South Africa: a life-changing initiative

Published on Wednesday, 2 November 2016

“Many kids are malnourished and really just come to school for food! It is the most desperate situation and they wouldn’t cope if it wasn’t for Soul Food and Enel Green Power”

– Rev Brent Chalmers, OSB Cam Founder and Managing Trustee

With the children of Port Elizabeth

We have become supporters and partners of Soul provider in this project because it helps directly and immediately a community in proximity to our  Wind farm who are among the most vulnerable in South Africa

For the schoolchildren that the project addresses in the suburbs of Port Elizabeth, having lunch at school means not only eating and avoiding a serious risk of malnutrition, but also having the energy to play, study, live.

“We are grateful to have you in our team, because some of our students that come from disadvantaged families are now regularly attending school, thanks to your support and the help you are providing”

– Z. Kula, headmaster at the Vukani Combined School to EGP RSA

Children are among the recipients of our attention because they are the present and the future of this African country. The partnerships with the NGOs Mother 2 Mother and Ubuntu originate from the same concern that drives the Soul Provider project.

In response to the United Nations, which called on companies to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, our commitment in South Africa mainly involves children and families, in order to ensure appropriate education to youngsters and children, and therefore suitable health and living conditions.
