I am a contestant in Greg's Watch-A-Thon charity event on the 6th July raising money for the Hotel Hope Charity. We are going to stay awake as long as we can watching movies in the Sleepy Gecko Guesthouse conference centre. We get sponsored by the hour
Hotel Hope Ministries
We are a fully registered South African charity, making the country better in 3 key areas since 2008:
Children in Need
3 Children's homes in Melville and Westdene as well as a Montessori Pre-school stream exclusively for our children. Currently 22 kids under the age of 9, and 110 kids since inception in 2011. 88 of our children have been adopted locally or internationally or have been re-united with birth family or extended family. 5 of our kids now live in Holland, 1 in Austria, 3 in Finland, 2 in Norway etc. etc. (Stand Apr 2020)
Mothers in Crisis Pregnancy Situations:
We work through 5 high schools in Alexandra and help pregnant learners make wise decisions around pregnancy, child birth and child care. Involved in several thousand teenage crisis pregnancies since 2008
3 Charity Shops in Melville providing training opportunities for disadvantaged people groups and an income for the charity as well as an amazing carpentry workshop where we upcycle broken industrial pallets into storage boxes and children's furniture.
We generate 30% of our annual budget through our own social trading activities.
