Awards Ceremony 2022


Congratulations!! For our end-of-year function, we had a fun day playing soccer on Fish Hoek beach and swimming. We also had an awards ceremony and braai to reflect back on what we did throughout the year, how we have grown as an organisation and to congratulate the children on completing a year of our Soccer Sunday Program. It is important that the kids feel a sense of accomplishment and that we acknowledge their hard work and dedication. A few boys go the extra mile in their self-discipline and always motivate their peers so we had specific awards for different [...]

Paint the Park – Masiphumelele Community Upliftment


Mandela Day 2022 Mandela Day 2022 was approaching and we spent a lot of time thinking about what would be the best way to give back to the community in Masiphumelele. We asked ourselves: “What would be a beautiful truly meaningful activity that we could look back and be proud of?” We decided to walk around to see what Masi needed and it quickly became very clear that the public play park was dirty and neglected. It used to be a place of joy and happiness for kids to gather and play but now looked like it had become [...]

Surfs Up! – Our Kids Learn to Surf at Muizenberg


Surf Therapy It was a sunny morning as the kids waited for the taxis each with a towel in their hand at their usual spot, Khoza Square, the heart of Masiphumelele township. There was a sense of excitement and hustle and bustle for the new day as the kids laughed and chatted about their surfing outing. Upon arrival at Muizenberg beach, all forty kids flooded out the taxis and ran towards the water. Before any actual surfing began, Busisa, who used to coach for Waves For Change, led a guided meditation and breath work in a circle. We were [...]

Aquarium Outing – World Ocean Day 2023


let's fall in love with the ocean When it comes to inspiring our future leaders to deeply care for Mother nature and particularly ocean conservation, firstly they need to have a connection and love for the ocean and all its creatures. Children from Masiphumelele arguably do not have a relationship with the ocean, it is foreign to them. Therefore, how can we expect them to be passionate about the cause? Our aim for this outing to the Two Oceans Aquarium was to get them to FALL IN LOVE with the ocean and its rich biodiversity. We dove into the [...]

Teaming with Ladels of Love – Nelson Mandela Day 2023


Breaking The Ubuntu World Record For Mandela Day 2023, Bartosch Foundation took forty children from our Soccer Sunday program in Masiphumelele township to participate in an event hosted by Ladles of Love. Collaboration is key to changing lives in South Africa and as a foundation that admires the work they do, we wanted to help them achieve their goal of having the highest number of volunteers possible for such a meaningful cause. In the end, they reached their Ubuntu world record of 6003 participants. Volunteers could choose from a variety of activities such as making sandwiches for the homeless, [...]

Summiting Table Mountain!


My first time up Table Mountain To us as Bartosch Foundation, going to Table Mountain was an exciting opportunity because it was our first time experiencing it, yet many of us have lived in Cape Town our whole lives. We went up the mountain by cable car and it took about 5 minutes to reach the top. The ride was very gentle and rotated while going upwards. My one friend was very scared though and needed Petya to stand with him. We took a walk around Table Mountain and we were amazed by the stunning city surrounded by the [...]
