Firstly, a heartfelt thank you to all who between April and June provided financial support to pre-school staff, and to those who are supporting the feeding intitatives in Vrygrond and Overcome Heights. 

Due to our national lockdown from late March to end of May True North staff had to work from home and only visit the community when delivering relief, however we have implemented safety protocols and SOPS and since early June we have been able to return to our offices in the heart of the community and now our staff is in office daily (but working on rotation.)

There are of course challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and as such we have had to revise our Implementation Strategy for the remainder of 2020. It can be viewed here: 6 Month Adjusted Implementation Strategy. Several of our funding proposals are reflected in this document, these include our Food for Thought program and pre-school direct funding opportunities. We hope you will find it of interest and that you may be interested in supporting one or more of our latest initiatives.

Lastly, if you missed our last newsletter, you can find it here.

What has developed in Vrygrond is truly remarkable, and we are more convinced than ever that the vision to bring quality ECD facilities to every child should be pursued with every fibre of our being. We are committed to seeing through this project, but know that we cannot do this on our own. Hence we are reaching out to you to join us in a cause which has the power to transform individuals and entire communities.

For those who wish to give of their time and skill, True North has periodically got spaces for volunteers, please contact us and advise in what capacity you would be interested in volunteering in. Please note we do not have opportunities for working with children.  Alternatively if you wish to make a monetary donation, or contribute with other resources do let us know, we will provide you with feedback.

Finally, regardless of the size or nature of your intended contribution, we wanted to say thank you for your kindness and your heart.
