Living Hope SD is hosting the Keep Hope Alive Concert at SOS Village in Mbabane, Swaziland on the 22nd of December 2012, here is the theme and concept..
On the day (22nd) friends and partners of Living Hope will get the opportunity to interact with the kids and the other attendants, play games with them, chat, and also help make the event a success and effective...there will also be motivational speakers, great music and refreshments...and of-course beautiful people . So basically the idea is that Living Hope hopes to impact with hope, inspiration, motivation and tones of fun.
The situation on the ground:
The SOS village in Mbabane is home to around 130 kids, and of those about 40% of them really have literally nobody. So while the family members come get the other kids to spend the Christmas with them these kids which are around 60 kids, remain at the village with nobody to celebrate with, and this can be very damaging psychologically, especially to kids. The SOS village staff do try their utmost best to make the kids as comfortable, loved and safe as best they could, but they also have their own families to take care of...and the don't get to do as much as they would like due to financial limitations. However meeting new people, to inspire, motivate and have fun with the kids when they feeling low would really be a great gift for them, and you.
