Joy to the world!

UCSA’s Project team had a Holiday programme in Wallacedene, Scottsdene en Scotville in the Western Cape during the December Holidays. Daily between 8h00 – 16h00 for two weeks, they worked with the kids of these areas, played games with them and taught them various life skills.  Over this time period they worked with +/- 2100 youngsters between the ages of 7 – 16

Here are three testimonies of these events:

 Marius Jones (facilitator): 

 “What an eye opener! These young ones live in total fear everyday, especially because of gangsterism and also the great need in the community. They live in very harsh conditions

   It was the festive season and every day parents come to us for a sandwich, because they had nothing else at home. Then I think at how blessed we are to have a spread at Christmas time. – We are truly blessed!! ” 

Morgan (a lady from the community):

  “Wat ek hou van julle groep is dat julle baie georganiseerd was.  Wat uitstaan is hoe julle werk met die kinders en julle geestelike inslag is wat nodig is in ons gemeenskap. Mag God julle seen, julle is “great”!  Hoop ons kan elke vakansie saamwerk.” 

 Denwill Philander (Grade 1  boy):

   “The week was nice.  I played, learned and had happy moments.  I got to know some people better.  I have learned how to make good choices because I don’t like school but you guys inspired me that if I stay in school my dreams will come true with God”.
