KidsCan! is a project of Child Welfare SA: Kleinmond. It is a non-profit organisation that helps all children, especially underprivileged & vulnerable children, become contributing members of society by offering after school care facilities and activities to improve their education and develop themselves.
Various Education, Faith, Community and Non-profit Organisations as well as the South African Police Service identified the need for a youth development project in the rural Hangklip-Kleinmond area, situated along the Cape Whale Coast of South Africa. Therefore, KidsCan! Youth Development was started and works amongst all communities.
To be able to do homework and study, a child needs resources and a safe environment conducive to learning. These are not available to many children. After school a large number of children are left without adult supervision since many parents work long hours out of necessity. These youngsters are very vulnerable.
