Life-Skills Competition Results

One does not need a curriculum to learn life-skills. Every incident or situation can become a class-room. 

That is whyYouthzones launched the life-skills competition only on the website, to teach participants that if you spend time on constructive things, you put yourself into a situation to benefit. Like they say: you have to create your own luck. 

The adjudication was done by an independent third party in…

The teacher becomes the student

On our last visit to Evaton North, we planned to catch up with our friends at the school and to teach them some techniques to write a proper CV.  When we arrived at the school, Simon led us up to the computer room, where Ayunda and the students were finishing up class. Upon entering the room, we found ourselves in the middle a session, where speeches were being delivered.  We found our seats, and listened intently as the next speeches were delivered.  When the speech began, the words rang…

It has students comprising of youth from honeydew stretching across Cosmo City and Nooitgedacht all the way to Diepsloot, Lion Park and Fourways.

The feeling inside the school was the opposite as we were let in to fulfill our appointments with the…

We play, we learn, we get kicked

Football can be a great educational tool, to teach us life-skills and help us grow up. But it can also be a place where we learn to behave stupid! Some football teams is just an excuse to fight, drink and get girls- some even do crime together! 

Luckily, with all the teams we work with as part of youthzones, football is a tool for education and growing. So what makes the difference, what makes football to sometimes be good and sometimes be bad? I think it has everything to do…

ABI is on the move

It takes time to water the plant, to feed with the right nutrients everyday. If one feed the plant once in a while it automatically wilt and dies. Then it automatically involves follow-up and taking responsibility. Lately I have been witnessing through the assistance and patience of ABI, now the fruits are…
