SURREY â” KidsPlay Foundationâs summer camps brought out a load of youngsters last weekend in a super successful camps attended by more than 300 participants in Surrey and Abbotsford. These camps have been running all summer long.
âAn ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Investing in youth today, means a tremendous future return on investment by creating well adjusted productive adults that give back to society. At KidsPlay Foundation, we believe that it takes a village to raise a child- we are that village,â said Kal Dosanjh, Founder of KidsPlay and active law enforcement officer.
There is an over representation of South Asian youth involved in drugs, gangs and crime. Much of this can be attributed to a loss of culture, language and self respect, which gradually erodes identity. Through free programs, not only kids are provided with a positive outlet which time and time again has proven to provide youth an outlet away from engaging in a criminal lifestyle, but also something for these children to do during this pandemic.
âThe public demand for our programs continues to grow exponentially. We are grateful to our sponsors, volunteers, and the entire community for bestowing us with this level of faith and trust, and allowing us the opportunity to guide their children onto a bright future,â said KidsPlay Team.
KidsPlay Foundation runs weekly Mentorship and Counselling programs for youth and families. Along with that, their newest initiative â” KidsPlay Community Patrol Program â” has been a super success.
