Message from the GRCT Trustees

Juliet Fellows, a longstanding supporter of the GRCT, visited these schools last year: “It was both humbling and inspiring to meet all the people on the ground who were delivering the e’Pap and the teachers looking after the children in often very difficult circumstances. They all said how important the e’Pap has been for the children’s health and energy levels.”

Our new project in Kleinmond is co-ordinated by Alta Van Wyk. She runs a school in this area, an area which suffers from high levels of unemployment and alcohol and substance abuse. She is delighted to help make e’Pap breakfasts available to children in this community.
