Child Protection Awareness March in Noordgesig (Next to Orlando, Soweto).
Following the recent events of brutal violence, crime and senseless killing of children in South Africa, as well as around the world, and especially in our communities, the Noordgesig Youth Forum together with the Noordgesig Community Development Foundation has decided to embark on a campaign that will bring an awareness as to how important our children are to society and without them the heritage of this country will be lost in just a few generations down the line.
