Khayalethu – Epworth School
11/7/17 12:36 PM
Yesterday we had the opportunity to speak at Epworth School in Pietermaritzburg. The students were very interested and listened carefully to what Katha told them about the General work YFC KZN does and also what Greg told them about the Streetwork they are doing.
The Girls are going to do a competition over the next two weeks and the house that collects the most bread, jam, juice and peanut butter will be delivering the sandwiches to the kids we are working with.
We are very grateful for their great support and are looking forward to a great partnership. May God bless you all.
Khayalethu – Job hunting
10/31/17 12:11 PM
Last week the Out of School Youth Project was doing training on Communication skills and how to do a Job Interview properly. They have also been helping individuals on improving different skills like welding, sewing and customer service etc.
At the end of the training they went on a job hunting tour through Pietermaritzburg. The young people were able to leave their CV’s with different companies. They would be also very happy if someone could offer them further training or a job opportunity. We wish all of you all the best for your job search.

Mxolisi – a sensible child or a classic child labour victim?
09/11/15 3:16 PM
Mxolisi comes from a home that is very poor. No adult in the family is employed. Mxolisi decided that he would go to the nearby farm to do some work, where he is given oranges by the farmer. He then takes the oranges and sells them in the community to make some money for bread and other items for his home.
