Umhlanga Rotary


Two years ago Rotary Umhlanga, together with the Rotary Club of Drachten de Wouden in Holland, funded one of our rehabilitation courses. Subjects covered were communication skills, decision making, trust issues, health, life planning, fear and anxiety, crime and drug abuse, sexuality, HIV & Aids, self esteem and family relationships.
37 boys completed one of the three programmes during the sponsorship and of these 13 are home with family and self-suppporting, 10 are back with family but still in our aftercare programme, 7 are living in our I Care houses, and 5 are currently completing skills training. Sadly there are two boys who have returned to the streets after being reunited with family.
However, we feel that a 95% success rate is pretty good and we thank Rotary for helping to make this possible through their kindness and compassion.
