REF: 173-358 NPO
Eden Judo Development is a registered NPO with ONE purpose, to offer all aspects of Judo to underprivileged children and farming communities.
The Herold Development Project was initiated by a farmer in the Herold area which started with a farm school, Herold Laerskool.
This project grew to the neighboring school, Franken Primary School, with a staggering amount of 65 kids from the farming community in Herold doing Judo. Sensei Lilian travels to Herold once a week from George to teach.
Our aim in the near future, and with the help of sponsors, is to build a dojo which will be the home of Judo in Herold. The children, aged 6 – 15 currently train in three groups according to age on 5m2 mats 20mm thick, and we aim to create a proper dojo with proper equipment to help these kids reach their full potential in all aspects of Judo.
The project has been a tremendous success and we will have another program starting in the George area in the beginning of 2017.
