Butterfly World (Paarl)


Mandela Day!

In honour of Madiba's birthday, Sisanda and Woolworths employees took 60 kids from Youth Empowerment Action (YEA) in Franschhoek on a fun and educational visit to meet Daisy the Cow at Rhodes Dairy Farm, where they enjoyed  sampling a the cheese and milk and got to stroke calves on the farm. This was followed by a yummy lunch and afternoon wander around the magical grounds of Butterfly World. The day ended off with a small party and colourful cupcakes provided by GimmeCupCakes. Yum!

YEA works with children and youths to help them to overcome social problems through counselling programmes and recreational activities. The organisation is desperate for funding and any form of assistance as it supports around 150 children per day on very limited resources. We're hoping to make this a day for them to remember!
