Children's Play Park, Appel Park, Krugersdorp
Community Outreach Programme: Play Park
I am Rev. Jannie Pelser and I have been a resident and minister in Mogale City for more than 30 years. In 2014 I established a non-profit organisation, The Jesus Project / FutureWindow /ToekomsVenster that runs various community outreach programmes. We have embarked on a project to establish a play park for the children of Appel Park. Life is extremely challenging in this poverty-ridden neighbourhood. Our concern is the children of this area. How can we bring them joy and, to some extent, return their childhood to them? Nobody deserves misery, children least of all. Kids need open spaces where they can play and relax, where they can forget momentarily the desolation and anxiety they probably experience on a daily basis, a safe place where they can be free to be kids again. Please help us to install cricket nets, a skate ramp and an obstruction course in time for the December school holidays. Let us give these children the joy and pleasure in life any child deserves, but above all hope!
