We are so excited to kick off the year with two new board members: Megan Elliott and Jackie Mania.
Megan is an executive assistant at Accel Financial. She also happens to be Rotary Queen Extraordinaire.
Jackie is a federal grants manager for Oklahoma City Public Schools. She's a multi-talented runner.

We are so honored that they've joined the Vilakazi Foundation board. They're both smart, talented women, and we know they'll help the foundation reach even greater heights. Welcome, Megan and Jackie!
Our end-of-year donations are in and we are so proud to announce the results! We have about $6,000 in our bank account now!
So how does that translate to aid for children in need?
We now have enough money to buy school medical and sports kits for all 22 schools in the Knysna Education Trust. We also have enough to buy supply backpacks for 99 students!
Our goal is to provide all 22 school kits and 350 backpacks, which would be backpacks for 1 in 4 children in the schools. Now we're working toward filling those other 251 backpacks!
Thank you so, so, so much to our donors who have been so generous! We're a little more than 6 months away from our trip and $4,000 from our goal!
