On Saturday 27th April 2013, Pearly Grey are once again organising their Dorada/Ingani Yami Golf Tournament at Golf Costa Adeje. Sponsored by Dorada and organised by Pearly Grey Ocean Club and Golf Costa Adeje, this is the fourth year the golf tournament has been held and is a hugely popular annual event where everyone has a brilliant time while helping to raise funds to give children a new life.
When Yvonne and Roger Greig travelled to iXopo in the KwaZulu Natal region of South Africa to visit their friend Jayne who had lost three children and a grandchild to AIDS, they wept at the sight of the mounds of earth that surrounded the communities of the hills and valleys. HIV/Aids was devastating communities and creating millions of orphans for whom the future held nothing but bleakness and hopelessness.
From those visits, the idea and then the project of Ingane Yami was born.
Giving orphaned children a real home, with a mother, in a village with the support of the community is the aim of the Ingane Yami project.
To date, the project has built its first cluster of five homes within the village and the first ‘family’ are now resident – Ruth, the house mother, her two biological sons and three foster children. Rescued from abject poverty, the three orphans are now part of a loving family home and are thriving under the care of their mother and their new big brothers. The rest of the completed houses are about to be furnished and the project is recruiting more house mothers to take up residence in the village.
For the past five years, Pearly Grey Ocean Club has been supporting Ingane Yami to realise their aim of giving hope to those born with none. Committing to helping with the building of homes, to date they have raised enough funds to complete one home and are half way to building a second.
