In 2017, SurviveAlive linked with Themba Community Church in South Africa and raised funds towards providing a Literacy Centre and Study hub for disadvantaged children. This project has been a great success and now, as we see the devastating impact coronavirus measures have had on families who were already struggling to survive, we have decided once again to support the work of Themba Church as they provide food aid and other practical support to the people of the Middelrus valley.
Families like the Majola sisters and their children have many mouths to feed. The small income they had coming in from one sister working on clearing dirt from the side of roads has stopped and they now rely on the weekly food donations from the church. Themba works tirelessly at sourcing and distributing this aid to help families across the valley in the battle against hunger and malnutrition and is extremely grateful for all support given.
SurviveAlive youthworks aims to promote spiritual, physical and emotional well-being through its summer camps and events. As part of this, we help to develop team-work and leadership skills amongst our young people.
If you are aged 17 or over, you may want to come to the camp as a Young Leader. This role gives you the opportunity to take on more responsibility. You will be part of the team that runs the camp, whilst still remaining a camper. Young Leaders help out around the site and have additional roles and responsibilities within the areas of catering, Audio/Video operation, sport leadership, worship leading, camper encouragement and Small Group leadership.
No two Young Leaders are the same, each will bring a different set of skills and a fresh personality, and will work alongside the other leaders to make sure the camp runs smoothly.
Sadly, Covid-19 restrictions mean that SurviveAlive Adventure Camp 2020 is not possible. We still stand for physical and spiritual well-being and we are planning a 24hr Adventure on Friday 14th of August for young people. More info coming soon!
