Our Christmas Holiday Program was a fun filled 2 weeks with lots of beautiful, creative children attending the groups in Masakhane and Stanford.
This year we ran 4 holiday programs in the Easter, june/july, October and the Christmas holiday. We ran groups in Stanford as well as Masakhane and had good numbers of children attending the programs. The Christmas holiday in Masakhane being our biggest group with over 50 children each day.
We are trying to keep the groups at 20 at a time, as this is a number that is manageable for our facilitators but on the other hand we don’t turn keen creative children away when they arrive at the workshops with bright eyes and busy hands to create something beautiful. The holiday program was well supported by our local community and we want to say thank you to everyone involved.
The holidays are a time when children, especially in marginalized communities, are vulnerable and therefore this is a program that is close to our heart. As space is always an issue for us and we are operating in halls, churches and sometimes even in open spaces. We want to thank Die Bron Primary for letting us use their hall in the October holidays.
