What we've been up to lately


Been up to

Wow! Its been a whirlwind these last few months - The EARTH Centre Team has been extremely busy.
Not only have we been putting our maximum effort into helping as many disabled children as possible, we've also been out and about and working on various projects.

Tekkie Tax Day
We asked and you answered! Thank you to everyone that supported the Tekkie Tax Campaign this year and helped us to raise R25 000.
In particular, we want to thank all the schools and companies that put in an enormous amount of effort by selling stickers, laces and shirts this year. We could not have done it without you!
Each year, our fundraiser, Julia, is doing an amazing job of growing this campaign. For 2019 we have decided to incentivise students from participating schools to sell as much as possible by offering one fabulous prize! The class that sells the most within the school selling the most will be treated to a fun morning at our centre where they get to relax, bring a picnic and interact with our ponies and donkeys! Look out for more details next year.

Mandela Day
On the 18th of July, we had 40 kids from Ruimsig Academy visit our centre to do their 67 minutes of community service. The kids worked hard at picking up horse manure, adding compost to the grass arena and stuffing EcoBrick bottles!

8 people from CHANGES Rehab Centre also came through and helped us to turn, treat and move the compost piles to make more space for our horses.

A huge thank you to everyone involved in helping to make our centre tidier, brighter and more tranquil for our beneficiaries.

WODAC 2018
The EARTH Centre was invited to have a stall and participate in two displays at the WODAC Expo on 22 July. We of course gladly accepted and whisked our horses, Sunny and Sherry, away to Gallaghar Convention Centre for the day.
The two beautiful equine therapists of course turned heads and drew crowds. They were both absolute stars despite the unusual environment – being inside on strange flooring! Katrina Evans spoke about the centre and explained how a lesson is conducted for a Cerebral Palsy child, while Sherry and her entourage demonstrated this.
