  • Personlig hygiejne
  • Finde deres talenter og fremme deres potentiale.
  • Grundlæggende landbrugsfærdigheder

Vi opfordrer dem også til at interagere sammen under gruppeaktiviteter for at lære nye ting og hvordan de interagere med andre. Gruppens aktiviteter inkluderer:
  • Måltider - vi leverer et måltid og en drink en gang om ugen til børnene og tre gange om ugen under skole ferier.
  • Tegning - vi leverer bøger, farver, farveblyant osv.
  • Udflugter og ture - vi arrangerer udflugter og besøg forskellige steder. Vi viser og fortæller dem om naturen for at lære dem at værdsætte og passe på deres natur.

SOMO Initiative

Somo er et swahili-ord, der betyder et studieemne. I dette program tilstræber vi at hjælpe skolegående børn i alderen 6 - 19 år med skoleuniformer, for at holde dem i skole. Organisation donere også gratis som bøger, linealer, viskelæder, tasker, blyanter, farveblyanter og kuglepenne, da de fleste forældre ikke har råd til at købe disse ting til deres børn. Derudover yder vi også økonomisk bistand til børn, hvis forældre ikke har råd til at betale skolepenge, så deres børn kan komme i skole. Dette program inkluderer også børn og unge, der af forskellige grunde er gået ud af skolen, i håb om at få dem tilbage til skolen og færdiggøre deres uddannelse.

Interact with me

This is an advocacy and empowerment program for the community. It has different components which include advocacy, sensitization, mentorship, and training on the following broad areas;

  • HIV/AIDS – targets youth and young adults
  • Reproductive Health – for young adults
  • Gender-Based Violence – for the youth and young adults
  • Alcoholism and drugs abuse – for the whole community
  • Mentorship of the youth

Our staff members play the key role of community mobilization, sensitization, and training on these topics throughout the calendar year.

Sanitary Towels Distribution

Since the residents of Soweto slum are low income earners, they cannot afford to buy sanitary towels for their adolescent daughters every month, and as a result, these girls miss out of class during their menstrual flow hence lagging behind in class for 3-4 days every month.

In order to keep the girls in school, as an organization we came up with a program of providing sanitary towels from well-wishers which we distribute to the school going girls.

With time we realized that the young women not necessarily school going were also in need of these sanitary towels and we also allowed them into the program. The sanitary towels are distributed once every month.

Nishike Mkoni

Nishike Mkoni is a Swahili word meaning Hold My Hand. This is a program of empowering young adults to be self-reliant economically. We offer courses in hairdressing, computer lessons, and tailoring.

After successful completion of the course, the students can access a soft loan of K Shs20,000 (approximately $ 200) for the startup of an income-generating project. The loan has a grace period of two months, an interest of 1% for a term of 2 years.
