After experiencing Saturday’s events it became clear that those wonderful children were teaching me life-skills too!

Leliebloem House


Do the right thing! Circle

Wendy and Hannah McGregor are a Canadian mother&daughter Team who spent two weeks of their holiday volunteering in Cape Town. Wendy is an expert on “Bullying” and has given many workshops addressing this social issue to various groups of privileged and underprivileged children.

Through a Drama-workshop, the two volunteers addressed the issue of “bullying” with the children of Leliebloem House. The show at the end of this intensive 2-week Circle brought tears to everyone: to the volunteers who were so proud of "their children", to the carers because they couldn't believe the uncovered talent and to the children as they wanted to keep the volunteers :) Who knows: rumor has it one of the two might be back next year ...

Additionally to leading this Circle, our two canadian volunteers gave talks on “bullying” and “violence against women” to several organisations throughout Cape Town (one of them being the ADP Group of Leliebloem).

Lastly - Wendy and Hannah MacGregor visited Ncedolwethu in Mfuleni with us and donated not one or two items on their wish-list, but all of them: electricity for the winter, blankets, food, nappies and some kitchen-items :)
