Sport & Youth Development Project

Frivilligt arbejde med børn

Children living in impoverished communities have a huge need for youth development projects which serve to teach them valuable life skills such as teamwork, structure, discipline and which uplifts their self-esteem through the realization of talent.

This project is for children from severely disadvantaged areas. Mornings are spent developing preschool-aged children as well as children who do not attend school. In the afternoons we do various sport projects with the children where we teach and play soccer, netball, cricket and other team sports which not only develops the children but is also a way for the children to be exposed to better role models and to be kept busy which serves an important role in lowering socio-economic problems which are often found in these settlements, such as teenage pregnancy, delinquency, petty crime, and which lowers their chances of getting involved in gangsterism and negative behavior.

The Western Cape, where the program is based, is a very culturally diverse area of South Africa. There is a large integration of the poor with the wealthy. The main cultures that you will be working with are English or Afrikaans South Africans. The children on this program range from 12 to 14 years old and live in townships in Cape Town, such as Dunoon. Most of them can speak English, yet their home language may be Afrikaans or Xhosa. The homes they live in are often built from scrap metal and second hand wood and usually do not have running water. Forty percent of the families in these areas lack a male head of household and the children often have no one to monitor their educational progress or after-school activities. Furthermore, alcohol and drug abuse is common in the townships where they live and especially at this age they are susceptible to recruitment by local gangs.

Mere information

Vi i STA Travel Danmark er opmærksomme på de forskellige synspunkter, der eksisterer i forbindelse med frivilligt arbejde og børn.

Mange ønsker at bidrage til at hjælpe børn, som har mistet alt, og mange børnehjem i de fattigste lande er drevet af frivillige og idealister. De gør et fantastisk stykke arbejde og giver børn en mulighed for at vokse op under nogenlunde trygge forhold.

Samtidig hævder mange, at det er problematisk for børn konstant at skulle knytte sig til nye personer, som så forsvinder igen efter nogle få uger, og dette er jo ikke vanskeligt at forstå.

Derfor har vi valgt nogle projekter ud, hvor arbejdet ikke er på børnehjem, men hvor man bidrager til uddannelse i sprog og idræt i lokalområder, hvor retten til uddannelse ikke er en selvfølge.
