Next summer I will be travelling to the Goedgedacht trust in South Africa to work with underprivileged children. As well as funding the £1000 for my experience I am also hoping to be able to make a £1000 donation to the charity Path Out of Poverty (POP). The trust is a safe place for children to go and learn how to build a future for themselves.
When POP, the flagship program of the Goedgedacht Trust, was started in 1998, 95% of the farm children in the Riebeeksrivier valley had dropped out of school by year five and there was a high incidence of teenage pregnancy. POP now offers a wide range of services which include a crèche, a pre-school, support for children in primary and secondary school, after-school activities and help with homework, safe houses to go to for protection and food over weekends, work preparedness training for high school children and unemployed youth, youth leadership and life skills training, cultural exposure programs, sporting activities, health awareness education, school holiday programs, camps and community work.
I feel that this will be a life-changing experience for me, and all donations will be life-changing for the children living in the Riebeek Valley, so please donate what you can.
