Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who joined us for this year’s Brunch Benefit in New York, as well as to all who could not attend but still pledged so generously in support of Lalela’s life-changing art programmes. We were honoured to host you at such a beautiful event in celebration of our students and the impact Lalela has on the at-risk children and families that we work with in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The intimate event was held at Malibu Farm with guests enjoying a delicious brunch menu along with rousing performances by Morris Goldberg and Ojoyo, and a special appearance by Jonathan Butler.
Just before the paddle raise kicked off, we crossed over to Lalela’s Senior Programme Manager, Firdous Hendricks, in South Africa, who also interviewed two of our alumni – click here to watch – as well as a powerful spoken word performance by one of our current students.
Funds raised will enable Lalela to continue providing psychosocial services for children, joyfulness through the arts, and a way for learners to further develop life skills and academics that will help them excel in life after Covid-19.
