I started volunteering at 1000 Hills Community Helpers (a registered NPO and PBO) on the 24 July 2017, I was 15 Years Old. December 2019, I will be celebrating my 18th Birthday.
I have had a priviledged Life. I have had a stable home environment; a loving and supportive Family; Private School Education that has allowed me to think outside the 'Box' and always been afforded the opportunity to do extra-mural activities outside of School.
I have had the priviledge of being able to travel abroad. I have had the priviledge to represent my Country Internationally and awarded Protea Colours for Karate.
My greatest priviledge however, has been to share my love of Karate at 1000 Hills Community Helpers.
Behind the many happy little faces, there are real struggles that my little people endure every day of their young lives. Struggles, I find hard to comprehend at times.
My greatest wish, would be to afford my little people the opportunity to experience a little of what I had at their age. For some, a Karate Suit may not seem like much. Many of my Grade R families save a little every Month towards the annual Grade R Graduation Ceremony. They use the money to buy a pretty little dress, outfit or a new pair of shoes. For many of these families within this Community, it is the first time a member of their family has had the opportunity to go too school.
I am fundraising for my little people, the target being R 100000.00. With this money, I would like to purchase them a Karate Suit and T Shirt each. I have obtained Quotations from a number of Suppliers.
