Our primary beneficiaries are underserved school children, residing in low-income communities, between the ages of 5 and 13 years of age. Within this grouping we distinguish an additional beneficiary group as children living with disabilities including physical and mental challenges. Our programme was birthed out of the perceived need that most children in South Africa does not enjoy optimum physical and personal development opportunities during their forming years. We have established that the education system, in many instances, fail to provide children with an environment for positive and holistic development.
We believe that children deserve the opportunity to participate in a safe and secure space and are committed to ensure that everyone accepts their responsibilities to safeguard children from harm and abuse. This means that we have implemented and train instructors to follow procedures to protect children and report to the appropriate authorities any concerns about their welfare.
