Today we opened child friendly consulting rooms at another school …and next week we will be doing it all again !

We were welcomed by Mr Boonzaaier, principal of Wemmershoek Primary in Franschhoek, and we shared the stage with our partners Dr Clinton Goliath (Western Cape Education Department circuit manager) and Ivan Swartz of Valcare.

During his address, Community Keepers CEO, Gerrit Laning, re-told the story of Oliver Twist and related physical hunger to a child’s hunger for support. Just as you can not teach a hungry child, you also can not teach a traumatised child.

Building a culture of well-being is a shared responsibility.
