Be you in all you do

KGS, namely Kgomotso Girls of Success, held the second workshop last Saturday, September 19, and it was a big success. 69 teenage girls from KCC and other youth centres attended and learned a lot.

The theme of this workshop was "Be you in all you do". Lesego Gololo, a professional speaker, had been speaking at the event which afterwards led into a discussion about the meaning of the word unique.

The girls were very happy to have the opportunity of learning for life through these workshops. They said that they thank Kgomotso Girls of Success because now they are getting answers to what they did not know. For many of them it opened their eyes to have a closer look on certain topics very relevant to them.

The workshop ended with a nice game that was played and enjoyed by everyone. It was a singing game teaching during which girls expressed who they are and what they want to become. 

The next workshop will take place on October 17 and it will be a sports tournament including soccer, boccia, chess, and other games.

After another closure due to the lockdown situation KCC has finally opened again in February. While some activities are still restricted due to level 3 lockdown everyone at KCC was eager to start again with their work. 

Looking back at 2020, a year that has been very difficult to all of us, we want to thank those who supported us throughtout the year. After we had started with the We Can't Eat Air Campaign in April more organisations and people approached KCC to offer their help.

On the third day of the "We Can't Eat Air - Campaign" the remaining families received their long-awaited food parcels. The first phase of the campaign has now come to an end. We thank everyone who helped to make it a great success.

The second day in a row KCC staff and supporters went out to reach more families in the community providing them with food parcels. Families were crying because they had not had food for days, only surviving with drinking water.

We take actions while government is still making plans. Due to lockdown Kgomotso Children Centre had to close its doors - but it didn’t close its eyes. We started the „We Can’t Eat Air - Campaign“ to hand out food parcels to 65 families of KCC kids who are in a desperate situation.

Due to the nation-wide lockdown KCC currently is closed. Few staff are staying at the centre for cases of emergency. It's expected we willl re-open when schools open again. Stay safe!

We are bringing cinema to the township! KCC is now doing a monthly movie day for the community. Kids, youth and adults - everyone is welcome. The next movie day will be 6 and 7 of March.

Shortly after KCC had opened its doors for another year the US ambassador came for a visit to get an impression of the work that is being done at the children's centre.

Coming out on top of more than 1,000 nominees Kgomotso Nyalungo, founder of KCC, has won the community builder of the year award for the dedicated work she has been doing. 

For the second time Kgomotso Children Centre hosted the career exhibition to give adolescent students an idea on future plans, education and job possibilities.
