The Seven Passes Initiative is a community-based organisation in the southern Cape, that operates in the Hoekwil area incorporating the township of Touwsranten and the surrounding farming district. The Initiative serves both the community of Touwsranten and children of farm workers in the adjacent farming district. The Initiative has been in existence since January 2008.
The objective of the Initiative is to facilitate and encourage positive youth development through after-school care, in particular through our homework clubs and other after school activities. In doing so the aim is both to reduce youth involvement in crime and develop a generation of children who can realise their future goals.
