My name is Tuli Martins, a 26-year-old living in Masakhane, Gansbaai, Western Cape.
I'm raising funds to contribute to the running costs of 3 Early Childhood Development Centers that I work with:
These ECD Centres have a serious need for financial assistance towards their running costs. As a birthday wish, I decided to dedicate my birthday to raise funds for this cause from the 13th (on my birthday) to the 23rd November. To give the centres a clean slate for the new financial year with minimal to zero financial backlogs.
By raising the funds this will mean that debts are paid off, continuous backlogs and shortfall in salaries are covered and financial security can be built on with more motivation.
If we can raise enough funds to cover some of these urgent essential costs to the centres, we can motivate these teachers to be even better at what they do. By doing so we create a healthy, and happy learning and development space
Funds raised will be used to cover:
Salary shortfalls, especially December Salaries with little income coming in as parents keep their children at home.
Municipal bills and debt which may result in water being closed by the municipality if not paid up.
Electricity - December - with less income (school fees) expected in December, some of the centres may be unable to start the new year with Electricity in January as it runs at R2000p/m and these centres can barely afford it
