KCC at talent show

Another great day for Kgomotso Children Centre. On saturday, 06 August, they performed in a talent show. They won competitions in junior dance and poetry and were runners-up in singing.

KCC has had many performances with their dance groups and the talent show they hold every year in spring always has been a huge success. This time they performed their talents in competition with other centres and they did very well. In the category of singing they received a certificate for second place. In poetry they even were voted in first place. Same in junior dance where they came in as winners, too. This competition made them come back to KCC with their first ever trophy which they received for dancing. Congratulations, boys and girls!

In March, KCC managed to buy a land with the help of German support organization Tshwane Township Kids e.V.. The land has been paid for and the cleaning processes has started. The second phase of fencing the yard will start soon as KCC is now in a process of finding suitable fence. 

Since early this year, kids have been enjoying a fun playground. All of that has exercised their creativity and motoric skills and they socialized with others. Besides the social skills that they develop personal skills also become a core advantage that can be achieved.

KCC has come up with a community soccer team for all age groups especially to those that are out of school. We have teams from under 11 to masters’ which are boys over 21 years of age. So far, we have 40 boys from around the township.

We are still collecting clothes from communities and individuals. Children who need clothes are given a chance to pick anything they like. This program will be part of the new KCC activities. Those who want to give clothes, shoes or blankets can contact the centre or drop off at the centre.

We are looking forward to working with your children and youth this year.

Best wishes to our community as we work together to achieve more things this year.

On Youth Day 2021 Kgomotso Children Centre opened a new branch in Winterveld. Almost 10 years after moving from the original place under a tree in Winterveld to establish the youth centre at Block NN in Soshanguve KCC is happy to be back in Winterveld, again.

After another closure due to the lockdown situation KCC has finally opened again in February. While some activities are still restricted due to level 3 lockdown everyone at KCC was eager to start again with their work. 

Looking back at 2020, a year that has been very difficult to all of us, we want to thank those who supported us throughtout the year. After we had started with the We Can't Eat Air Campaign in April more organisations and people approached KCC to offer their help.

On the third day of the "We Can't Eat Air - Campaign" the remaining families received their long-awaited food parcels. The first phase of the campaign has now come to an end. We thank everyone who helped to make it a great success.
