FAREWELL

Manda:

 

Manda bid us farewell as her visit came to an end. We really appreciate the time she set aside to be with us. May God Bless you.

 

 

Kim and Faustine:

It’s always sad to say good bye. Kim and Faustine where here for a six weeks and it felt so short. They decided to hold a farewell dinner which was fully packed with laughter, songs and good wish messages. Thank you guys for volunteering at Kwathu and we pray that the good Lord continues touching your souls and that you can also be a blessing to others.

Community Development:

Kwathu FH Community School:

The school had a team of visitors from an organisation called Pop Green who cam to educate the children on the need to conserve and save plants. The team and the children plated different trees and each team of pupils were assigned with a plant to take care of until it is fully grow. The pupils were very excited and enjoyed the activity.

TBRI Training

Members of staff from Kwathu Children’s Home and Kwathu Free Haven Community School had a ‘Trust Based Relational Intervention’ (TBRI) training with one of our volunteer Manda facilitating the whole training. The training highlighted a few issues related to child care e.g How to deal with trauma, How to build trust with children, Deep Breathing Activities etc…It was a very educative training and it pointed out best ways to take care of children.
Thank You Manda for the training!!!!🤗🤗😊

Thank God for the continuous provision of meals for the feeding program.
