Margot Janse & Red Balloon Revolution celebrate 1500 lives of underprivileged children in Franschhoek. Celebration Day: 22nd of April 2014, Franschhoek South Africa.

“Every life is worth celebrating,” says the Red Balloon Revolution.

Through the great work of Dutch-born top chef Margot Janse—The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek is rated as one of the best restaurants in the world—Red Balloon Revolution was introduced to the wonderful work of The Kusasa Project.

The Franschhoek non-profit organisation encourages a brighter future for underprivileged children by facilitating academic, sporting and life skills development. And, with the help of Margot Janse and her foundation Isabelo, the children of Kusasa now receive a healthy meal as well as an egg a day. (The egg had been especially added for its protein content, which is necessary for brain development.)

Red Balloon Revolution and Kusasa want to let 1500 children of three Franschhoek schools know that their lives are worth celebrating.

On 22nd of April every child will receive a Red Balloon gift bag teeming with products to celebrate life. Among the many items, there will also be a journal to inspire the children to have a positive outlook for their future, a wish card with tomato seeds to plant, a toothbrush, soap and so on.

To finance this project, The Red Balloon Revolution has developed a wide range of products: from a children’s clothing line and ceramics to iPad sleeves and key chains.

These high quality products have been handmade in Africa by empowerment projects, which help create employment for women in townships.

On the products, look for a Red Balloon—a symbol for freedom and happiness, which are the two core values of the Red Balloon Revolution.
