Jaimie Black knew exactly who that young man was as she had also listened to the interview on the radio. She was so overwhelmed with excitement and inspired to help Wandile and his incredible cause that she decided to help him achieve his goal of building a home for a family. Jaimie was completely taken in by the vision of Ubuntu Design Group and their slogan “I am because you are”. Jaimie has a real passion for helping others and thrives on making a difference to the community she lives in. She particularly enjoys to see children smile and laugh and to know that she can help a family build a home and give them new opportunities. She believes in the ethos of Crawford; being caring and empathetic, respectful of each individual’s needs, dignity and rights.
As a result, Jaimie Black, with the help of her wonderful mom, Claire, have decided to start their own fund raising to help Wandile. Jaimie strongly believes that if everyone in Ballito could donate R100, the house will be built in no time.
We, at Crawford Preparatory North Coast, are extremely proud of Jaimie as she is a reflection of a true Crawfordian and represents everything we believe in. She is a true ambassador of our REACH Program. We look forward to following your progress, Jaimie.
