A year ago we launched the Mrs. Ndaba Programme and, at the time, we never dreamt it would capture as many hearts and imaginations as it has.
Our desire to give back, support and teach the local community – through this concept – has proved so popular that we now supply healthy meals to over 70 children in three different preschools five days a week.
This initiative has grown to be so much bigger than just the Mrs. Ndaba’s crèche and Friday muffins. To reflect this growth, and the fact that it now supports so many children throughout their school week, we’ve decided to rename this project Isabelo.
Isabelo, which is Xhosa for sharing and caring, is still entirely funded by the generous donations of our guests and other friends of Le Quartier Français. The children’s’ daily meals are all prepared by the Le Quartier Français team, who selflessly donate their time and expertise, so every penny that is donated is spent on the kids.
