I have known Amy Ostroff, the co-founder of Love to Langa through volunteering for Art Goes To School ' where we teach art appreciation to students from Kindergarten through 8th grade in our local public schools. Her devotion for the underprivileged kids in South Africa prompted my husband and I to make regular donations to her charity. Over the years, we have seen the great work Love to Langa has done to teach, provide facilities, photography workshops, Swim Academy ' to improve the education and conditions of kids who would otherwise not have had the chance. For my 50th birthday, I chose Love to Langa as my charity in lieu of gifts so that I could get my friends and family involved in this beautiful work. I was thoroughly touched by the lovely video they sent me with the kids saying 'Thank You.'

Love to Langa is a way to donate for education, for kids and for people who truly need the help of those who have more than enough. The photos of the kids are the reward for your donations; precious beyond words.

My Mother and I visited the Philippi Children’s Centre and had an absolutely moving experience. The children laughed, smiled, and hugged us repeatedly. The furnished classroom was incredible, as was the new swimming pool that had just opened. It was easy to see how much these beautiful facilities helped the children!

The devotion and support given to Love to Langa is exceptional! It is a pleasure for me to support a group that gives so much and does so much. Our world would be a better place if there were more people involved in helping others as this group is. I am so proud to support Love to Langa in their many projects. I hope they have a bright future in continuing their selfless work.

I watch what these guys have done for a long time now.
They bring smiles to so many under privileged children's faces.
How they do it and why do it is wonderful.
