Five new churches have been trained to run the Jerry Giraffe Programme.Vivian Miller is the newly appointed prevention worker and he will be visiting the five churches with a 'roadshow' to help them as they present their first few sessions.The teachers are excited to be equipped with this wonderful fun programme and hope to make a difference in increasing the safety of thier children from Child abuse.
Vivian is excited about this programme and looking forward to empowering the Sunday School teachers. He is looking forward to visiting the churches, to see the situations of the various churches and help them to take on this programme in creative fun ways
We are excited to have completed the training of our senior staff who have graduated as fully trained child and youth care workers. They will be able to supervise , encourage and inspire the staff who are still doing their training.
This has improved the quality of care and stimulation given to the children at the centre. Although we are running at full capacity with not a bed open for more than a few days at a time, the staff, due to their training, are able to concentrate on what is really important to the children's quality of life.
We have also started a fun recreational programme once a week with the preschool children and school children which they are all loving
Five new churches were trained by Fikelela to implement the Jerry giraffe child abuse protection programme.
Eleven teachers were trained and very excited by the new materials.
They are all planning to start the programme just after Easter and were excitted to learn the songs and prepare the materials for their kids.
They had a chance to see all the ten lessons and to practice using the resources during the workshop. They were given a CD with materials and songs so they can practice at home.
The children enjloy learning during singing songs and the actions are great fun for them!
it is important to learn about emotions through games, and to learn which are the special parts of the body that noone is allowed to touch
Thankyou so much for your support for this important project!
