After the second youth fatality in just under a week, founder of the Kidsplay Foundation states that non-profit organizations are not able to gain a large reach because they are in need of more funding and awareness of the parents.
Kal Dosanjh the founder and president of the Kidsplay Foundation emphasize that the only way foundations like his survive is because of the generosity of the community. Dosanjh explains that out of every ten kids the association comes across at least two will slip through. However, with the kids they reach and impact the lack of funding from the government will always play a part.
Dosanjh shares that apart from the lack of funding it takes more than just these associations to protect the youth from becoming involved in gang activities. He explains that the protection starts with the knowledge of the parents. Dosanjh says that until parents accept and become aware of what their kids are doing no association will work.
