We are grateful for the real long-lasting societal change that StreetSmart funding enables through our beneficiaries’ programmes.
TLC Outreach Projects received funding from StreetSmart Cape Town, towards family reconstruction worker and field worker salaries, and related transport costs.
Debbie, aged 16, attends the T.L.C. Life Skills programme daily. She comes from a home of addiction and too found herself doing drugs, sex for companionship, and making wrong choices of friends.
Her brothers are all on drugs and she has never attended school. Sadly this was not a priority in her family, as substance abuse got priority.
Her brother was murdered eight months ago, which just compounded the trauma she is experiencing in her life.
Debbie has been faithfully attending our classes since 2019, and she learning how to read and write.
We are so proud of her!
