South Beach Stoke seeks to make a difference in the lives of the street kids and the lost in Durban, South Africa. They have been working in Durban for the last four years.
Every Saturday morning, they meet on South Beach, regardless of weather conditions. Before any activities, they share a Bible lesson, eat together, and one of the leaders will bring a "Green Message", a lesson on the impact of pollution on the environment and fun-facts about sea life. As a way to put into action what they are learning, they regularly run beach cleanups to help the anti-litter initiative.
The hope is to take the crew surfing every Saturday but even when conditions are not right, they play soccer, touch-rugby, and ride skateboards with the kids.
There is a core group of kids who have been engaged from the beginning and some that travel 80 km from Ballito to join us each week. It is South Beach Stoke’s goal to walk alongside these young people until they are successful and independent.
