We couldn't be more proud of our incredible group of girls. They show up with enthusiasm week after week. They took notes without being asked, they participated with little to no encouragement. They recalled and shared learning from the past modules. They were a collective gift led by a team of dedicated and compassionate facilitators and volunteers.
Becoming Me - Life Skills Programs 2022
Sawubona Project is offering free Life Skills programs in Msholozi, a semi-informal and growing community in South Africa. The interactive programs are offered after school, they are engaging and dig deep into important topics such as self-esteem, abuse, menstruation, healthy relationships, HIV/AIDS and much more. We're thankful to have been able to expand our program to include a co-ed group as well as a girls only group.
Learning more than basic and important facts, they girls are helping each other understand and embrace why menstruation is valuable and good.
Unfortunately abuse is not uncommon within the community. Helping the girls understand emotional and physical abuse is super important. A small deposit toward investing in a future that does not tolerate abuse.
