Adopt a Granny initiative in full swing

SANZAF’s popular Adopt a Granny initiative, now in its third year, forms part of Operation Winter Warmth Campaign and is already in full swing.

The initiative not only aims to satisfy the material needs of the elderly by providing them with appropriate clothing for the winter months, but it also seeks to extend a hand of compassion and love to them so that they are made to feel special.

SANZAF is partnering with over 20 high schools nationally (i.e. over 1000 learners) to treat some 510 grannies to a shopping spree, making this initiative among the largest volunteer-driven programmes of its kind.

SANZAF will be spending in excess of R500 000 on the initiative and each granny will be allocated an amount of ranging from R500 to R1000 to purchase clothing items of their choice assisted by the learners.

Each school has identified and "adopted" 20 grannies from their surrounding communities, as well as matched two learners per granny to accompany them on a subsidised “shopping spree”.

The ADOPT-A-GRANNY initiative hopes to achieve several things, including:

  • Creating awareness of the needs and plight of the elderly
  • Building socialisation skills among learners
  • Affording the grannies an opportunity to exercise choice by allowing them to choose what they need and want, thereby giving our elderly back their dignity.

The schools involved in this initiative include:

  • Al Aqsa  High School (Extension 10)
  • Al Azhar High School (Gauteng)
  • Azaadville Muslim School
  • Benoni Muslim School
  • Bosmont Muslim School
  • Johannesburg Muslim School
  • Lenasia Muslim School
  • Nur-ul-Islam School (Gauteng)
  • Roshnee Islamic School (Gauteng)
  • Apax Muslim School (Gauteng)
  • Al Huda Muslim School (Gauteng)
  • Al Asr Educational Institute (Gauteng)
  • Alghazali College (Gauteng)
  • PMT Sunni School (Gauteng)
  • Tshwane Muslim School (Gauteng)
  • Kimberley Girls’ High School
