Keep Them Safe Project provides after-school activities, sports, and leadership opportunities for children and teenagers in Cape Town, South Africa who could otherwise be at risk for gang exposure or violence. Now we have a chance to also provide them a life-changing opportunity to travel abroad and develop their leadership potential by attending the June 2020 Youth Conference in The Netherlands.
The invitation to the conference comes from Global Explorations, an organization in the Netherlands promoting global awareness and citizenship. We have been partnering with Global Explorations to promote inter-cultural exchange, as they bring youth to Cape Town. Now, for the second time, there is a chance for travel in the other direction. The first group of teens from Keep Them Safe had an amazing experience in the Netherlands in January 2019, and we are excited to have this opportunity available for a second group in the coming year.
We cannot make this trip without funds for airfare, and that is why we are appealing to the public for support. Thank you for working with us to help broaden horizons and build the capacities of our youth!
