Counselling

Counselling

Counselling is available to all the children in our mentorship programme. If children are misbehaving or parents notice a change in attitude and character they ask us for help with counselling their kids. Children whose families have lost loved ones or have been traumatized by violence or injured by gangsterism are also counselled, either individually or as a family.


Career Guidance

Career Guidance

Two of the boys currently in grade 11 have been helped by our career guidance consultants to make decisions about their career choices and have been placed in job shadowing during the June school holidays. They have been assisted in getting their identity cards and have opened bank accounts in their names. They will be making applications to education institutions and will be assisted by our consultants to apply for bursaries in January 2018 (matric year). They currently work in our holiday programme earning stipends and assisting the City of Cape Town to keep children off the streets during the school holidays.


Academic Support

Academic Support

Academic support is offered to the children in our mentorship programme. Any child struggling academically in any subject can attend afternoon classes for help.


Holiday Programme

Holiday Programme

There are between 100 to 200 children attending this holiday programme between the ages of 2 to 18 years old. This is a City of Cape Town initiative which we assist with. Our volunteers get paid a stipend to entertain these children. They play games which is especially written up by our Occupational Therapist. These games are not only fun but also teaches the children valuable life skills like leadership skills, building of self esteem, learning to share, follow instructions, increasing memory capacity, increase fine and gross motor skills and increase listening skills.
