On the 16th June 2016 Umhlali partnered with GIZ and Izizwe to run a community festival celebrating children and youth. The event consisted of street soccer, games, face painting, mural painting, music, a fashion show, painting the wall of a crèche and art.
.A group of high school girls from Walmer Township participated in a photomapping exercise, where they were issued with cameras and asked to document life in Walmer Township from a safety perspective. These are some of their photos. Umhlali will be hosting an exhibition of the photos during the second half of the year
CJCP has released a short technical manual which acts as a guide for community workers conducting home visits are part of early crime and violence prevention services.
The guide will be available for download by the end of June 2016.
As part of our early crime and violence prevention work, Umhlali is working with a number of early childhood development centres (ECD) in Walmer Township in order to improve the quality of the ECD services to children. One aspect of the ECD work is to assist them with formally registering with the Department of Social Development (DSD). Being formally registered will allow them to access grants and other support services.
These photos are from the second in a series of workshops Umhlali is running with DSD with ECDs from Walmer Township. Many of the ECDs have begun the registration process support from Umhlali.
