LIV Durban is proud to announce that we have successfully released five more stars to go shine in this world.
On the 27th of November LIV Durban had its second, annual Release Dinner for children who have been released as stars – whether they have finished school (Grade 12) or have completed the AET course through LIV Training, or is released to start working.
This is the second group of students who are being released from LIV Durban and we are excited to see how they have fared in the final exams. Watch this space for further news.
The Release Dinner is proof that LIV can only do the work we do with the help of individuals and businesses who buy into the vision to rescue children, restore lives, raise leaders and release stars. With the help of some of our partners, we have managed to make the evening very special for these five students.
At the village, the atmosphere was electric as the students prepared for their big night. Bianca Warren, who designed and made the three girls’ dresses, came all the way to help them get dressed. It was such a special time as the students emerged from their houses, surrounded by their moms and siblings, and the rest of the LIV family awaited them with singing and dancing.
De Charmoy Estate has been super generous and offered their venue to us for the second year in a row. Lanterns and candles welcomed the guests as they arrived and Hire Standards made sure we could set the tables beautifully and Labola ensured that we had beautiful foliage and greenery arrangments everywhere. Bidvest McCarthy Toyota Ballito transported our guests of honour to the venue. We are Food donated dessert for the evening.
We have to mention the following individuals who contributed massively towards this event –
– Carita McCririe and Bongi for preparing the main course
– Pete Nichols for financial contribution towards food
– Clive and Suzanne Gengadoo for preparing the starters
– Mr and Mrs Tanganyiwa for donating ice cream
– Kevin Bingham for a very generous donation towards the boys’ suits.
