TWC Grade 3's mentioned in The Eden Kids Book

The Grade 3s were visited by Nhlakanipho Gazu from The Eden Kids Trust recently.  He came to tell them about The Eden Kids book, written by Pastor Joel Ruttenberg.

This children’s book tells the story of the Eden Kids journey and our girls were given the opportunity to buy the book.  All proceeds raised go towards the Eden Kids Feeding Scheme.  TWC’s contribution to Eden Kids is also mentioned in the book.

The Grade 3 girls gave scarves they have knitted to Mr Gazu who said the children would be very excited to receive such warm, bright scarves.  The scarves will keep them warm on the chilly mornings when they walk to school. It was a heart-warming afternoon and the girls enjoyed singing songs with Mr Gazu and learning more about this wonderful Outreach Programme.
