Global Mental Health Awareness Challenge. I am raising money to support children in Kwazulu Natal. Learners from this area who attend Stanger Primary who face serious challenges with the majority of the children originating from very poverty stricken extremely poor socio economic backgrounds living in shanty townships. They are from areas where they have been neglected, deprived , raped , abused through violence and many of whom are child carers who are not even 11 years old. 40% of the children are orphans with 77% of those who have parents and who work earn less than £100 per month. There best cloths provided through sponsorship is their school uniform which they are very proud of representing as the school is a safe haven for many of these children who want to learn and succeed but many are traumatised and don't have access to professional medical expertise such as counselling , edi=ucational psychologists , medical treatment etc. Many of these students have to also be turned away as they cannot even afford the £30 annual school fees and are then left on their own with no access to any formal education.These girls and boys are an inspiration and through diversity in the true sense still smile and and are happy when they are in school . I would like to make their lives mucg=h easier and nice back to those who are far less fortunate and have to deal with the reality of not knowing what the next day brings or when their next meal will be.
I will be climbing Kilimanjaro with ten adults and 6 teenagers to not only raise awareness of the mental and physical challenge it takes to reach this goal but I am also teaching everyone remotely how to play volleyball which we will attempt to do at 5850 meters to break the record for the highest International volleyballl game ever achieved. This is all in support of my cause to help the children of my rainbow nation. Your donations and support would be so much appreciated and if you can open your hearts for this amax=zing cause no matter how small . It will make a difference
