The prime purpose of being four is to enjoy being four - of secondary importance is to prepare for being five

 Sisanda are currently looking for 8 young
people aged 16-18 to volunteer at our upcoming Youth Connect event.  
Youth Connect is a peer mentoring programme giving young people the opportunity to volunteer their skills and time with younger children from disadvantaged communities at an organised Sisanda event.  Tuesday 3rd October, Sisanda have organised a fantastic workshop opportunity with Zip Zap Circus Theatre for 16 young volunteers to work with 32 children aged 8-10years from iKhaya le Themba in Hout Bay.  Your role on the day will be to support 2 children throughout the workshop and participate in the activities.  Its a great opportunity to share skills and connect with children from different communities, allowing you as a volunteer to engage with younger children as a positive role model and young leader.

You must be available from 08h30 13h00 on Tuesday 3rd October.  You must be able to arrange your own transport and meet the Sisanda team at the Zip Zap Dome in Founders Garden
(next to the ArtsCape).

We received this wonderful thank you letter from The Happy Africa Foundation!



Dear Sisanda FunDaytion
On behalf of our Buyelekhaya Girls Dance Group we want to thank Sisanda FunDaytion for organising our amazing day out. All the girls, Vuyo the group leader, and our staff and volunteers had a fabulous day. The girls loved being active; learning self-defence a skill that will help them for life, and the calming ways of yoga. The way that the girls were spoken to, in terms they understood, about relationships and life choices was also really engaging and hopefully some of those lessons will help them in their future choices.

The goody bags were such a hit, the girls absolutely loved them. So many of them were carrying around bags stuffed full of sanitary wares, toiletries and breakfast snacks in a way that showed they were thrilled to be taking home such things.

The lunch at Spur also meant everyone was fuelled up after an active morning and went home with full stomachs. Vuyo was so thankful for the day and really enjoyed herself, strutting around in her t-shirt and posing in the restaurant for photos! Thank you for fundraising and coordinating such a wonderful day which the girls will remember forever!

Kind regards
The Happy Africa, Girl Impact and African Impact Cape Town teams!
