People and Gardens CIC.
We are planning to take a group of vulnerable people with learning disabilities to Durban South Africa, to volunteer at The Genesis Project, which supports the local community which has been affected by Hiv/Aids. 49% of the families have lost 1 or both parents, and we will be able to volunteer at their youth club, hospice and day centre.
The visit will be life changing, improve the education of those we support, broaden their understanding of the wider world, and enhance the commitment to social responsibility and 'looking after each other 'which underpins the values of People and Gardens.
The cost for 10 people is approximately £18,000. This covers flights, accommodation, food, hire of mini bus and driver, plus internal UK. travel and accommodation on rout.
We need to still raise £8,000.
We will be having fundraising events locally to make this trip a reality. It will be hard work but a once in a lifetime experience fr some of those who we support.
Please help if you can.
