Khayelitsha is Cape Town’s largest and fastest growing township – so large in fact that the quality of life differs dramatically from one area to another. Our youth members in Khayelitsha are at huge risk from drugs, gangs, physical and sexual abuse. Their communities are faced with many problems relating to poverty and overcrowded informal housing areas with large numbers of unemployed among community members.
The ‘To be a child again’ Khayelitsha club was established in August 2011. Head Project Leader Nontsasa Nyovane runs the club out of two shipping containers situated on the property of Kuyasa, a local primary school. The club operates a feeding scheme with early hot dinner supplied at all club meetings. The members of the club are particularly strong in writing and performing plays. Our Khayelitsha Club has a total of 45 members.
Head project leader Nontsasa Nyovane also runs a school feeding scheme for 160 children and is involved in programmes to educate learners on HIV, TB, and teenage pregnancy.
