”Blitz makes a difference”

My name is Itumeleng Kau and I live in Naledi ext 2 (Rdp). I live with my Mom, brother and my two daughters.
I think Blitz is a good thing for the kids because it keeps kids away from drugs, alcohol, teenage pregnancy ,crime and other challenges that youth face.
Since I'm a parent my self and have grown up in Soweto , I have a clear picture of how the youth of my community live, so Blitz makes a difference by teaching them different sports and also the responsibility towards their health.

What motivated me to be part of Blitz is that I want to make a difference in my community. Been part of the Blitz family exposed me to other things like sport and women empowerment. Working the mental challenged people is fun yet sometimes challenging and you can also be attached to them.
I love what we do at Blitz even thou I would not be there all the time. When ever I'm free I will dedicate my time there (Blitz).

Cold winter in Soweto

Winter is still on and this week we have -1 and -4.
But that does not keep the kids away from the school holiday program that we (Blitz) do with the Hub (Gauteng provincial government) in partnership.
We had +/- 40 kids from around Moletsane where our office is based. Due to this cold we don't have a stable number, sometimes we will have 12-15 but that does not let us down.
Since its cold we couldn't have the Grunden Bois of Soweto because there were on winter recess. Our training with them (Grundens) will resume on the last week of August.
