Charity For Children & Senior Citizens
Kleyn Begin is a true South African Biltong Manufacturer. We sell our products at Wholesale prices and these depends on the quantity a person or retailer is looking for. While selling a favourite, wholesome South African Snack, (Biltong and not Jerky), we also dealt with different people from different communities. In them we saw a great need in many people’s lives and hearts. We found a great need for food in so many children and our older generation.
As a company we wanted to help. We started with the children. Way back in 2000 a feeding scheme was born, but it was unstructured. We just had to reach out with the minimum skills and recourses we had. As our focus then, was on children, we contacted schools to see what the need for food was. We did the only thing we could think off and phoned around, knocked on company’s doors, asked our friends and family to see if anyone would be interested in sponsoring food, clothing, shoes, toys etc. for the feeding scheme.
As things progressed so did the number of children, we fed. NGO’s contacted us for sponsorships and then we were ready to register our own Non-Profit Organization – Community Care Action Corporation (CCAC). From that point we grew in leaps and bounds. We are now feeding 1 580 Children and Pensioners, on a daily basis, from all kinds around the Western Cape.
We now have a very structured way of working and this also helps us to get the children off the streets and into the schools. We very seldom ask for monetary sponsorships because we don’t want to buy food. We want everyone we know, businesses and friends alike to give as they feel a need to give. We like to also do special giving over the Christmas period. These children and adults alike don’t know the meaning of a feast, nor what it is to get a dress or toy wrapped in pretty paper, we want to make a difference.
