affection and skills of people other than the parents is profound and
an important part of a healthy childhood (sadly missing in many a

where the children and youth will be invited to participate in the
decision making process affecting their communal spaces.

supporting Kanjini financially and by helping with planning,
advertising and research and by contributing in meetings. Members
also contribute to and participate in a variety of outside
activities, organisations and leisure activities.
