5th MISSING CHILDREN WALK

SUNDAY 30 MAY 2021

Emkhathini Park, Andrew Mapheto drive. Tembisa

 

 

Missing children`s awareness walk is the 5th annual awareness campaign to create public awareness about misisng children, it is also a fundraising event to raise funds for preventing misising children cases, educating the public about the issue of missing children and to research factors leaing children  to go missing.

­

HISTORY OF THE EVENT 

This event started in 2016 at Bojelong Primary school where more than 1100 school children participated, the initial plan was to educate school children about the issue of missing children and sharing safety tips with children.

 

We realized that it is not only children that are affected by this challenge but everybody.

 

Parents whose children are missing as we speak are living in tears, the siblings of the missing children,  friends of missing children,  teachers of missing children ,  neighbors of missing children and  the list goes on and on.

 

A permanent and bigger venue was needed and Emkhathini Park (opposite Tembisa Fire Station) near Rabasotho Police station and Limindlela station was chosen as the ideal venue. It is at the centre of the Tembisa area and it will be accessible easier by everyone who is interested to get involved.

 

Missing Children’s Awareness Walk is the only Event in the country that gives ADULTS & CHILDREN platform to take part in creating awareness about the issue around missing children.

 

This is where people with different backgrounds but with one vision to keep children of South Africa safe meet. They all agree that children must be protected and not be hurt; we all agree that if a child next door is missing tomorrow it may be my child or yours.
