Because We Care
Care for Charities
Make kids love what they do is part of teaching and keeping them interested in school work
New Beginnings – Striking at the Roots!
New Beginnings is a welfare organization who believes in bringing long term change.
We don’t merely rescue animals or help people in need – we enable, empower and educate in order to create a ripple effect of change. We believe in changing mindsets, changing destinies and creating new beginnings.
We have a strong passion for animals who are abused, neglected and starved.
We are pro active.
We don’t wait for animals to come to us, we go in to the field and we find those who are broken.
We shout for the voice less.
Reach for A Dream
We believe in the power of dreams; we encourage children to use their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses and we try, as far as possible, to make these dreams come true.
Our vision is to grow the Foundation to enable us to continue giving hope to children fighting life-threatening illnesses through the fulfillment of their dreams and making our national projects available to as many of the children as we can, the projects include:
Camp Sunshine, Queen for a Day, Captain Courage, Show You Care Send A Bear and the Jabulani Kingdom Hospital entertainers which function on an ongoing basis.

It is important to teach our children that they are part of a larger community and by showing them the value of charity, we encourage your child to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and a strong charitable spirit.
