Hi

A group of locals from Pietermaritzburg have committed to getting fit in order to ride the Hill to Hill race in September, in aid of a local charity called Eden Kid's.

Our goal is to raise awareness around the work done by this organisation whilst also raising some much needed funds.

The Eden Kid's Foundation was  established in response to a need at the Masukwana Informal Settlement, Pietermaritzburg, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. This community is situated between the old 'East Street' and the N3 along the Dorp Spruit river. These may be the least privileged children in the so called "Aids capital of Africa."  Children meet in the afternoons with community workers from a local agency, but the conditions are very difficult. There was no running water, no play facilities and no toilets. Pastor Joel felt a calling to get involved and over the last 2 years has built a relationship of trust with the children and community workers. The kids have started attending sunday school, camps and holiday clubs organised in conjunction with the church. He has helped the children by  establishing a source of clean running water and a flush toilet. Pastor Joel has initiated the Eden Kid's Garden project and a secured play area with swings and jungle gym. The children walk 3km every day from school to meet in the dilapidated Tatham Cricket Pavillion for homework, lifeskills, sport, crafts and spiritual input with the community workers. Pastor Joel has brought another dimension to the program by networking with individuals, companies and organisations to secure aid and support. Plans are afoot by the local authority to demolish the building in favour of a housing program which would leave the children with no where to meet.  To find a solution to this problem, Pastor Joel has established the Eden Kids Foundation Trust, which is in the process of being registered as an N.P.O.
