Hamba Bamba Funda Hosts Successful Padel Charity Fun Day


Hamba Bamba Funda (HBF), a distinguished Section 18A non-profit organisation dedicated to early childhood development from conception to 2 years, is thrilled to announce the overwhelming success of their Padel Charity Fun Day Event. The event, meticulously organised by ElevenTwentyTwo Events and held at Jozi Padel in Sandton Johannesburg on October 22nd, surpassed all expectations, leaving participants and organisers alike filled with gratitude and joy.

“I have no words, only tears of Joy! The event exceeded my expectations,” said Monja Boonzaier, Founding Director of Hamba Bamba Funda.

The Charity Event aimed to raise funds for HBF’s Mother and Baby initiative, which provides crucial support to mothers and their babies (0-2 years) from underprivileged communities through weekly classes at their centre in Dobsonville, Soweto. HBF firmly believes in the pivotal importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s life, fostering their potential through Movement, Touch, and Play.
