Nobantu Centre Donations

A few weeks ago our Professor encouraged us to put together a few items to donate to the Nobantu Centre, located in the Mfuleni Township which we will be visiting during our program abroad. Everyone in the program jumped at the opportunity to give back to the community that would be hosting during our study, gathering dental, medical, and school supplies. As you can imagine, we didn’t all have the financial means to purchase supplies on our own, so many of us did small fundraisers and asked for donations. Astonishingly, after reaching out to the members of my church I raised nearly $800 and was able to purchase a large amount of recreational equipment for the Nobantu Centre.
