 Petrus de Klerk's Three Peaks Challenge for Mamelani Projects 2016

Petrus de Klerk's Three Peaks Challenge for Mamelani Projects 2016

Personal message

This year I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to run the Three Peaks Challenge, a mountain running trail of some 50km which involves ascending the three major peaks above Cape Town, namely Devils Peak, Table Mountain and Lions Head, and returning to Green Market Square after each ascent!

I have decided to dedicate my race to raising awareness and funds for an amazing NGO called Mamelani Projects. Mamelani is a registered NPO that runs a Youth Development Programme that works specifically with young people who have grown up in a Children’s Home. When they turn 18, they are forced to move on from the system. Many of these young people are not ready for this transition and without adequate support, after years of stability, they struggle to cope with this new reality.

Mamelani Projects has 2 flagship programmes – one that contributes to community health and wellbeing and another that supports youth in transition. Their Youth Development Programme supports young people who have grown up in state care (Child and Youth Care Centres and former Children’s homes) who, when they turn 18, need to move on from these institutions. Mamelani’s Programme ensures that these young people do not fall through the gaps at this critical time and ensures that they are emotionally and practically prepared for the next chapter of their lives.

The R2000 that is raised ensures that Mamelani is able to offer learning opportunities to these young people in ways that truly enable them to have the confidence to take the next steps towards reaching their own personal goals and the resilience to deal with the challenges that they are faced with. The support we provide focuses on resilience building activities, support for further education, and the opportunity to start a paid internship and ultimately prepare for the world of work.

Please help me reach my goal of raising R2000 to create these kinds of opportunities for the young people that Mamelani works with.
