After riding across the Waterberg on horseback, TWT riders drove 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. They are 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.
On their way to Johannesburg airport, some of the riders visited Kamotsogo sewing project, a community not-for-profit enterprise that employs women living with HIV/Aids.
Others stayed on at Jembisa where they enjoyed the experience of being driven up the Palala River.
And came across a number of things of interest including an agama.
They then lay quietly on the bank taking a well-earned rest after meeting the challenges of The Waterberg Trust Challenge Ride and raising significant funds for projects in the area.
