ONE STEP AT A TIME

EMS FOUNDATION AND SHAMBALA PRIVATE GAME RESERVE ARE COMMITTED TO POSITIVE CHANGE IN THEIR COMMUNITY IN LIMPOPO PROVINCE

NATIONAL YOUTH DAY SOUTH AFRICA 2023

National Youth Day is when South Africa celebrates the role of young people who have shaped the history of the country and will shape the future.  We recognize the struggles of the youth in 1976 and celebrate the impact they brought in the liberation of the country. 

The Trustees and Management of the EMS Foundation and Shambala Private Game Reserve believe that every child in South Africa has the right to food and education. No child should be prevented from learning because they are hungry.

Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day and for good reason.  As the name suggests, breakfast breaks the overnight fasting period. It replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness, while also providing other essential nutrients required for good health.

The EMS Foundation and Shambala Private Game Reserve have constructed and provided the necessary infrastructure, and training at three schools in the Vaalwater community in Limpopo Province of South Africa. 

These incredible growzones have provided organic vegetables to each school from 2021 which allows for the children to have a nourishing lunch which the school kitchens prepare. 

According to studies Limpopo Province is one of the poorest provinces in South Africa. The province is unable to meet the basic needs of its people including those of the children. Poverty grant strategies implemented by the government have unfortunately led to other social problems which included unexpected births by unmarried young women in order to quality for it. 

The EMS Foundation and Shambala Private Game Reserve are delighted to announce that they have partnered with the Lunchbox Fund in order to provide the pupils of the Moshia Secondary School, E.A. Davidson and Boschdraai Primary Schools with a healthy breakfast.
