The KidSafe Project Society provides nurturing, safe havens for at-risk inner-city elementary school students when schools are traditionally closed in Vancouver's East side. School is where children learn, play, eat, make friends, discover role models, develop life-long skills and find help in a crisis.
KidSafe keeps schools open after hours and during Winter, Spring and Summer breaks for at-risk elementary students from the ages of 5 to 13.
Providing safety, healthy meals, learning and recreation activities in a caring, fun environment, the objective is to ensure these vulnerable children have the opportunity to shine.
Serving nearly 400 children, the project runs free of charge thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses, governments and organizations that want to make an impact within their community.
One wonderfully successful fundraising event, in addition to many others including selling greeting cards featuring the artwork of KidSafe kids, is an annual golf tournament held at University Golf Course. It is being held again this August and hopes are it will be fully subscribed as in past years.
