Fikelela Aids Project was afforded the opportunity to host a winter holiday club by the Western Cape Department of Community Safety.
This is the first time the organisation has been such an opportunity.

“Our aim was to teach life skills such as Jerry Giraffe, Survivor Africa and Agent of Changes,” says Vivian Miller from Fikelela Aids Project.

Five communities, including Gugulethu, Manenberg, Steenberg, Heideveld and Bonteheuwel, were earmarked by the Department of Community Safety.

Each site had a maximum of 35 children, but children came from all over, which raised the total to 70 and up to around 120 children at certain sites.

“We gave them meals for the day and had numerous activities every day. We had the following stakeholders on board: Anglican Environmental Department, Superbook, the police and fire brigade. They introduced awareness topics that added to the wellbeing and safety of our children. We are thankful to the Anglican churches for opening their doors to host the holiday club, the priests, members of the parish and community members who volunteered and gave of their time and talents to sow a positive seed in the children’s lives,” adds Miller.

She adds that the organisation is looking forward to working with more partners to keep children busy during future school holidays.V For more information call 021 469 3789.
