C@P Education is a project aimed at enabling learners from different backgrounds and those living in poverty to have the necessary tools to do their school work efficiently. Many families are living in extreme poverty and can’t provide stationery to their children, and the schools usually have limited resources. By supplying thousands of children each with their own stationery pack not only give them the opportunity to enhance their learning experience, but also motivate them to work harder for success. The stationery packs usually include a pencil case (branding is optional), pen, pencil, ruler, sharpener, scissors, eraser, glue, colouring pencils and an examination pad. Depending on the need and the age group, there can be additional stationery included in these packs. As part of C@P Education, we provide pre-selected children with bursaries where possible. Children with such a drive to succeed in life deserve a fair chance of reaching their goals.
C@P Sport is developed to contribute to healthy living and an active lifestyle for children as they are growing up. We believe an active child is a healthy child, and a healthy child can perform to the best of their abilities in life. C@P Sport also promote sport amongst children for the reason that it can provide opportunities to further their education and career through sport bursaries in schools and universities. C@P Sport activities keep kids off the streets and help them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. C@P Sport distributes soccer balls, netball balls and any other sport equipment to children in previously disadvantaged areas and to children living in extreme poverty. C@P Sport also arranges coaching clinics in areas where it usually wouldn’t have taken place. Sport equipment can be donated directly to C@P or a monetary contribution can be made towards this project.
There are many families and specifically children who can’t afford nutritional food. Therefore, C@P Food supplies nutritional food to those in need, especially children who are still developing and growing. These children can’t develop without all the necessary nutrients. Any food donations are welcome – preferably non-perishable food. Another focus area of C@P Food is providing basic necessities to families in need, this include blankets, beanies, scarves, clothes, toiletries and water purifiers. These are basic things we all have and take for granted, it is a reality that there are thousands of people trying to survive without these “basic things”.
C@P Health in partnership with CANSA (Cancer Association of South Africa) joined hands to help children with cancer and children affected by cancer. C@P Health is focused on creating awareness about cancer, cancer prevention, and supporting cancer survivors – Little Warriors At Play! C@P Health’s activities include donating prosthetics to these affected children whose families are not in a position to afford it. Other activities include providing mosquito nets to needy families in malaria affected areas, encouraging people in cholera affected areas to be aware of the risks and dangers, and to drink and use clean water at all times. This is where C@P Health and C@P Food work together by providing water purifiers in those areas. C@P Health would also like to increase our involvement in HIV and AIDS prevention and awareness.
C@P Ministries focusses on spreading the Word of God. God is the foundation of every life, career, and success achieved. Therefore C@P Ministries is a crucial part of the existence of C@P and the role we play in the world. C@P Ministries activities include providing AudioBibles to illiterate communities in their own languages, making it easier for them to hear and spread the Gospel. The AudioBibles are charged through a built-in solar panel, and can be ordered in almost any African language. Each Audio-bible is R250 (about $25) but can reach an estimated target group of about 50 people, as families in communities share this amongst each other. C@P Ministries also distribute children’s Bibles in various languages, as well as conventional Bibles where needed. These bibles can be bought by individuals or churches and sponsored to C@P or donations can be made to C@P for this purpose.
C@P International is where all the projects come together (C@P Sport, C@P Education, C@P Food, C@P Health, and C@P Ministries) to help make a difference worldwide. C@P is based in South Africa, but we know that the basic problems experienced in South Africa are also a reality in other countries, especially in Africa. Various countries have been visited by our volunteers, and we will continue on our journey to help those in need anywhere in the world.
