The kids club held every Friday afternoon is a program designed for the children in the Westlake informal settlement. Approximately 350- 450 children attend our weekly kids club. The program was devised initially to get the children off the street and to provide a safe space for them to go on Friday afternoons. It has since evolved into a program where we aim to educate, feed and spend time with these children teaching them live skills, arts & crafts and invite special guests to interact with the children and share their life stories.
We have trained young leaders in the community to be role models and to assist with the Friday program. The young leaders are trained to run kids club themselves in future thereby allowing us to split the larger group into smaller age appropriate groups to focus on special activities per age group.
Apart from the young leaders there are many faithful volunteers from the community, public, schools and other churches.
