To empower children through life skills education to actively participate in making decision with regard to the issues that are affecting them.
The programme is located at Addington Primary School where the influence created among the children has been phenomenal. Teachers and the administration of the school have been very supportive and very generous with their time in allowing us to conduct those life skills sessions within their own busy school schedule. Operating on Tuesday and Thursday the programme reaches about 500 learners and much change has been experienced both by the team and the learners.
A network is being forged, which will encourage close cooperation and partnership with Durban YMCA programs. Organizations in the network include the Department of Education, Soul Buddyz, Children’s Rights Centre and BBBSSA
