Where Rainbows Meet Training and Development Foundation:
Where Rainbows Meet, founded in 2008 is a diverse organisation with its focus on the educational development of children, teenagers, and adults from poor and mostly neglected areas such as Vrygrond, where the organisation is located.
For us it’s important, not only to help the communities but to let the individual members of the community be part of Where Rainbows Meet and spread the rainbow within their own communities.
We offer educational programs starting with the small children in our Educational children Development Centre (E.C.D) over to our various in/out of school and afternoon programs and our women programs for motor skills and nutritious health. But, also many more life skills programs such as English, and Computer Classes.
Despite our programs, we also support our community members with other supplies if need be:
-hygiene products
-printing documents (homework, copy of ID, etc.)
-clothing, toys and others (especially for the fire victims)
-food handouts and regular feedings
The time during COVID-19 has again shown us the seriousness of our peoples’ need. We have been handing out food twice a day since Level 5 of Lockdown had started.  But the need for food grew and other members of Vrygrond and the surrounding areas started to take responsibility by dedicating their homes and time to provide food for the other community members. Most of those kitchens started out by getting their main support from Where Rainbows Meet and we currently, still support 26 kitchens with the food donations we get. Nevertheless, the need is growing and Where Rainbows meet itself is cooking for three different areas every day, handing out food in 4 different areas weekly.
However, the support Where Rainbows Meet is getting during these, even more difficult times, is also recognised by the gangsters and drug addicts in the same area. Where Rainbows meet, as the biggest supplier and most consistent kitchen, is a filter of the donations that are coming in. The donations come to the Where Rainbows Meet Organisation and are stored and divided into the different kitchens at Where Rainbows Meet. Our buildings have been reorganised. The ECDs are now storage for food supplies and our workshop building is turned into a cooking area for rainy days.
The people in the community see the donations that are coming in and know the valuables we try to secure on our premises every day for our programs. But it’s the lack of money during this Pandemic which is urging the drug addicts to come and break into our organisation. During the weekends and nights, we have security staying on the premises and an alarm that needs to be fixed up, however, our fence is not secure enough and can be cut with a basic pair of pincers.
One Monday morning, two weeks ago we came to the organisation and saw that two of the office windows were broken into and the backdoor to our sewing was completely ripped out while the lock had been broken. Later the same week gangsters again tried to break into the office and broke one of the burglar bars and the printer was pushed aside as they tried to make their way inside the office again! The following week our security informed us they were throwing Brick stones at him trying to scare him off and enter the premises. Three attempted break-ins in less than 14 days! To find something to sell out of the desperation for drugs.

It is our responsibility towards our community and towards our food donors to provide secure storage for the donations we get and our other valuables (like computers and sewing machines) that are there to serve our community members with education and not drugs!
We, therefore, are raising funds for a new fence, more, and proper burglar bars and a properly working alarm to keep the drug addicts away from our premises.

The fence will be 2,4 meters high with an additional 600cm underground. It will include two gates of 4 meters hight and surround the whole perimeter of the property.
Help us provide the security of your donations, help us so we can go on after the pandemic is over, HELP US HELP VRYGROND.
