As you know, 2016 has been a time of building and outreach for 25:40 in Canzibe, South Africa.  We have boosted our staff, our presence in the community and our partnership with South African government agencies. This has resulted in better attention and services for the orphans and vulnerable children in the poverty-stricken Eastern Cape Province. Children and the communities are thriving due to your support.

Due to your generosity, children across the rural Eastern Cape are receiving schooling, nutritious food, counseling and a safe place to go after school.  Your financial gift has helped to buy the books and materials for the children’s schooling, pay the teacher and counselor stipends and grow our programming so other children in rural areas can have a chance for a positive future.  We look forward to sharing our successes in 2017 with you and hope that you have signed up for our newsletter to receive these updates.  If not, please sign up by going to and completing the form on the bottom right of the page.  If you have not had an opportunity to give this year, please consider making a tax-deductible gift now and give the life-changing gift of opportunity.

From the children of Canzibe, our teachers, counselors and staff and the 25:40 Board of Directors–thank you for your generosity.

Thank you to 25:40′s Generous Supporters!
