The Y.E.S. project - empowering teenagers at Lavender Hill High School, Cape Flats, Cape Town to say NO to gangland challenges
At Lavender Hill High School we believe that each child is ENTITLED to a chance in life. If their environment is jeopardising those chances then lets provide chances in a positive, nurturing school environment.
The core element of Y.E.S is to provide an exciting programme of extra-curricular sporting, cultural and craft/skills development activities. Through several strong partnerships, the school has recently acquired two sports fields, a new library and 2 computer labs.
For the Y.E.S programme to have meaningful impact in young people’s lives far into the future, we must maintain and continue development.
So – at this “giving-time” of December 2010 –our focus is to create a strong sustainability fund. For this we have launched the YES LEASE
Please support an innovative way of “giving kids a new lease on life” by notionally or “pretend” leasing of a small block of playing fields as a once-off Christmas gift or a gift spread over a year for as little as R100 per month. (Read more on Projects page)
