This blog is a lot of children from South Africa who wanted to tell you more about themselves. We will be introducing everyone around the globe to our Aphiwe Youth group.
There are about 20 – 35 children between the ages of 10 to 20years who attend, all of them come from the area within the township. We teach them Biblical lessons and life skill lessons every Sunday and some of them then stay on to attend the memorial meeting too.
We hold many jumble sales and big screen movie nights to raise money for them to be able to attend church and youth camps. They all have to pay a set amount but can’t afford the full amounts for the camps so we try help as much as we can.
At the moment we are working on raising funds for them to attend a youth camp from 2-7 Dec 2011. Any donations to sponsor some of them will be greatly appreciated. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Lets introduce you to the first few children…
