MANDELA DAY ’19: OFF-SITE CHALLENGE – RELIEF AID HAMPERS

 

 

 

 

 

What’s the 4-1-1 on the RELIEF AID HAMPER Challenge:

CHALLENGE DETAILS:

CONTEXT:

The Domino Foundation works with a number of families and households that live below the poverty line of R534 per month. On top of this abject poverty, often these families are further impoverished due to crisis and disasters beyond their control (Flooding, shack fires, death of a breadwinner etc.). Domino works with these families to ensure long-term support and opportunities for education are realised, allowing a family to break the cycle of poverty. But during this process, immediate and crisis relief aid is necessary while the long-term strategy is outworked.

 

YOUR TASK:

Run collection drives, encourage your suppliers and partners to give and gather as many items from our RELIEF AID HAMPERS as possible so you and your team can sort and pack much needed Relief Aid hampers at your office on Mandela Day.
