New Churches gain skills to protect their kids

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!

Education - the Key to the Future!

At Fikelela we are passionately committed to education as a key to the Children's future. Often children come to us who have been neglected or moved from carer to carer and their education has suffered tremendously. Simple things like someone teaching you to hold a crayon and colour in have been developmental steps our kids have missed out on.

So we put a lot of effort into our after school programme and are blessed with wonderful volunteers who assist.

We started last year with many kids struggling with thier maths but saw great improvement by the end of the year as this became a focus for the after school support.

We were delighted with the childrens' report cards at the end of the year and to see the improvements educationally.

We have even started a little stimulation and development group with our tinies (0-2 years).

Thankyou for helping us to help our kids acheive a better future through love, education and hope!

Jerry Giraffe grows and grows!

Fikelela Aids Project is rolling out the Sunday School programme - Jerry Giraffe  to new churches and Sunday School teachers.


teachers from five churches attended a training hosted by Think Twice where they learned to run this ten session programme in their own communities. The programme helps them to talk about issues of body, emotions, safety, hiv stigma and other important concepts. The training is done in a fun way with Jerry Giraffe as the teacher!

Some comments from the teachers are "This is a great programme which teaches the little ones to respect their own bodies, to be accepting of all people living with HIV. They also learn about self respect and sharing of feeligns and emotions."


"jerry the talking Giraffe shares stories in a safe non threatening way which the children love!"

""I cant wait to incorporate this fun materials into my Sunday School teaching"

 " I like that each of the lessons is linked with a Bible story so I can incorporate it in my class teaching"

These teachers will go on to create a safe space for their kids to share what is going on in their lives....
