At Elsje Designs, Christmas is also a time for giving back to the community of Kayalitsha. Beginning of December we were priviledged to be part of a Christmas party which was celebrated at St Michaels Primary School in Harare. It was attended by 400 children from St Michaels Primary, Sophumelela Pre-School, Illitha and orphaned children of the Simameleni Child Abuse program. It was a life changing experience to hand out cool drinks to keep the children energized for the the jumping castle, face painting, hockey, hoola hoops, skipping and just to be able to spend the day with Father Christmas. It was arranged by one of Elsje’s friends, Ellen Odendaal. Our main aim was to spread the festive cheer and goodwill to those who are less fortunate.
