Help One Now launched the South Africa #TenDollarTribe as a test initiative in February, and already, over 150 people have joined the tribe–thank you! One of our first #TDT projects was to build a new home for Obed, the caretaker at the Maubane facility. Obed is a valuable member of the Maubane team; he provides the upkeep for the garden, the buildings, and the property. He lives on the property to bring an additional measure of security, as well.
His original hut, or Wendy House as the locals call it, was a windowless shack on the corner of the property. But, thanks to the generosity of the #TenDollarTribe members, he now has a brand new Wendy House with three windows, a small porch, as well as a gas stove and a small table. He even got new bedding! Obed now has a cozy, comfortable place to call his own; it is a well-deserved blessing to him for all the hard work he does for the Maubane community.
The best part? Based on the success of the South Africa #TenDollarTribe, we will be launching #TenDollarTribe initiatives for all 11 of our communities! The newest #TenDollarTribe will kick off in just two weeks, and it will be supporting Colegio Kairos, our partners in Peru! And look for the launch of #TenDollarTribes for all of our communities starting in May. Want to join the Tribe and see what a simple monthly $10 gift can do?
