YES :thumbs_up: :D :clap:

I think
disadvantaged communities
means exactly that.
Communities deprived of basic necessities/advantages.
That would include all kids falling into this category.

Thank you Matthys. As long as it include all facets of society, I am happy. The word " previously disadvantaged" throws one's mind in a certain direction, and perhaps we should create another term for people/kids that don't have the opportunities to visit our great parks and learn about nature.

I am glad that you are happy about this project, Rooies.
Kids are so precious and I think this is a wonderful project :D .
No mind throwing here. Only disadvantaged communities mentioned in Sparks' opening post.

Thank you everyone for your commitment!! :dance: :clap:

Micetta, we are now trying to raise funds to make it possible. Without money there ain't much to plan but we'll definitely go and bring back a report and pics when this is underway. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
Any reason to visit Marakele is a good reason! :dance:

Oops...sorry, sorry.... bad management on my part. :slap:
Here is the correct link: Givengain
Please use "Taking kids to Marakele" and your name as reference. I'll find it. :)
