Jerry the Giraffe training a success

Fikelela AIDS Project conducted a survey to find out who woudl like to be trained to run Gerry the Giraffe child awareness programme. 

Currently 27 churches are running the programme with 53 teachers trained

The response was very positive with teachers mentioning that children are opening up to them in this safe space. Children are excited to meet Gerry each week and to learn about feelings, safe secrets and the parts of the body which are special and that no one should touch. This is a fun way to learn important life skills

So the team are busy preparing for hte next workshop, with the resource packs!

Capetown sadly has very high levels of child abuse and the Sunday School class offers a save place to teach the children the skills they need to protect themselves.

A new school year at Fikelela

December is a time for festivities fun and laughter. We were blessed with many visitors and even Santa came on a special day to visit the children. The centre has been painted by volunteers and looks bright and cheerful

 

We started the new year with great excitement.. 15 children have started a new grade, ten children are going to preschool and the others stay at home and learn to become toddlers!

Fikelela is a place of love and laughter, we are also appreciattive of our volunteers who come and assist the older chidlren with special skills and with their homework.

Jerry Giraffe - Sunday School teachers

The training became available for our parishes since 2012 to date we have had 27 churches and 62 Sunday school teachers trained to run the programme in their Sunday school classes. We have only had positive responses from teachers that implemented the programme.

The resource packs that they receive when completing the training has helped teachers tremendously – the kids respond very well to visual teaching.

They cannot wait for Sunday school because someone is going to get a chance to put the leave on the Tree, “Jerry is our best friend I wish I can have a Jerry at home.”

The programme is implemented at most of our parishes as part of the Sunday School year planner.

Fikelela would like to host another training session in 2015 as we already had some request from parishes showing their interest and wanting to send more teachers to benefit from the training.

We appreciate your generous support.
