TROYEVILLE PARTY ON TURF

NMDAYChildren

PLEASE COME TO THE PARTY EVERYONE!

MAKE EVERYDAY A MANDELA DAY

AAW! are joining a motley and enthusiastic collective of volunteers to organise the

4th Annual Kids Party for Mr Mandela,hosted annually by the Kanala Initiative. Please help us and

the sponsors who are already on board –  Matrix, Nando’s and the City of Johannesburg -

to make this good mischief happen in style.


Every year since 2009, the Kanala Initiative, a network of volunteers led by Temma Dean

(local Beryl Court Heroine), organise a big party for orphans and under privileged children (under 13)

for Mr Mandela’s birthday. Since 2009, the party has been hosted in Kliptown, Soweto - and children

from nearby Eldorado Park and the inner city’s Troyeville district have been brought there for the fun.  

 

For the first time, in 2012, the party will bring children from Eldorado Park, Kliptown, Soweto,

Hillbrowand Midvaal to the inner city suburb so that 1200 kids can have the times of their lives

for a day in David Webster Park in Troyeville. The date for this year’s big event is

Sunday 22 July 2012.

 

The children are set to have the time of their lives. Some of them have never left Eldorado or Soweto before

- and now they’re going to a big park in town - for a feast, give-aways, including t-shirts and bags with

reading books and surprises. There will be music, song and dance and a grand parade in which the

children will participate with their own marching band and majorettes. Many local Troyeville artists,

the neighbourhood famous for its arts - are volunteering to perform and there will be a grand focus on

Mr Nelson Mandela, what he means to us … and how we can emulate his example.
