Promissing initiatives
Small scale acts of compassion & solidarity

 Here a number of "Rays of light" that were pointed out to us and are
 an example of what can be achieved when we realise that
                                                 We are one,
                                                 We can end suffering.
                                                 On any scale !

 Please look at their web site, its easy to transfer them money or
 become regular donor .

The Othandweni
 programme delivers a holistic service to youth at risk in the inner city of Johannesburg.

Basic Care and promoting human rights
Annually 20 female and 20 male youth are taken off the streets and placed in the 10-month Entrepreneurial training programme. Skills- and self development training is presented. Youth who need less intervention will be referred to the training programmes of Entuthukweni. A follow-up period of a year follows the training period assisting graduates to find employment. During the training and follow-up period the youth are assisted with social relief e.g. accommodation, food, clothing etc.
Outreach workers do outreaches to the streets and build relationships with the children/youth on the streets. Individual Development Plans are drawn up for each child/youth. A drug rehabilitation programme is available. Two meals per day are provided from the drop-in centre. Shower and washing facilities are available. Family preservation is done to reunite youth with their families. Assistance is given to youth who are in conflict with the law and the Family Group Conference diversion programme is implemented.
