As the world opens up so do we.
We took our first trip back to South Africa with no travel restrictions after being unable to travel there for nearly 3 years.
The purpose of the trip was to visit our team of builders and visit the local communities that we work with to re-establish friends and relationships ready for you the volunteer to come out to South Africa to build a house for a family.

Over the past year we have managed to build 6 houses for 6 little families through your kind donations. This has not just impacted the families that we have built for but also has a profound impact on everyone involved. Because of your kindness and generosity, the builders that have worked with us for the last 12 years have been kept in employment and in turn this has kept their families through Covid.
We are also proud that this year we completed the Christoph Meyer School.
Three years ago, we had a dream to support an amazing lady called Dorothy Mlambo the principal of the school that taught Maths and Science in two tiny little rooms with very small windows and no air circulating.
After talking to Dorothy, the dream was born!
We would like to take time to thank Leslie spears from Joy4U Limited (Moroccan oil) for donating the money to be able to build these amazing premises and an environment where the young learners have a motivational environment to learn.
But a building is nothing without the content and the teachers that deliver and support the learners. The two go hand in hand.
Thank you to Rotary and the following UK clubs, German clubs and South African Rotary clubs
- South Africa Rotary
- UK Rotary
- Redhill & Reigate District

Thank you for donating £2 a month to feed the many children a bowel of porridge a day.
On our last trip we visited the children within the community at the schools that you support. One meal a day at the start of the day helps a child to focus on their education. Education gets you out of poverty. That’s the difference you make.
Stuck to know what to give a friend or family member for Christmas.
The perfect gift.
Buy an orphaned or vulnerable child an education.
What do we mean?
Often orphans don’t go to school because they do not have a school uniform. You can change that by donating £25 to buy a boy or girl or both a school uniform as a Christmas present for your friend or family member. It’s simple, just follow the link then send us a message on Info@cocosfoundation.co.uk, type in boy or girl in the subject box and we will then send you a thank you on our Facebook page.
I started with a dream!
10 years ago, we met a young boy that stood out from the crowd.
His name was Lindani, over the years we have watched over him and seen him grow and develop. Every opportunity that he has been given he has seized with both hands and run with it.
From a boy to now a young man many of you have supported our Skills4Life program and Lindani on his journey. Thank you.
