Season’s greetings from Isabelo

Our hearts are warm this festive season, thanks to our sponsors –we’ve been able to show continued support to the Isabelo children.
We have been able to serve a very nutritious lunch every school day to 120 children across 3 play schools. The meals are prepared by our Le Quartier Francais team, who selflessly donate their time and expertise so that every cent donated is spent on food for the children. Recently we also celebrated Christmas with the children and gave them a wonderful party, Santa Claus and gifts included!
We have also been able to financially support an extra 160 000 meals for the children in two Franschhoek schools through also the Kusasa Breakfast Club these past two years. This started with porridge every week day morning last year and we were able to increase the nutritional value by adding an egg to their porridge 4 days of the week.
We strive to continue and grow this initiative. With continued support, have no doubt that it will change the lives of more children than we ever imagined possible.

Words can never thank you enough for all that you do for The Kusasa Project we can only hope that every child that you have supported will grow into an educated adult that you will be proud of!

Ready, set, Virgin Orange is on the mark!

Long-time friends, and now running partners, Margot Janse and Saskia Blaisse, are on a
mission. One that encompasses hundreds of kilometres of pounded pavement, an altruistic
goal, and The Cape Town Marathon on 22 September 2013.
They’re both Franschhoek locals: Margot is the executive chef of world-renowned Le
Quartier Français, and Saskia is the co-founder of Truckles Traditional Cheese and Blazing
Grey.
New to the marathon circuit, the two Dutch-born athletes have called themselves VIRGIN
ORANGE, and can be seen rain, sleet or winter sunshine every morning training on the
streets of their village (much to the delight of the townspeople driving past on their daily
commute, who have become the runners’ unofficial cheering squad).
Blazing a trail, the dynamic duo have been increasing their distance exponentially, with the
most recent achievement standing at 27 kilometres on one stretch—though the true goal
of competing in The Cape Town Marathon lies in raising funds for The Kusasa Project
Breakfast Club.
Since 2007 over 650,000 breakfasts have been provided at Dalubuhle and Wes Eind
Primary School, one of the most crucial programs which prepares the children for a day of
learning, facilitated by The Kusasa Project in conjunction with Le Quartier Francais.
This huge volume of meals requires a variety of utensils, equipment, storage and kitchen
structures as well as large numbers of plates and cutlery.
There is an urgent need to replenish this equipment and VIRGIN ORANGE have taken
on this challenge to raise R200 000 to purchase a significant amount of vitally needed
resources.
