What’s in a name?

Categories: April 2018,Blog

We hope you like our new banner. The change has been made in conjunction with a small change to our name and branding design. Abraham Kriel remains the core identity under which this organisation will continue into the future, but we wanted to better represent all our services and simplify matters by having one name only. Retaining Abraham Kriel as the core of the name is an acknowledgement of our debt to this great man, who established the institution on a firm basis of Christian beliefs and values.
After a lot of soul searching and consultation the name Bambanani was decided upon to replace Childcare/Kindersorg/Abontli Babantwana and Bathlokomedi baBana. It is easy on the tongue and the meaning unity or togetherness symbolises our bonds as an alternative family for the children and youth that we care for.
We will introduce this change to our name without a big fanfare, but you will see the new branding appear on our website and social media platforms, as well as on our new letterhead.
Please feel free to comment and give your feedback. After all, you are a vital part of the unity of this community of people who make a difference for the better.
