2017-2018 Puddles Jumpers wins $100,000

Puddle Jumpers will use their grant to enable more children at risk to develop confidence and skills by attending Puddle Jumpers Camps that can be expanded to reduce the waiting list. Additionally, they plan to purchase a 12 seater bus to enhance access to their program. The camps are conducted for children who are disadvantaged, most of the children do not reside with their birth parents.  The camps enable siblings to come to camp together, thus providing another avenue for sibling access in a relaxed environment.  Activities on camp include further mentoring for children and support for their carers who often are grandparents.  Click here to see a great video that Puddle Jumpers put together after their exciting win.  Read more about Puddle Jumpers.
