Upcoming Holiday Programmes in our Youth Centers!

Every year at the end of June, our Murraysburg and Beaufort West youth centers hold holiday programmes for local children who are off from school. We focus on empowering the children through various activities, promoting a healthy lifestyle and teaching them to be responsible citizens.

This year, our Beaufort West youth center is planning various activities for the local youth, including soccer and netball, a trip to Murraysburg for joint-center interaction, an Outreach Day, arts and crafts, and social dialogues. By encouraging children to participate in fun, educational exercises, we hope to give them information that will transcend to life lessons on children’s rights, child trafficking, child labour, culture, etc. Additionally, meals will be provided for the children. The estimated cost for this programme is R22,500.00, about R150.00 per child attending the three week program; the daily cost per child is R10.00. Currently, there are 150 children projected to attend.

Similarly, our Murraysburg youth center is also preparing for its holiday programme. Our coordinators here have lined up various activities, too. They will also be providing meals consisting of coffee, soup, bread, fruit, and chips. The estimated cost for this center’s programme is R10,500.00, with an estimated cost of R7 per child, per day, or R105 for the entire time; 100 children are expected to attend the three week programme.

We are asking our supporters and friends to get involved by helping with donations. You can either choose to sponsor a child for the estimated cost-per-child, or you can donate any amount directly to one of the programmes. We understand that hectic work and life schedules make it difficult for our public to participate daily, therefore this is a wonderful way to get involved and make a difference in a child’s life! Getting on board is simple: just write a check to Anex, designate towards the programme, and feel the immediate sense of accomplishment. Also, stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram accounts for picture updates of the programmes as they unfold!
