We are very honoured that Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be attending our next Masi fundraising event on September 26th, 2009. Our goal is to raise the final $125,000 required to complete the construction of the Youth Centre. We hope you can join us for this last stretch and be part of Realizing the Dream.
The township of Masiphumelele, close to Cape Town has one of the highest AIDS rates affecting predominantly young women. 80% of these women will die by the age of 40, if nothing is done.
Our goal is to build a youth centre providing sport, recreation education, skills training and sexual health services for HIV affected and at risk youth in the township of Masiphumelele.
To meet this objective, we need to raise approximately 4.3 Million Rand (US$ 422,000).
