In the 2nd week of November Mondli Zwane began to hand out certificates to the various children in the schools in Inanda. A programme of 13 lesson in line with a training manual focusing on three key aspects:
Conflict Identification& Management
Began in May 2016. This programme provides learners with skills to identify forms of discrimination and prejudice in their lives as well as in themselves and therefore works towards giving them the necessary tools to change themselves and improve the environment they live and learn in.
In addition the training focuses on HIV/AIDS, domestic violence and issues of diversity. After three years of training involving thousands of students from over 50 schools we decided to focus on a fewer numbers and work intensively with them with the idea of developing leadership skills in the students and thereby training peers.
The certificate handing is the outcome of this intense programme. This will now be evaluated and rolled out more widely next year.
