L2L KidsCan ! Teamwork
A short while ago, a mass of children from KidsCan poured out onto the Kleinmond beach to complete the L2L KidsCan Charialk. These children were sponsored and challenged to complete the beach walk in aid of the KidsCan After-school Care Centre in Kleinmond.
The initiative has its origins in a Hermanus group of ladies who set out each year to raise funds for charities. Their venture is called Lighthouse-2-Lighthouse, which defines the scope of their greater walk later in the year, in which they walk over three days, and in so doing, raise more funds for charity.
For six years now our After-school Centre has taken underprivileged children off the streets after school and provided them with a protected environment in which to complete their homework, and supplied them with a wholesome meal
every day. In this way every child is properly prepared to enter school the following day fully equipped with homework complete and daily problems resolved.
The Centre is now setting out to raise sufficient funds to build on two new classrooms and an ablution block, in this way allowing twice the number of children to attend and benefit from this sympathetic environment. It is hoped that this fundraising effort will help them to reach a target that will result in the initial building of these new facilities later this year.
Special thanks to all our generous sponsors. We value your energetic support.
