The Robin Hood Foundation started informally in May 2005 when Durban businesswoman, Cindy Norcott, saw an opportunity to clothe ten poor babies for a year with her daughters’ outgrown baby clothes. With phenomenal growth, in 2007 the NPO, The Robin Hood Foundation, was formed. The trustees of the Robin Hood Foundation are Cindy Norcott, Liesl Kriegisch, Pat Horrmann, who all work voluntarily.
When it comes to The Ethembeni School, the Robin Hood Foundation has been exponentially good to us. This year (2020) was no different. Despite a global pandemic, The Robin Hood Foundation visited us with their holiday cheer, essential school items and presents for our learners.
This year’s contribution from The Robin Hood Foundation was phenomenal. Their organisation safely arranged for the delivery of a delicious lunch for the students and a mountain of fun. The day was filled with delicious eats and surprises for our learners who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. To complete the experience, The Robin Hood Foundation also donated many BRAND-NEW toys to The Ethembeni School Learners. While we can all agree that toys are secondary to the love we give and receive during the festive season, our learners truly did light up when they were gifted these magnificent gifts. A feeling wecan all surely understand and take pride in as teachers and parents.
Their hard work and dedication resonate within us all and we are forever grateful for their contribution to making The Ethembeni School great. Their involvement in our school year is a true reminder of just how blessed we are to have them.
The Ethembeni School and our learners would like to extend one more HUGE Thank You to The Robin Hood Foundation and ALL of their volunteers. The work you do is profound, and the world is better because of it.
