In a world where unemployment and poverty are escalating, and economic growth has stagnated, it has become necessary to reach out a helping hand and assist those in need. Even more so in this crazy time of the global pandemic.
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. This is exactly what the Celebrate Life organization aims to do; empower women to make a living. Women are more likely to live in poverty than men, due to unequal access to paid work, education and property. It is organisations such as Celebrate Life that give hope to our many women facing such challenges.
Celebrate life gives underprivileged women the opportunity to make a difference. By educating and mentoring them to run small community projects, the needs of these communities can be addressed. There are over 140 Ubuntu micro-bakeries that have been established in some of these communities. Each of these micro-bakeries produces four loaves of bread every half an hour, amounting to forty loaves of bread a day. These forty loaves provide two hundred and forty children with a sandwich - daily. By improving the lives of over three hundred women, Celebrate Life have fed 33,600 children every day!
Such an initiative is not only innovative but is also impactful and worthy. It merits as much assistance from the corporate world, general society and our government, as possible. When Sikawere approached for assistance, there was no doubt or hesitation to be a part of this admirable cause. With our ever-ready spirit, we felt honoured to contribute to this ripple effect initiative. To assist them with their future developments, a contribution was generously made to Celebrate Life.
Sika is proud to know that this act of giving will leave an indelible mark on society, and wishes Celebrate Life all the best with the ever-growing community initiatives.
