1 May 2012 - 10 Years old! Info for our visitors

BIA turns 10 years old next year and we are planning a full week programme to celebrate this achievement. You as godparents, sponsors and friends are all welcome to join in the festivities. We could not have come this far without you and the more the merrier!
We are busy finalising the programme and we would like to give you a glimpse of what you can expect.  Join us on a fun walk with all the 420 BIA children down Plettenberg Bay’s Main Street, attend two major parent meetings where all children and their parents are gathered to view some of the children’s amazing talents, visit our Homework Centres and experience first hand the children at work, meet our Wittedrift High School group of learners and let them tell you how they have managed to succeed and spend quality time with your godchildren in sunny South Africa.

In order to make your stay convenient and well priced, we have sourced a number of hotels and guesthouses who are willing to offer special rates. An information sheet has been complied with accommodation and also includes information on airports, distances and useful websites etc to make your travel arrangements lighter work. For more information you can also contact Remi De Backer: remi.de.backer@telenet.be
