Jumprope Team Gives Stunning Performance at a Bus

The school holidays are characterized with a bustle of activity and this one was no different. The children played carelessly and ran about chasing each other like the wind, portraying a sense of idleness.

Unknown unto the public, the ‘Paka Skippers’, the CFK jump rope team, arrived at the open-air bus stage and staged a stunning performance. The event captured the interest of the children and youth, who gazed in total amazement.

The jump rope skippers have continued to use the sport as a tool for behavior change and talent nurturing and following their performance, numerous other youth sought to join the team. Your kind support has so far assisted the Paka Skippers procure uniform and shoes and we seek further support in growing the number of skippers.
