My name is Taneil Thompson. I am a first-year Psychology student at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and a member of the Psyche Society (a student run, student led organisation at the University of Pretoria which aims to provide volunteering opportunities to students).
I am also the founder of the BeKind! Initiative (https://www.facebook.com/SimplyBeKind) which I started as a platform from which I could raise funds to help those in need.
I am hoping to go into the field of Educational Psychology, and it is for this reason that I have chosen to assist a group of children at New BeginningZ - a non-profit organisation that cares for orphans and vulnerable children. There are 15 children who will be starting school in 2021, each of which will need a stationery pack, school bag, lunch bag and bottle, and a school uniform.
In this way we can ensure a positive start to their future and show them, and others that find themselves in similar situations, that it is not where you come from but rather where you are going. This is where you come in, I cannot do this alone. Please help me to make the start of their school career something they will always remember.
The funds raised will go towards buying school stationery, a school bag, a lunch box and water bottles, and a school uniform for each of the 15 children.
