It was wonderful to see Adventure racers and the Orienteering people together with the SOAPkidz organisers spending so much of their own time to organise an event of this calibre to give some of the less priviliged children in their community an outing.
It was heart warming to see the boys and girls from the Abraham Kriel home in Langlaagte learning to read topography maps, fishing out where north, south, east and west was.
Orientating themselves and finding bearings on the hiking trails. I saw caring and interested volunteers quiding the children on the routes and nuturing and “giving” into their lives.
Together they were also on a clean-up campaign in the reserve. As a first time volunteer it was worth while experience from which I received much more than what I gave.
If you are interested in getting involved into a wonderful Sunday morning outing and building into another child’s life, please contact SOAPkidz at Noeksie@soapkidz.org
