Children spent time giving back to the marine community with a beach clean-up at Swartklip beach recently.

The event held on Saturday 18 January marked the start of the We Desire To Inspire (WDTI) foundation’s Kids Club environmental project.

“We adopted the Swartklip beach where we spent two hours cleaning. This will happen every last Saturday of the month,” says WDTI Foundation founder, Edries Davids.

“We went to the beach with the kids over the Christmas holidays and noticed how dirty our beaches are, and we want to teach them by cleaning the beach you contribute to looking after the marine life.”

A total of 35 children attended the event.

The foundation is a registered non-profit company.

The kids club was started to keep children occupied and away from negative influences. The club has around 70 children who attend weekly events and initiatives.

Davids says they are calling on sponsors to assist them in making this possible.

“We are looking for sponsors for black bags and two taxis to take the children to and from the beach for the clean-ups,” says Davids.

  • Anyone who would like to donate or sponsor can call or message Davids on 078 048 3940.
