Situhle - The star of the day!
Last week was a busy week, with Stefan and Matthias away on holiday and Paul and Marcus in Pretoria with AMREF for an OVC workshop. So the office was very quiet, but still remained productive!
The highlight of the week was an event on Saturday, led by our trainer Situhle, to coincide with Festival 2010′s week of action. All delegations were encouraged to publicise their participation, as the Festival 2010 site was being opened in Alexandra.
Situhle came up with the idea to run a tournament, with kids who had been excluded from the original selection given their chance to play! The kids who had been selected for Festival 2010 were also there, as mentors for the event and to give them something to aspire to.
Unfortunately many of the kids seemed put off by the rain, but we eventually had a good turn out, some 2 hours later, once the rain had cleared!
Situhle deserves a big thank you for her help. To find out more about her please have a look at Situhle′s profile
