Extra Mural Activities

Twelve of our Khayelitsha teens recently started taking part in a surfing program with Waves for Change, an NPO focused on providing therapy through surfing and life skills activities. These are weekly sessions where young people from volatile backgrounds develop skills to regulate behaviour, build healing relationships, cope with stress and make positive life-choices.

Only with the support from our donors, and by partnering with like-minded organisations such as Waves for Change, are we able to offer all our Home from Home children an extra mural activity suited to their interests and personalities. Taking part in activities outside of the home and school encourages each child to develop their individuality and discover what it is they enjoy and are good at, building confidence and raising self-esteem.
