INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY - 2018!

International Women's Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.

For the women of A Reaching Hand, beneficiaries and donors alike, it is a day that remind us that our work is not done. The girls, young women and mothers who need our support, deserve to live a life where they are treated as equals, whose rights are respected, and whose dignity is preserved.

So let us continue to make a difference, one day at a time!

A drop of rain is insignificant, but together we can make a river!

NOTHING LIKE A WHITE TOOTHY SMILE!

Regular tooth-brushing is carried out at the kindergarten to teach the kids good healthy habits from a young age. A healthy mouth will allow them to eat nutritious foods comfortably, speak clearly, and smile confidently. 

Yesterday they were very excited when they received their very own toothbrush and toothpaste. Here we show a few of them sitting in front of their toothbrushing station :) 

Big THANK YOU to African Home Guesthouse in Cape Town for this health & hygiene donation!
