The Kariega Project is pleased to announce yet another community service project that will not only benefit the greater Kenton area, but will also provide a great opportunity for members of Marselle, Ekuphumleni, and Klipfontein to earn Kariega Credits towards their community development goals. 

On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, 30 youths from the Marselle, Ekuphumleni, and Klipfontein community (10 from each community) will participate in an all day river clean-up along the Kariega river. The day will start with a lesson on the environment by the Sustainable Seas Trust; followed by a clean-up task under the guidance of Ndlambe conservationist, William Bode. The boys from Quest Africa will be joining the teams to help with safety along the river and supervise lunch duty. The day will be rounded off with beach activities, led by the team from the Sustainable Seas Trust. 

The three communities will earn 5 credits for every attending team member, including team leaders. So each community will earn roughly 50 Kariega Credits (worth R1000.00). The Quest Africa volunteers will also earn 5 credits each; with their Credits being divided equally among the respective communities to be spend towards their development projects.

Along with the 30 youths, the following organisations are participating: Kenton Rotary, Sustainable Seas Trust, Marselle Youth Empowerment Centre, Ekuphumleni Youth Centre, Quest Africa, Ndlambe conservation, ESG Harmony Park, and the Kariega Project. 

The Kariega Project extends its sincere gratitude to all the participating organizations for their support!
