Every year, TWT fundraisers drive to the township of Leseding outside Vaalwater to visit Lethabo Kids Club.
The Waterberg Trust has been supporting their ‘Back to School’ project by helping to equip the children with school uniform, school shoes and bags.
This whips up enthusiasm for going to school where disadvantaged children are fed and cared for.
The children are sponsored with one item each. They normally chose school shoes. These cost approximately £10 a pair and last for a long time. The shoes are purchased and fitted locally.
Fundraisers were able to meet Marilyn Cook who has been running the project for more than eighteen years and is now assisted by the youth who first came as small children.
The team heard of her plans to provide sponsorship for tertiary education of the youth who have shown commitment to the project and help with the little ones.
The children love singing and put on a performance hugely appreciated by their visitors
