A local sporting organisation has established a psycho-social sport and play program to offer psychosocial support to children in foster homes.
The festival will see the children from 12 homes playing soccer, netball, volleyball, athletics (track), chess and fun activities for the younger children like sogby, croccer, extreme sport, sack races, obstacle challenges and corporate fun races where representatives of the adopting company can also take part.
It will also be an opportunity for the children to interact with the corporates especially the older children who will benefit from an understanding of career choices available to them.
“An ideal childhood for any child is to grow up under the love, care and guidance of parents but various factors have seen an increasing number of Zimbabwe children being placed in children’s homes, ‘’ said Kutting Edge director Maimba Mapuranga.
