Feeding project (2002-2023)

* Papillon crowdfunded money to donate toward the feeding at the schools for (2020 – 2023).

* Annual Mandela day outreach for children:

2002-2017 (Gauteng);

2018-2019 (Overberg / Grabouw Western Cape Province);

2021: Latest Mandela day in partnership with Imibala: Food for 670 children in Nomzamo/Lwandle township Helderberg Basin (Western Cape).

(Angel Nakani, a local entrepreneur, and a group of lady friends have banded together to create a soup kitchen in the Zola community of Strand. During 2020 Angel noticed the growing need for daily sustenance amongst small children and the homeless and the soup kitchen was started in a shipping container. Hot meals are served once daily to immensely needy and grateful individuals).

In honour of Nelson Mandela Day, Imibala and the Papillon Foundation donated 67 My Life instant porridge sachets to the soup kitchen. This porridge has high nutritional value, can be served either hot or cold and each 500g sachet amounts to 10 portions (670 children fed).

* 2020: Papillon organized crowd-funding income toward Imibala’s feeding. Partnering with Imibala Trust. Papillon funded Imibala’s Feed-A-Family Campaign with 545 bales of nutritional porridge. Each bale having 80 servings, amounting to 43 636 meals in Graaff Reinet, Somerset West and Rusthof at 21 schools. R30 000 donated by Papillon toward this feeding scheme.

R 30.000 / R 55 per bale = 545 bales.

Each bale gives 80 servings.

Thus 43.636 meals were provided.

200 bales for Graaff Reinet and 345 bales for Somerset West and Helderberg Basin.

Imibala has embarked on a feeding scheme journey last year which is now more needed than ever. Imibala has fed 4000 people on a weekly basis since May 2020 until January 2021 with a large food parcel that feeds a family of 4 for a week.

21 schools in the Helderberg Basin in the Western Cape and 5 schools in Graaff Reinet in the Eastern Cape are in charge of logistics and take care of the final distribution of the food.

The schools are supplied on a weekly basis.

500 children visit the Imibala village in Somerset West on a weekly basis and all the children receive a meal on site and they are provided with a sachet to take home.

Imibala also has a school uniform project that provides school clothes and shoes for 2.100 children, these children also receive a sachet when they collect their school uniform.

The food consists of instant porridge that can easily be prepared with cold or hot water and provides the children with all the necessary nutrients.

1 Bale contains 10 sachets. A 500 gram sachet provides 10 servings.

1 Bale therefore provides food for 100 children at a cost R 62 per bale.

The families of the children that Imibala serves are part of the poorest communities and the need for basic food is increasing at an alarming rate.

Papillon crowdfunded R40 000 and gave it to the Imibala School feeding scheme. Funding given in 2023.

* Partnering with Feeding Project (Rusthof – Erijaville & Nomzamo) May to August 2020 – monetary donation per month.

Two local highly experienced and qualified trainers have come on board as volunteers in the project.

Papillon has been the Financial Patron for the Apples of Gold/LAMb Trauma Project from 2015 to 2022.

The Apples of Gold CEO will continue with these projects from 2023.

The aim of the Papillon free accredited trauma training, in partnership with “Apples of Gold” and “LAMb International”, is to teach and equip caregivers in understanding and recognizing trauma, to understand the impact trauma has on the life of a child and how to become competent in dealing with the child’s behaviours – helping them to work through that trauma so that it is dealt with quickly and effectively.

Excellent practical exercises, group work and discussion, and PowerPoint presentations and videos are included in the training. The training has also been adapted to suit the African context as much as possible, so that it is relevant and understandable for the people being trained.

Caregivers can also obtain CPD points after the successful completion of this training.

The course covers topics such as:

Understanding need, Goals of trauma care, Trauma versus stress, Acute trauma, Complex developmental trauma, Trauma’s impact on development, Domains of impairment, Understanding behaviour, Essential skills of trauma informed care, Remapping thinking and responses, Caregivers’ personal self-care.
