In September 2017, the Brescia House School grade 10 girls completed their annual 2 day community outreach work at the Johannesburg Children's Home. As part of that effort, the school committed to fixing up and revamping the jungle gyms on the property. Mr Paul Matthews, Head of Operations at the school, and his operations team just recently managed to finish that, as well as to do a little bit of a clean up to the new veggie garden our team dug for them and the girls had planted.

A very big thank you to our Ops Team leader Kathutshelo Thavhana, ably assisted by Lazarus Mohatli and Peter Shogole, as well as by Vibing Gardens supplement assistance of William Zimba and Yoweli Mose.

Attached also find a very heartfelt letter of thanks from The Johannesburg Children's Home for this initiative.
