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.

The event will take place Date: 24 September 2014    Time: 8:00    Venue: Walter Sisulu Centre Noordgesig with the march starting at 8:30 and we expect to be finish at 11:30 am, returning back to the centre, where we will be addressed by various speakers and enjoy some refreshments.

For your further information, we list the following


  • To create an awareness within the community about the importance of protecting our children

  • To create an awareness to our kids as to what the dangers are within the society

  • To know who to contact and what to do in case of an emergency
