Stories from the classroom: 2nd Quarter 2016

Life orientation, for all South African school learners, is the only platform from which learners can acquire life skills, democracy skills and vital knowledge about our diverse country and the world.* It’s a safe and engaging place where leaners can be taught how to make motivated life choices.

Which is why the Domino Foundation has a whole programme dedicated to educating learners about themselves, their identity and their role in greater society. For the past few years the programme has worked into three schools in Amaoti and helped hundreds of learners navigate these tricky issues. At the recent AGM it became clear that these life skills lessons were making a difference in individuals lives – they were equipping learners with knowledge about themselves and empowering them with the skills to lead a successful life.

They say you have to see it to believe, well here is a video of some of our learners from the Life Skills Programme sharing their views on how the programme has changed their lives.

Winter Warmth Comes To Amaoti

Rotaract Members & Children at Zwakele School with new blankets

“As Rotaract Club of Durban we have worked closely with the Winter Warmth project run by ECR, Hub and Rotary in previous years. So when applications were due for this year’s allocation of blankets – we did not hesitate to apply. We were allocated 400 blankets of which we have used as numerous charities. We believe in truly searching for those who are in dire situations.”

This is when the Rotaract Club of Durban decided to team up with Durban north based NPO, Indlela. Through the Learning For Life programme, a HIV/AIDS prevention programme, a number of Learners have been identified as OVC (Orphaned and Vulnerable Children). Being orphaned and vulnerable, these children either have no parents, are living in child headed households or with gogo’s or neighbours. Being a cold winter, Indlela and The Rotaract Club of Durban, stepped in to assist these children in need, distributing blankets to the Children at Zwakele Primary, in Amaoti.
