City Kidz

The Afhco Group held its first ever CityKidz Fundraising Dinner on the 26 October 2010.

The development and upliftment of children is fundamental to the success of our country. Afhco, under the directorship of Renney and Wayne Plit, as part of its program to uplift the inner city and invest in our community established CityKidz Pre and Primary School in 2007.

Most children attending schools in the inner city are typically faced with schools in derelict high rise buildings with no ventilation, poor lighting, bad wiring, poor fire compliance, broken toilets, crowded classroom with a poor academic standard, to name but a few challenges.

CityKidz Pre and Primary School is different. The school provides an excellent education, healthy food, sunshine and hope for over 250 inner city children.
