Our mission is to expose children to natural environments, where the breath of God on their skin, will fill them with awareness, passion, laughter, trust, compassion, love, acceptance, freedom and companionship.
With the help of the various outdoor
activity groups - mountaineering, canoeing, mountain biking,
hiking and orienteering clubs, as well as volunteers who help
out with supervision, we teach these
children about: NATURE, THE PRESERVATION THEREOF, SELF PRESERVATION, LIFE, FRIENDSHIP, FIRST AID, PREVENTION & LIVING WITH HIV & AIDS, TRUST, LOYALTY, COURAGE, COMMUNICATION, TEAM WORK, BUSINESS, MARKETING & SOCIAL SKILLS ETC.
Every activity incorporates ‘ENVIRONMENTAL CLEAN UP PROJECTS’ with a prize for the team who collects the most litter.

"There are no real words to adequately describe this event. Being a first time volunteer with SOAPkidz has really opened my eyes and gave me a whole new perspective of how much work and effort actually goes into a SOAPkidz event. It gave me the chance to interact with the children in a way that I have never been able to before. I was mesmerized by how little they needed to put such a big smile on their faces! A simple example of this, were the baskets that we made. If we had more time, I am pretty sure they could have spent the whole day just decorating and showing off their baskets.
The highlight of the day was most certainly the dancing and singing with the Water Wise mascot, Manzi. I could not help but smile and dance along with my group, especially once I saw Noeksie join in. The joy on her face was priceless.
When I first arrived, I had no idea what to expect but WOW, I am glad I came. The first hand experience and pleasure I got working with the children has definitely inspired me to be more active with events like this.
Thank you to everybody who made this event not only possible, but successful. I wish to see plenty more events like this in the future."
"There were two representatives from JNF Walter Sisulu Environmental Centre in Mamelodi who attended the workshop. They introduced the SOAPkidz Volunteers to how nature works.
Overall, I learnt a lot about how nature gives to us and the importance of looking after our environments. For example, plants help to soak up the rainfall helping to control soil erosion and flooding.
Plants play a major role in our environments; they provide us with food and oxygen, filter water as well as shade. Nature also recycles by breaking down dead plants and animal material, compost is created.
We can all contribute to reduce the carbon dioxide levels in the air by planting more trees, avoid littering and polluting our environments and we should always recycle!
