Katjiepiering Pre-Primary School
The Katjiepiering pre-primary school in Pretoria West was founded in 1982 as an Article 21 Company and is situated in Hermanstad. It looks after poor kids of all backgrounds in the greater Pretoria West area.
The Fat Sheep project in the Karoo was pioneered by Chrisma van der Merwe, a farmer’s wife from Murraysburg. The Fat Sheep brand name has grown very nicely, and she now looks after a team of farmer’s wives who she employs to assist with crocheting these adorable little Fat Sheep.
With funds made from the project, she is making a remarkable difference in the community of Murraysburg and in the lives of many farmers wives spread around the Karoo.

The nationwide droughts have become very serious in the country, particularly in the Karoo. Farmers are on their knees and many have had to sell their farms or have lost them to the banks.
Many deserving upliftment projects have seen the light in these tough times, and we are supporting and assisting these initiatives that are making a difference to the plight of farmers. difference to the plight of farmers.
Creating awareness about farm attacks
Farm attacks are continuing unabatedly, and in most instances, farmers are reliant on themselves to keep their families and workers safe because of their remoteness.
The plight of our farmers and their continued dedication to providing South Africa with food security must continually be highlighted.
Creating awareness about the abuse of women and children
We have a responsibility to stand together against the abuse of women and children. We will present races in Mogale City (Krugersdorp) and Ekurhuleni to create awareness around this.
We assist with the upkeep of the garden and maintenance of the Choc House in Centurion.

Green Caps Recycling
We have managed the Green Caps recycling project for four years now.
It consists of 25 informal recyclers. They actively collect and recycle daily, assisting in keeping our environment green for generations to come.
This project is situated in Lyttleton Road in Centurion. The recycling area is fenced off to hide it from sight.
Winter Woollies Knitting project
The knitting project has seen our aged knitting ladies contribute more than 4000 beanies and gloves to previously disadvantaged schools over the past four years.
Besides the delightful knitwear, the process also provides a feeling of belonging for these otherwise lonely elderly ladies and they have a wonderful sense of contribution to society.
Collecting Bottle Caps for Wheelchairs
We have a network of schools, community organisations and companies who collect bottle caps, which enable us to donate wheelchairs to those who can’t afford it.
We collaborate with the Sweethearts Foundation, through theirTops ‘n Tags programme. It takes around 450kg in plastic tops, or 225000 tops to be exact, to get 1 standard adult wheelchair.
We currently donate an average of 15 wheelchairs annually.
Growing and donating seedling plants
Every year we donate between 400 to 500 seedling plants to a local church in Centurion. They use the funds they generate from sales to provide needy old age homes with food.We also grow plants for CHOC Houses and the Tshwane Clinics.
Renovating the Lyttleton Clinic
We are two years on this this project, and the Clinic is a fully functional and a now presents a delightful atmosphere for patients.
Job creation and tyre “recycling”
We employed our “sculptor” Joseph Ntuli four years ago when we saw what an amazing talent, he has for making ornaments out of old tyres. Tyres can’t be recycled, and they present a challenge to the environment.
To date Ntuli has made more than 1500 ornaments from old tyres, and these decorate many government institutions in Tshwane.
We have a major focus on presenting a family friendly environment at our races, and this includes kids rides. We would like to promote the sport of cycling as a healthy lifestyle choice and as a means to keep kids on the “straight and narrow” in their path through life.
