Health, education and job creation.

sponsor a child

The Sponsor a Child project is aimed at supporting children from poor families in rural areas by ensuring that they have access to quality education and providing them with a food hamper each month. Additionally, an income is also generated for a member of the community who assists with the administration of the project.
 
With a monthly donation of  R350 (around 27USD) a child will receive:
1. Health: a food hamper for each month consisting of well-balanced and nutritious food items such as fruits and veggies.
2. Education: school fees in order to assist in paying for the child’s education.
3. Job Creation: funding to employ a person from the community to ensure the project runs smoothly and the children’s needs are met accordingly.
 
This is a current/ongoing project. The goal is to have all the students (20) of Lepelsfontein Primary School sponsored.

empowering disadvantaged individuals.

people with promise

 
Rural Reach assists those individuals who have the willingness and desire to become financially independent but don’t have the means to pursue the opportunities available to them. These individuals often fail to progress because of something that is no fault of their own. Sometimes it is lacking transport to get to an interview, not owning a computer which is needed to do an online application for university or simply not having access to information because of the remoteness of their town.
 
Rural Reach facilitates and encourages practical steps that might lead towards their financial independence. Whether it is compiling and upgrading a CV, or assisting them with university and bursary application processes, Rural Reach is devoted to the individual and is willing to do whatever is required. 
 
This is a current/ongoing project. The goal is to have individuals accepted and enrolled in tertiary institutions for 2019.

water filter for a vegetable garden.

water works

Water is a problem in the town of Lepelsfontein on the West Coast of South Africa. There is no readily available drinking water for the community and the water from the borehole at the local school is too brackish to use for irrigation, let alone drink. 
 
The Water Works project is focused on providing the school with clean irrigation water in order that they may be able to start their vegetable garden. Seeing that the school is located in a semi-desert area, water is essential for the garden to grow. If the water filter is provided, then the school can grow fruits and vegetables not only for the students, but any excess vegetables can be sold to the residents of the town. Fresh fruit and vegetables have also proven to be a need in the community due to their remoteness. 
 
This is a current/ongoing project. The goal is to raise funds (around R30 000) to purchase the water filter by 2020.

Medi-Aid-Project-Papendorp
Rural Reach handed out first aid kits to farmworkers and community members. Many rural communities are so far removed from medical facilities, even a small first aid kit can make a difference.
Lepelsfontein-Fridge-Project
Rural Reach raised funds to purchase a refrigerator for Lepelsfontein Primary School. Previously the school chef had to take the food to her home to freeze, but now the school can store food long term (which is important when you live 80km from the store!).
Ablution-Facilities-Lepelsfontein
After having received ablution facilities 3 years ago, Lepelsfontein Primary School could never use the facilities since the plumbing was never connected. Rural Reach raised the funds for and installed the required plumbing in order for the school to having working ablution facilities.
Blouman
Rural Reach received a generous donation of clothing from Deloitte in Australia. The clothing was distributed among farm workers and community members who were in need of something warm for the cold nights.
