A Week of Impact and Growth at KTD196

Whew what a full on week followed by a hectic weekend where KTD196 had the privilege of training 24 new Adult Leaders and introducing them to our Children’s Program (Scouts). We also had 4 staff from 2 different organizations attend, one a school in Steelport and the other a Children’s Program based in Lebowakgomo, please check the map below to see where we are now working.

On Monday afternoon after the training finished on Sunday, I received photos from Steelport that they had already started. Many of the participants in the training are from our Self Help Groups, they will be returning to their villages to start the program and bring real change to their communities. It is wonderful to see.

It is so exciting. We are reaching more people because of your support. All of the participants could not pay for the cost of the training, the manuals, catering, accommodation, transport etc and that is where you came in. Your support enabled us to provide top quality training to people that otherwise could not afford to come.

On the Global Giving site, I have put up that it costs us US$1,500 to help 50 kids to go to camp, that is the same cost for 25 adults to attend a 3day intensive training due to resources required. We now have to start planning for a 5day Warrant training with these participants and 5day skills camp. The cost goes up to $2,000. Please if you would like to assist us add a not to the donation saying “Training Adults” and I will know how to allocate the gift.

We are changing the face of families and communities together.

I appreciate your support and ongoing commitment to Keep The Dream196 and the children, women and families we serve.
