Community news: SA Cares for Life pizza bust with Panarottis Menlyn

Thank you for your generosity today, Panarottis Menlyn. One of VDT's staff members submitted a motivation for a Panarottis pizza bust, and together we were able to express our appreciation to a wonderful community organisation, SA Cares for Life, by surprising them with tasty pizza from Panarottis Menlyn.

Here’s the motivation that made the magic happen:

I first met Sanet Fagan from SA Cares for Life in 2018. My firm partnered with them and GROOTfm to build a school for residents in Pretoria’s so-called Plastic City. You can read about the work they do here: https://www.sacares.website/.

My respect and admiration for her and her team know no limits.

This is a woman, mother and wife who has dedicated her life to helping babies and children who would otherwise have no hope. 

She works tirelessly and selflessly to build a better life for those who have no voice.

She is beautiful. She is kind. She has the courage which I lack to actively engage with suffering and hardship every day. 

She does it with grace, compassion and love.

She does it when she has good days and when she has bad days; when the sun shines and when it rains; when she is feeling optimistic and when she is feeling hopeless – she continues to serve. 

Sanet and her team are a beacon of hope and light in a community that desperately needs it.

I would be so grateful if, for once, they could be served instead of serving, if they could receive, instead of giving. 

Thank you for considering this request.

Human Rights: Upholding the right to education

Human Rights: Upholding the right to education

The right to education is outlined in section 29 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 (hereinafter “the Constitution”). This section guarantees that everyone has the right to basic education and the right to further education, which the state, through reasonable measures, must make progressively available and accessible. In South Africa the right to basic education can be described as a fundamental socio-economic right, that is, an entitlement to conditions and resources necessary for the material well-being of people.
