The prime purpose of being four is to enjoy being four - of secondary importance is to prepare for being five

Mind, Body and Soul

Our inspiring Mind, Body and Soul day was held on Saturday, 29 August in order to celebrate Women’s month and the power of connections! We hosted the vibrant teenage girls from Lawrence House, St George’s Home for Girls as well as the MissWrite group.

The theme of the day was “Mind, Body and Soul” and we tapped into each aspect with various activities. Our minds were stimulated and inspired by the wonderful author, Andre Eva Bosch and her award winning book, Alive Again. Our bodies enjoyed a delicious high tea and Spur lunch and then we were treated to mini manicures, thanks to Truworths, Kangol and Marketmax as well as a make-up makeover by Nadila. Our souls were nourished by an amazing yoga class by Jennifer Baufeldt, where we learnt the power of play and stillness.

This Fun Day was sponsored by Eniwe and supported by Truworths, HCI Foundation and Spur Foundation and the National Lottery Distribution Trust.

Each teen received a gift bag with a signed copy of the book Alive Again, as well as Kangol products and sanitary pads donated by various people. Thank you to our volunteers and everyone who made this day possible! It was a memorable day that was a sensory and experiential treat for the mind, body and soul!
