House of Hope Make Over

On Friday the 12th of April 2019 Shannon Povall along with Brett Malila from The President’s Awards South Africa and the Aliwal North High School Interact Club launched the House of Hope Make-Over Project.

The project consists of repainting and fixing up House of Hope in Dukathole, Aliwal North. On Friday the volunteers scraped and prepared the walls for Saturday’s painting. The early bird catches the worm and the volunteers were up and going early on Saturday morning painting and repairing the house. After a long day’s work the volunteers could take a step back and give each other a high five for what they had achieved.

We would like to thank the following sponsors for helping to make this project possible : Build It Aliwal North , Manta DIY, Discount Centre, Cliffie and son, Aliwal North and Lynda and Jacques Venter from Aliwal Toyota . We would also like to thank Brett Malila from The President’s Awards South Africa, for coming all the way from Grahamstown to assist with the project, Craig Povall for assisting with the repairs on the house and Ms Zizi Rens for chaperoning some of the learners to and from House of Hope .

We appreciate all the help we received and look forward to the next step in the House of Hope Make-Over Project.
