Congratulations to Thobeka and Busisiwe!
…and here is the lovely reading about the second area we have supported at Play on Wheels this year:1. Health and Well-being2. Staff training3. Facilitated into schoolNumber 1 we already told you about, and here follows the second. The third will follow… 🙂 Staff training:”With the funding provided in 2019, we decided to send two caregivers on a six month accredited course that adapts Home Based Care to work specifically with children with special needs. I am happy to announce that both Thobeka Mzamane and Busisiwe Luhabe achieved an overall average of more than 90%, and we had the priviledge of attending their graduation ceremony on the 29th of October. In South Africa, the cycle of poverty is such that many African adults from a poor background faced the reality of indifferent education and leaving school before completing their basic training, which has impacted on the number of skilled people ready for the open labour market. With the economic decline South Africa has experienced, this has meant that even people who are employed have to live in unsafe areas, using unsafe transport services and being exposed to the many social problems that exist in these communities. This course has not only meant providing the opportunity gain a recognised qualification, but also encouraged them to further their school careers. One of the two has indicated that she will be attending college next year to study Maths literacy and gain her matric endorsement, which will allow her to study for a degree.” We are more than happy for these great results and what it will mean for so many going forward! Congratulations and lots of love to Thobeka and Busisiwe!! Very well done❤️
