MFDF Campaigns

COLD FEET CAMPAIGN

Cold Feet is a campaign aimed at challenging individuals to spend a cold winter’s day going to work without shoes. We would like people to know that there are children who spend every day without a simple pair of school shoes just to get an education. The campaign will run throughout the winter months. We ask that each person donate money or shoes when participating or should choose go a day without shoes.

Vision

The aim is to get as many donations as possible to buy school shoes or donations of shoes to children who can’t afford school shoes. A platform to provide under underprivileged learners with school shoes.

Mission

Strive to make a difference to underprivileged learners that do not have proper or no shoes at all by restoring the learner’s self-esteem in donating a pair of shoes.

Value:

The cold feet campaign’s worth is to ensure that every child is wearing a pair of shoes to school and not obliged to walk barefoot to school and back.

Objectives:

  • To ensure that every child is wearing a pair of shoes to school
  • To provide support to underprivileged children and ensure their well-being
  • To uplift a child’s self-confidence
  • Foster a different environment
  • In 2017 Mthethwa Family Development Foundation will introduce the MFDF Cold Feet Run/walk. All contributions made will go towards buying shoes for the children for the underprivileged for the winter season.

    TRIPLE P CAMPAIGN (Pledge A Pad)

    Sanitary pads and panties seem like they aren’t vital and many times underestimated expenses until you meet someone who sees it as a luxury. Month after month many fail to afford this necessity especially in the communities we operate in. We couldn’t sit back and do nothing; even though people shy away from the truth but we need to educate and make a difference. We want to teach and build a woman’s self-esteem by teaching them to maintain their self-confidence even their menstruation season. To remain hygienic and build a confident generation of women in South Africa. To also reduce the absenteeism rate in schools and assist with a basic need many undermine.

    Vision

    MFDF aims to create a culture of reading in township schools. Pupils experience reading as a pleasure and not as an obligation.

    Mission

    This initiative will be achieved by supplying short story books to participating schools in preparing for an annual competition final.

    Value

    This will encourage children to devote themselves in literature through reading aloud from different books and amongst their peers. This will widen their spectrum and horizons in their studies and will also stimulate their mental abilities.

    Objectives

    To empower learners with good reading techniques like:

  • Clear articulation
  • Correct accentuation.
  • Adequate reading speed.
  • Understanding the content of the book.
  • Create a culture of reading for fun in schools.
  • ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN

    One thing we all seem to agree is that there is an ever-continuing problem with bullying in our schools from primary level throughout to high school.

    Vision

    To eliminate or reduce Bullying as much as possible and create a learning atmosphere conducive for all the learners within the school environment.

    Mission

    Teaching effective solutions of identifying and how to respond to all methods of bullying through raising awareness, interaction with the learners and showing the effects of bullying on a broader scale.

    Objectives:

  • To educate about the effects of bullying and different types of bullying.
  • To protect victims from bullying and ensure that the harm is not permanent.
  • Ensure education systems teach more on the issues of bullying.
  • Get professional help for those affected be it the victim or the attacker.
  • Get the community to work hand in hand to be able to be easily approachable for learners to seek assistance from them to avoid tragedies.
  • ITLHOKOMELE CAMPAIGN

    The country as a whole is losing a large number of individuals due to road rules not being followed correctly. The campaign will let young children take responsibility for road safety as well as road rules from a young age.
