One of the girls in our program is now, after Khula's intervention, attending her school (Dorothea School for special needs) regularly and has not only had a positive change in her attitude, but at home as well. She attends school regularly and is eager to help out in the kitchen and do small tasks in and around the house. All the glory to God!

Two of our Charleston Hill Learners (girls) went on the Waterfall camp at Bergkroon and gave their lives to Jesus! We are so excited to see how these girls are growing spiritually and emotionally!
We would love to see many more of these learners to give their lives to Jesus, but have a serious shortage of volunteers at Charleston Hill. We take the boys and girls seperately each week and need volunteers on Thursday mornings to help oversee all of these Champions one-on-one. Please contact us if you feel this is part of your calling (021) 871 1511 – Zelda Roode (Volunteer Co-ordinator).
We have five learners- of which one cannot read and two are on grade one level in our program at Paarlzicht Primary school. They all are experiencing domestic violence at home, but are part of our Champions Program! We are so amazed to be able to help them in their circumstances.
Two boys were on their way to be deregistered from school, because of absence and substance abuse, but the Headmaster asked our Auxilliary Social Worker, Brendon to inspect their circumstances first, to enable him to make the correct desicion. After referals and investigation we are now in the process to get these two boys into a rehabilitation program, but in the meantime the school will keep them enrolled.
The year began quickly and with many new challenges, our children are exposed to so many things which we doesn't even think of, let alone experience. One of our dearly beloved and popular boys in Nederburg Primary school, who knows the word physical abuse very well came and gave one of our co-ordinators a tight hug, telling her how much he loves her and that she will never know what all her hugs and smiles means to him! Praise God!
We are very excited to have been able to start the Explorers Program at Weber Gedenk Primary school, Stellenbosch. The school welcomed us with open arms. The first day we already experienced the Lord going ahead of us and we had the opportunity to pray with a teacher.
We received educational toy boxes from a donor and this makes learning fun for the children and I can already see the fruit of the gift.
