Breathing space for kids

Often little children’s need for entertainment are ignored or the little ones are left to their own devices.

But now a new organisation Imbewu Yobomi wants to bring this to an end.

Imbewu Yobomi chairman Mzwandile Lugogo said they observed this phenomenon and acting to curb it.

“We are organisation that that focuses on Early Childhood Education and we have observed that our communities take little care of children’s need for entertainment,” he said.

Lugogo said they use meditation and drumming as channels for children to find space to “reflect”.

“When they come out from the creches you find them playing meaningless games, some times dangerous one and now are using drumming for them to find calmness amidst the “noise of ekasi”.

Last week the group had a beach walk and found time to “talk to nature”

Lugogo said their target group was kids between 7 -14.
