Kids and teens in Sweetwaters South Africa are facing major challenges in their lives: More than half of the young adults are HIV+, most children don’t live with their parents, less than half of the adults have graduated from high school.These kids are living in a world where the odds are stacked against them from the start.
iThemba Projects mentors focus on breaking the cycles that generate these social problems through mentoring and education. Camp is a huge opportunity for our mentors to influence these kids!
Crafting for Camp is a partnership between iThemba Hope Trust, Restoration Hope , iThemba Denmark and iThemba Projects. We’re all working together to bring hope to these kids and teens in Sweetwaters through mentorship and education. We’ve seen the impact that iThemba camps have on kids from Sweetwaters community, and we want to be a part of it!
