Caring and sharing

Last week Waterman Onions supported a great social project in South Africa. The South African nonprofit organization Little Libraries installs bookcases filled with books in disadvantaged villages and communities.

The complete transparency of the project inspired Waterman Onions to sponsor a library for the Alpha Preschool Centre, a shelter for children between the ages of 2 and 5. The care centre is located in Concordia, a small community near Springbok in the Northern Cape.

Many Dutch fresh produce visitors travel from Cape Town to Namibia, however not many know that just a few kilometers from the highway lies a beautiful, but really forgotten region called Namakwaland.

For this project we deliberately chose to go to this area where few people come and where few social projects are carried out. This allows us to create maximum impact with our contribution. One thing is certain: the people of Namakwaland are very happy with our Little Library!
