Hello to all of you out there!
I am Leonie, 18 years old and decided to go back to South Africa.
Yes, you got that right. I already spent time from November 2019 until March 2020 in Cape Town, volunteering for Zip Zap Circus School. I could see the amazing work they are doing each day and was able to support them wherever I could. (I also have a blog if you want to read more: www.meinjahrinza.jimdofree.com)
Zip Zap as a social circus school stands up for children and young adolescens of all colour, social backgrounds and life experiences to give them the opportunity of free circus training. The participants learn that they are all the same in things of importance and that they can achieve a lot by working together. At the same time, they are learning lessons for life such as team work, punctuality, responsibility and trust.
SAGE-Net makes it possible for me to go back. In order to support more projects in South Africa by sending volunteers, they rely on donations to keep their good work going. These donations also make it possible for me to make my dream of going back come true.
I would be super happy and thankful for every support from your side.
