About us

Registration : We are registered as non profit 066-865-NPO and a Section 18a organisation PBO 930031579. 


The entire project is run by over 90 enthusiastic volunteers who distribute the e'Pap, monitor it's usage and support their schools in many other creative ways. They are drawn from many different parts of the Garden Route, belong to many different churches and social circles, but what brings them together is a common desire to serve and a common love for children.

Funded by our loyal donors:

Many of our donors are generous and loyal individuals living in the Garden Route area. However we receive invaluable support from individuals and associations throughout the world. Here is a sample of the wonderful donors who keep the e'Pap flowing: 

Garden Route Children's Trust (UK), Leisure Isle Festival; Methodist Churches - Knysna & Plettenberg Bay; Rotary (Knysna, Harwich/Dovercourt, Amersham and Plettenberg Bay); school children from Knysna, USA and UK; Knysna Motor Club, Harley Davidson Club;   ...  and many other individuals and associations from S. Africa, UK, Ireland, Germany, New Zealand & America. 

Together all these wonderful supporters provide a highly nutritious meal to over 4,500 children each school day.
