PROJECT L3, Live, Love and Learn, is an innovative fund-raising project that was launched by Child Welfare SA: KwaDukuza, in 2016. This project promotes child protection and encourages community participation in the fight against child abuse and raises funds for the society.The theme colour is green, which is the national theme colour for child protection and symbolises growth and development. According to senior social work manager Penny Dhaver, the project is commemorated every year on the Friday preceding Human Rights Day.“This year, the date has been identified as March 16.“As a society, we would like to raise as much awareness as possible about the seriousness of child abuse in our community. “In order to do so, we have planned a parade through the town of KwaDukuza. We are involving schools, business houses and various organisations from the surrounding areas. The theme for the day will be child protection and all participants will be encouraged to wear the Project L3 colour, green. We are expecting approximately 2 000 participants at the parade.”All participants will be required to wear a green T-shirt, preferably the Project L3 one.Schools are also encouraged to carry banners and posters and to be as creative as possible in furthering the message of child protection.“You could even identify a mascot to represent your school. Prizes will be awarded for the most unusual and creative ideas,” Dhaver said. The parade will commence and end at the park adjacent to the clinic in Theunissen Road.“We will proceed along Theunissen Road, turning right into Balcomb Street, left into Chief Albert Luthuli Street and at the traffic lights turn right into Hullett Street. We will then proceed along Hullett Street and turn left into Lindley Street, continue on King Shaka Street and then turn left into Gizenga Street, turn left into Balcomb Street and right again into Theunissen Road to end the parade at the park.“We will provide private security and 30 marshalls. L3 items will be on sale at the park. These items include T-shirts, wrist bands, caps badges, glasses and water bottles,” Dhaver said.For more information, phone K. Govender or P.
