Become an Aitsa! mentor
Our senior children participate in a mentorship programme in groups of no more than 4. In these groups they are given space to be themselves and develop acceptance, love and confidence. They are guided through the Heartlines curriculum which focuses on positive values. If you have energy and a love for children, values similar to that of Aitsa!, 45 minutes a week and the ability to commit for a year, please contact Marietjie Steyn on 0823376242.
Volunteer your time and your skills
Give your time and expertise: If you have time to spare (half an hour/hour a week), come and share your talent or come and read or come and play. Chess, tennis, cycling, dancing- these kids are hungry for any form of stimulation and play. Bring your own kids along and introduce them to community work and how one can make a difference in and around your area. Offer your services on the management committee- accounting, website, newsletters, fundraising. Bring your colleagues and treat the children to a special afternoon of fun activities!
