Here is an overview of the upcoming Robin Hood Foundation events and initiatives planned for the rest of July:

These learnerships are in trades like welding, woodwork, sewing and painting.  Other learnerships will be added in the mission to create independent, sustainable income streams for as many KZN communities as possible. Your support towards Werda’s fundraising journey would be greatly appreciated.
