Letcee awareness luncheon

2017-06-14 06:00

THE Letcee luncheon on 31 May was not only informative, it was also enjoyable and entertaining.
Letcee (Little Elephant Early Childhood Development) is well known internationally, but not so well known in its hometown. It is planned that a series of fund-raising “soup” luncheons will be held to make Greytonains more aware of the incredible work this organisation does.
Guest speaker was nutrition expert Low Carb Life’s Kate and the guests were served soup, bread and dessert proving that a low carb diet can be tasty.

This non-profit organisation works in impoverished rural communities of the district and has made a difference in improving the quality of life for thousands of children and adults.
It educates the community who are then able to assist, donate or even give time to help those in need. Thousands of children are part of the feeding schemes.
There are playgroups, mobile toy libraries, and through its training courses for adult rural women, brings education to the most vulnerable in the community - the children. Letcee’s initiatives strive to uplift the communities by instilling in them how to care not only for themselves, but also for others. There are 17 food gardens which are a food sources to many. They are taught skills and given responsibility and in return are rewarded with crops and beyond that, a sense of achievement and upliftment.
It’s mission is “to build the confidence and capacity of families and communities to create a nurturing environment for their children”.

The soup luncheon was held at the home of Mr and Mrs A. Cotterrell and it is hoped the first of many such fund-raising and awareness events, reminding us that Letcee is an organisation worthy of the funding that it so desperately needs.
Also assist by sharing skills - read stories to the youngsters, teach basic dancing and offer to host a “soup” luncheon fund-raiser.
