News from the Tiyimiseleni Orphanage Project
September started off with Arbour week, the ideal week to plant trees and shrubs in South Africa. The staff of Singita bought some trees to be planted specifically at this time of the year, and came to the Centre so that they and the children could plant them together. Some of the children will now officially look after these new trees and make sure they get enough water to promote quick growth. A big thank-you to all of those Singita staff members that supported the project!
