Delivering our mission
Our work overseas
From our base in Bostwana and our Head Office in the UK, we help local partners deliver child friendly programmes in developing communities.
We equip, enable and inspire local volunteers to bring learning to life and create environments where children can be active, have fun and learn together.
Drawing on nearly 30 years of experience, we have developed a unique resource called the Base Pack and accompanying training to empower and equip local leaders to change lives through sport.
Hundreds of community volunteers and local partners are working with the Base Pack in developing communities. Through our work we’ve been able to partner with community organisations, NGOs and charities including Sentebale Botswana, Swaziland Action Against Abuse and Stepping Stone International.
Each year we provide hundreds of subsidised and fully funded places at our camps through our Supporting Families Programme. Our aim is to provide children from a range of difficult or disadvantaged family circumstances an amazing experience on camp. Last year we helped over 200 children get active and have fun on camp, providing families with much needed respite.
“Georgia was one of five children living with her mother, a single parent who was sadly diagnosed with terminal cancer. To offer her and her siblings some respite, in 2009 they were given the opportunity to attend Kings Camps through the Supporting Families programme and the experience transformed their summer holidays.
Their experience camp boosted their self esteem, improved their confidence and offered respite from their worries and stressful life. Their Mum was also able to relax knowing her children were well cared for during the summer holidays.
Sadly their mother passed away and the family are now being cared for by the oldest sibling, Amy aged 22. Through the Supporting Families programme, Georgia and her family continue to return to Kings Camps to catch up with their friends, and give their elder sister the break she deserves.
