We love to share the feedback of the impact that StreetSmart funding is having on the lives of vulnerable children.
Cape Town Multi Service Centre received funding from StreetSmart Cape Town towards two aftercare teachers’ salaries, a family reconstruction worker salary, aftercare supplies, as well as child and youth care worker training.
“One of the grade 3 learners was not showing interest in the aftercare initially and would not attend regularly, but as time passed one could notice that her self-confidence improved, and she started asking questions when she did not understand. She began to show interest in her work and is currently one of those children who arrive first at the aftercare. A lot of improvement can also be observed in her mathematical skills which she struggled with at the beginning of the academic year. She is normally very excited when giving feedback of what transpired in class during the day.”
