FCA and Edenvale Child Welfare: Together for Social Sustainability

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

At First Consulting Alliance (FCA), we believe in the power of community and the importance of social sustainability. For many years, we have been working closely with Edenvale Child Welfare, supporting their efforts through various outreach initiatives. Today, we want to raise awareness about the challenges faced by organizations like Edenvale Child Welfare due to government subsidy cuts. We cannot allow the crucial work they do to stop, as it would result in hardships that no child should ever have to endure. FCA has made contributions to assist with immediate needs, but we recognize that ongoing support is essential to ensure the well-being of these children. We invite both individuals and corporations to join us in making a difference.


One of the primary needs of Edenvale Child Welfare is providing groceries for their Pinocchio Educare and outreach food parcels. Items such as mince, Vienna sausages, chicken fillets, wors, polony, frozen vegetables, bottled beetroot, fruit, cheese, biscuits, juices, rice, mealie meal, samp, macaroni, spaghetti, sugar, milk/milk powder, and non-perishable foods are essential for sustaining these children. Tinned fish, tuna, onion/tomato mix, baked beans, and tinned veggies are also in high demand. FCA has contributed, but the need for ongoing food security remains.


To ensure a safe and comfortable environment for the children, Edenvale Child Welfare requires support in repairs and maintenance. Contributions can include toiletries such as toilet paper, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and razors. Additionally, providing kiddies' tables and chairs, interlocking rubber mats for Educare classes, cleaning agents like Handy Andy and dishwasher liquid, and sponsoring repairs and maintenance activities like damp proofing and gutter repairs would greatly benefit the organization.


Edenvale Child Welfare also needs assistance with administrative and Educare stationery supplies. These include items like crayons, playdough, retractable wax crayons, pencil crayons, glue sticks, A4 cardboard files, staples, file fasteners, plastic sleeves, and wall charts for the Educare classes (numbers, letters, etc.).


If you feel compelled to make a personal or corporate contribution, we encourage you to reach out to Jenny at administrator@edenvalechildwelfare.co.za. She can provide further information on how you can make a difference. Whether it's sponsoring a child's education, providing supplies, or supporting social workers' advertisements, your help will have a direct and positive impact on the lives of these children.


First Consulting Alliance is proud to support Edenvale Child Welfare in their mission to provide a safe and nurturing environment for vulnerable children. Together, we can ensure that these children have access to essential resources, educational opportunities, and a chance at a brighter future. By extending a helping hand, whether through food and goods donations, repair and maintenance support, or administrative and Educare stationery contributions, we can create sustainable change and promote social well-being.


Join us in making a lasting impact on the lives of these children who deserve a chance to thrive.
