Child Protection Programmes

Day- and after care Projects

Mentoring and/or the development of day care centres presenting early childhood development programmes, as well as centres for the after care of school-going children in the communities.

Children from poverty stricken areas do not normally have access to day care centres, because it is not affordable for their care givers/parents. By means of Emanang Nokeng’s involvement at day care centres these much needed services become accessible to these vulnerable children. It further prevents children from stay alone at home or loitering in the streets of disadvantaged communities where they become vulnerable for crime and exploitation.

Activities presented provide educational growth. The centres strive towards meeting the basic physical, religious, emotional and psychological needs. Early signs of child abuse and neglect can be detected at an early stage and be addressed. Service delivery to these children can be monitored as well.

Examples of such centres are as follows:

• Gembou Aksie

• Sunrise in Kagiso

• Jabulani, and TLC in Randfontein

• Magaliesburg After Care in Gamogale

Support services delivered to grandmothers taking care of orphans in Dobsonville and Magaliesburg (Gamogale). Support groups are presented in co-ordination with Dr Arnold Smith, a specialist in this area. Because poverty is mostly an issue in these families, skills development forms part of these programmes. In Dobsonville the grannies runs a food garden project and in Magaliesburg the do arts and crafts in order to help them to become more independent regarding their material needs.

Development Resources

More privileged communities are motivated and mobilised to become involved in disadvantaged communities.

Because communities are mobilised to address the social problems within their own communities, volunteers in the different communities is recruited and trained on a continuous basis.

Upcoming community based organisations can also approach Emanang Nokeng West Rand for mentorship activities. These upcoming and developmental organisations are mentored up to a level where they could function independent and sustainable.
