ashamed going to school in torn, second-hand clothing. Thanbonproufly displays his prefect badge.
Heartfelt thanks to all our MVM’s (Most valued members) who continue to contribute monthly. And to Lara Krowitz for the enormously generous donation of t-shirts” – The Angel Network
This is the first time many of these young men have received a brand new school uniform. Take a look at their beaming pride in the images below.
