On Wednesday 8th August 2012, Sibusisiwe hosted our breakfast at Our Place Restaurant in Durbanville. The purpose of the fundraiser was to make people aware that forgiveness and overcoming past hurts is imperative in the lives of prisoners and that God is using us to start the healing process here. Bruce Walsh speaks openly about his “walk” after the 1998 Planet Hollywood bombing and emphatically states that forgiveness is an integral part of moving on with his life. We put into perspective, together with Bruce , the many facets of a committed crime. Alana Olivier, our facilitator at Pollsmoor Prison, shared some stories of the prisoners that we have worked with and Bruce, being once a victim ,explained how he is now living in victory and how important it was for him to forgive in order to move on. The ladies were in awe of Bruce’s strength and many admitted that his talk had a profound effect on the way they look at life.
Monies raised here will be used to further our impact at the prisons.We have already had enquiries about our next ladies breakfast.

2011 Sibusisiwe Annual Report

Written by admin on January 26th, 2012

Our main focus for the past year was to give our website a, new look, work on marketing strategies and collaborate, and network with other like-minded organizations with the, same passions and objectives as ours., The global economic downturn, coupled with the fact that, South Africa is, like so many other countries, making a very, slow recovery from the recession made us realize that we, simply cannot rely solely on donor funding as a means of survival. No NGO can survive without sponsorship and we had, to take a serious look at different avenues to generate additional, income for the sustainability of Sibusisiwe. Thus, we have worked hard at focusing on steps that need, to be in place for us to thrive in today’s economy. The seeds, planted in previous years have now started to take root and, next year we will begin to see the harvest, so watch this, space. As I write this, there are already exciting developments, taking place…

We promised many of you that our website would be updated by the end of May 2011 but due to unforseen circumstances we are now currently only looking at the middle of July 2011. There have been many exciting changes and moves in the right direction and we cannot wait to share all our information with you. Please be patient for a little while longer as we are also changing the format of the website to make it more user friendly for you. Regards from all of us at Sibu.

Raak asseblief betrokke deur ‘n kind se opvoeding vir ‘n jaar te borg by Kleuterskool Akkerdoppies.
Dit kos R600 per maand per kind, dus R7 200 per jaar per kind. Jy kan ook ‘n “halwe” kind borg of ‘n groep kan saam ‘n kind borg – elke bietjie help ongelooflik baie!
Donasies is belastingaftrekbaar, ons voorsien ‘n belastingsertifikaat.

Hoe werk dit?
Jy/ julle/ jou book club, kan kies om:
• ‘n Eenmalige betaling van R7200 te maak:
• Maandeliks R600 voor die 5de te betaal, of
• ‘n Debietorder by jou bank op stel om outomaties maandeliks die geld van jou rekening af te trek:
Wat gebeur volgende?:
1. Ons sal jou aan die einde van Junie in kennis stel van die besonderhede van die kind wat jy borg.
2. Ons sal vir jou ‘n vorderingsverslag stuur met ‘n kunswerk of twee plus ‘n nuusbrief met fotos.
3. Verder sal jy genooi word na die einde van die jaar kerskonsert om jou mensie te ontmoet.

Ons kort nog 4 borge, so as jy laas gedink het jy wil graag betrokke raak maar vergeet het, hier is jou kans!!

In die woorde van Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world” – maak asseblief ‘n betekenisvolle verskil in ‘n minderbevoorregte kind se lewe.

On 27 February 2010 our current and new supporters went all out at a Sibu Fundraiser event held at Kanu Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.
The evening kicked off with drinks and snacks on the patio overlooking the majestic Stellenbosch Mountains where after we were entertained by the up and coming and highly talented HEAVENLY QUARTEZ.
Kanu dished up an amazing three course meal and Daniel gave a presentation of Sibu’s projects and our plans for the future. We trust that his talk inspired some of our guests to become more involved in our efforts to make a difference in our communities.  
The highlight of the evening was the wine auction, presided over by Mr Louw Venter(ex-Survivor South Africa contestant).  With the auction we raised a massive amount of R 45900,00! We have a few candidates on the waiting list for our economic development program who will make good use of some of these funds.  
With the formalities dealt with, our guests kicked off their shoes and danced the night away (until we were politely requested by the Kanu staff to please vacate the premises at around 2am!).
Thank you to all who made a contribution to this hugely successful evening.  Keep an eye on our website and blogs for updated information about our projects and some exciting new developments to follow.

We hope to see you again next year!
