Eddie’s story:

Eddie is four years old. Born to a mom who couldn’t care for him, she put him in the care of an informal ‘caregiver’ when he was less than a year old. He was one of nine children living with this lady, in two shacks which were attached to the house she lived in. The shacks were filthy, unsafe, unhygienic and cold. When Eddie and the other children came to the attention of social workers, he was removed immediately because of concerns for his health and safety- they thought he might die if he was left there any longer. He was taken to go and live in a baby sanctuary where he remained for several months.

Kidstop’s focus is to connect with the children and youth, through street outreach and the Drop-in Centre, where the children participates in a variety of activities giving each child the opportunity to develop his or her own individual talent.

 

The children find a safe environment where they can learn informally and get motivated to prepare for mainstream schooling. These children are placed into mainstream schools with great success.

BecomingKids functions as one of the projects under Stellumthombo, a registered NPC with PBO status. BecomingKids is an early intervention programme focusing on high risk children living in the Cloetesville area in Stellenbosch. This programme addresses the needs of such children through a holistic approach that focuses on the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of each individual child and has a specific focus on mentorship and peer learning.

School of Hope is a registered special-needs secondary school that provides a second chance at education for at-risk, vulnerable children and youth, that includes former street children, rehabilitated drug addicts, and children from abusive, neglectful homes. There is no requirement of an entrance exam, only the prerequisite that students demonstrate a willingness to learn. They offer computer application technology (CAT) as a compulsory subject to ensure that every learner leaves the school in possession of knowledge that they can use in the current information age and in their future career.

PEN-Streetwise Projects reaches out to orphaned, vulnerable and street children, reconciling them where possible, with their families. Alternatively, children who do not have access to family, parents or caring adults, are offered care and support at the Leratong Child and Youth care Center.

PEN Streetwise Project received R15,000 from StreetSmart Pretoria, towards a social worker salary.
