COCO’S FOUNDATION BUILD4THEFUTURE
The Build4TheFuture programme is designed to help young people (both in the UK and internationally) to understand the world around them.
To understand “anything is possible.”
VOLUNTEER TO HELP CHILDREN IN SOUTH AFRICA
Build4TheFuture provides homes and shelter for child-headed families in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa.
What do we mean by a child-headed family? Families where orphans are living on their own and without the love, guidance and support of parents.
In this region there are about 9,000 orphans. Many of their parents have died from AIDS or related illnesses, and the children live in groups for safety. It is not unusual for 20 children to be living in one house.
We have Five team members joining the charity for trips in 2018.
In august 2018 Emma Hobden & Evie Chapman will be traveling with a larger group to help build a house for a group of children.
In October 2018 three others will travel out. Celina Zomer, Kiki Cavie (with husband Tony) and Gary Young, will be joining a trip to build;ld another house in the same region of KwaZulu-Natal South Africa.
Over the next 18 months we will be completing a number of events to help raise the money needed to travel out and build the houses. £2,300 each thats a massive £11,500 we need to get before we travel out.
Anything you can do to help, anything you could offer us to raffle or sell or just plain old cash sponsor to our Just giving page would be amazing and very much appreciated.
