Northwood primary school is based in the Cape Flats suburbs of greater Cape Town, South Africa. The area is ridden with poverty, gangsterism, drug abuse and social evils common in many urban settings across the globe. This is the environment many children in Mitchell's Plain area experiences today, whilst still struggling to overcome the hardship of Apartheid legacies inherited from the old South Africa. The educators of Northwood Primary are trying to empower and creating opportunities for the students who have the potential but have been marginalised by historic circumstances. The leadership camp will foster team spirit, tolerance and self confidence. We would appreciate any support you can provide to assist our youth aspirations to develop our community amongst these students.
