Childline Gauteng, an NPO who protects some of the most vulnerable children in our society through services and programmes and Outward Bound South Africa, an NPO that runs adventure-based learning interventions in the outdoors, have teamed up to raise funds for 40 children who need your help.
These children in need are currently under the care of Sunlight Safe House - a nighttime place of safety for youth whose home circumstances are not conducive to their safety and wellbeing. This 5-day wilderness experience will be a life-changing journey where these children will tap into their inner resources, learn new tools, work as a team and experience the wonders of nature.
Overcoming and participating in perceived ‘high risk’ activities such as rock climbing, hiking and abseiling will become metaphors for life’s challenges, transforming these experiences into much-needed life skills.
Our mission is to instil confidence, resilience, leadership and hope in these incredible children. We want to empower them with the inner resources they need to be truly unstoppable, and we need your help!
