Due to the economic circumstances of the township, most children remain on the streets during school vacation. Izizwe Projects has helped provide a safe and fun environment for them by organizing a Holiday Program. During the Holiday Program, each kid participates in activities such as sports, arts & crafts, dancing and fun & games. A talent show on the last day is something the kids all love! At the end of every day we provide all the kids with a small lunch and some cool drinks so they can go home safe and sound.
Each of our previous Holiday Programs has attracted over 200 children per day from all around the township. With our December 2017 Holiday Program as our best one until now, where we were able to help around 330 kids, every day! This could not have been done without the donations of the lovely ladies Mia and Firhana, who we are extremely thankfull for to have met last year!
