Legion Events NPO was founded in 2019 July. It is established and dedicated in working with vulnerable children and young adults in disadvantaged communities to develop their up bring. We believe in the necessity of transformation from early childhood in order to prevent and decrease poverty. Therefore through our implemented services we strive to make a difference daily.

We work together with other organization serving the purpose of humanity and kindness. Helping our children in ways we can such as providing warm meals, basic essentials and educational skills. We also implement the use of arts and culture to provide the children with after school activities.

Back To School Projects

While we are battling the monster that is Coronavirus pandemic, we must all be conscious about the uncertainties that are awaiting learners in the 2021 academic year. The effects of this pandemic would surely have a firm grip on children from underprivileged backgrounds, especially in terms of basic school essentials.

Most of these children rely on government social grants for survival. At this point in time, some of them their parents got retrenched due to all the mayhem created by the virus, resulting in loss of income. Some can’t even afford to attend school at all due to the financial challenges faced by their families.

With this initiative, we are aiming to help keep the disadvantaged children in school despite the odds being stacked against them. The provision of necessary school supplies to most of these children will surely go a long way in keeping them in school. This initiative will play a great role between the community and learners in terms of building each other. In this regard, we are building a chain block by connecting the community with the child’s education in making them aware of the challenges they are facing and how they can help each other. Our mission is to be able to give new school uniforms and stationery to the needy kids that we would have identified through this Initiative, which we are planning to run twice a year.

Not only are w focusing in schooling resources but we work together with other organization serving the purpose of humanity and kindness. Helping our children in ways we can such as providing warm meals, basic essentials and educational skills. We also implement the use of arts and culture to provide the children with after school activities.

The following Campaigns runs all year around to make sure these children are well cared for:
