RAD | Support the Rocklands Community

Calling all climbers – the Rocklands community needs our help!

Valentine’s Day may be over, but it’s still the month of love and there is a wonderful cause in need of our help… the Veldblommetjies Creche, established a few years back by the incredible Rocklands Association for Development (RAD)!

RAD was founded in 2017 with the goal of ensuring that the prolific tourism the Rocklands area experiences from climbers and other visitors benefits and enriches the local community and environment.

How? By getting climbers (particularly those who frequent Rocklands during bouldering season) involved in valuable projects that empower, uplift and support the people who call this beautiful area home.

One of these projects is the Veldblommetjies Creche, which offers essential early childhood schooling and aftercare services, better equipping the local children for their first years at primary school and making a substantial, tangible difference in their lives.

The growth and impact of this undertaking have been remarkable, but there is still a long way to go and a consistent supply of funding is needed to maintain the creche and continue this invaluable work. As such, RAD is reaching out to all of us in the climbing community who may be able to offer a helping hand in the form of a donation.
