Twenty Years Strong in Twenty-Twenty…
On the 10th of March 2000, we had the privilege of welcoming our very first baby into our hearts and home – the Botshabelo Babies Home was now officially a reality! A week later and we had 5 children in the home!
Fast forward 20 years to the 10th of March 2020, and here we stood on the beautiful lawns of Urban Life Church to mark this incredible milestone. We celebrated every single one of the 223 children we have cared for in 2 decades. We praised God for His faithfulness and generosity in our story! We honoured the pioneers that laid the foundations of life-change for hundreds of families. We reminisced on the early days. And we realised anew the impact our education programmes have on 4000 preschoolers.
This was our “family birthday brunch” of chocolate cake, faith and fun. Every Botshabelo staff member, and all of Urban Kids were there, plus Urban Life teams and a few special guests. It was our moment around the proverbial dining room table to celebrate.
We believe that 20 years of transforming lives is a spectacular milestone and so we intend to celebrate it in as many ways as we can! From small moments to our Big Birthday Bash (date yet to be set due to Coronavirus restrictions).
We hope you’ll celebrate with us. We hope that as we celebrate together, our hearts would knit closer and our partnerships will grow stronger. We’re looking forward to our next decade or two… ready and waiting, amidst the chaos of today, for the hope and life-change of the future!
To our first 20, and to our next… Who is with us?
