Naaldwerk-projek bring hoop vir Strand-vroue ’n Nuwe projek van Badisa in Strand het ten doel om werklose vroue op te lei om ’n inkomste uit hul handwerk te maak. Die projek leer tans vyf vroue vaardighede wat hulle in staat sal stel om ’n inkomste te verdien, sê Badisa se Odette Gordon, koördineerder van die naaldwerkprojek. “Die naaldwerk projek is in Junie vanjaar begin met die doel om vroue uit minderbevoorregte gemeenskappe vaardighede te leer om hul eie klere en huishoudelike items te maak, sowel as om hulle te leer om entrepreneurs te word,” sê Gordon. Die vroue leer hoe om duvets, sakke en kussingslope te maak, en hulle wil ook graag leer klere maak. Katie Arendse, een van die vroue wat aan die projek deelneem, sê die vroue wil hul vaardighede ontwikkel. “Ons doen dit want ’n mens wil

jouself uplift.” Die nuwe vaardighede bied hul ook die geleentheid om ’n inkomste te verdien. “Werk is so skaars. Daar is baie vroue wat sit en niks doen nie. Die projek gee ons kans om ’n geldjie te verdien,” sê Sophia Jason, die klasfasiliteerder. En hulle sê die klasse is ’n uitdaging. “Jy werk ook met jou hande, en nie altyd met die masjien nie. Dis baie interessant om die eindresultaat van jou ontwerpe te sien,” sê Linda Cooksen, een van die vroue wat ook aan die projek deelneem. Gordon sê die projek was oorspronklik beplan om naaldwerk vaardighede aan jong vroue te leer, maar die belangstelling in die projek het egter van die ouer vroue in die gemeenskap gekom. “Die groep wil uitbrei sodat hulle ander vroue naaldwerk kan leer,” sê

Hier is (van links) Linda Cooksen,Odette Gordon, Sophia Jason, Katie Arendse en Cleoné Orlam met pragtige naaldwerk wat hulle self gedoen het. Gordon. “Hulle wil meer items maak, maar as gevolg van geldelike gebrek asook ’n gebrek aan materiaal, kan hulle nie.” Gordon sê enige sken-

kings om die inisiatief suksesvol te maak is welkom. Vir enige navrae bel Odette Gordon by 021 853 1888.

It’s all in the presentation NICOLE MCCAIN With so much pomp and ceremony, the handover of 500 blankets in Nomzamo on Thursday could have been the signing of an international treaty – all while some of the community’s poorest residents patiently waited to receive their one blanket and warm meal. Thinking they were going to receive just a bit of winter warmth, donated by the Chinese community living in Cape Town, none of the Nomzamo residents was expecting an entire delegation of the expatriates, bearing

banners and flags. The residents, who were carefully selected by NGO Mustadafin Foundation as those worst affected by heavy flooding in the area, gathered at the community hall in Nomzamo to await the guest of honour: Liang Shugen, consul general of China. Shugen was running about half an hour late, but made up for it with grand entrance and an entourage of around 50 members of the Chinese community, who soon circulated little Chinese flags for the Nomzamo residents to wave in anticipation of the gifts to come. Fortunately, the residents had the flags to keep them busy while they waited again, this time for the Chinese community members to form a symbolic chain to pass the blankets inside. This was followed by a breakdown of the speaker system, which meant that at 15:00 the five speeches and opening prayer had to proceed without amplification. The consul general spoke of how much the Chinese community cared for South African residents, such as those gathered in the hall, before the City of Cape Town’s mayoral committee member for safety and security, JP Smith, taught the hall, filed with a majority

After an hour and a half of waiting, it was finally time for the residents to each receive their blanket, no small feat when 500 names had to be ticked off the list. The delegates beat a hasty retreat to Sir Lowry’s Pass for the next round of donations, leaving Ward 85’s Councillor Mbuyiselo Matha and a handful of Law Enforcement officers to deal with a mountain of blankets towering over them.

Meer taalopsies by OTM’s? NICOLE MCCAIN Die Wes-Kaapse minister van kultuursake en sport, dr. Ivan Meyer, het onlangs sy teleurstelling uitgespreek omdat isiXhosa nie ’n taalopsie by alle outomatiese tellermasjiene (OTM’s) in die Wes-Kaap is nie. Volgens die Grondwet van die Wes-Kaap is Engels, Afrikaans en isiXhosa die amptelike tale van die provinsie. Die Gazette het Helderberg-inwoners se menings oor die opsie vir ’n huistaalkeuse by OTM’s gevra.

Louis McIvis van Sir Lowry’s Pass sê dis ’n baie goeie idee om ’n wyer taalkeuse by OTM’s te hê. “Almal kan dan daarvan gebruik maak. As ek nie Engels of Afrikaans verstaan nie, sal ek steeds die OTM kan gebruik.”

Cynthia Mki from Macassar Village doesn’t think the additional language options are necessary. “It’s right with just English. isiXhosa is a very difficult language, and it would be difficult to use in an ATM system.”

Sharon Innes of Gordon’s Bay thinks isiXhosa should be included as a language option. “Everyone should be able to use it in their own language. It might be expensive to develop the software, but it should be done. I would hate to have to use an ATM in a different language.”

Gary Ndeleni from Nomzamo says it’s good to have different language options. “People speak different languages in different areas, and banks must choose the language options according to what is most commonly spoken. But they should still all have an English option.”

Bonita May van Macassar sê: “Die meeste mense kan Engels of Afrikaans gebruik, so dis nie nodig om meer taalkeuses te hê nie.” FOTO’S: NICOLE MCCAIN

Lourensia Park occupied NICOLE MCCAIN The last unoccupied home in Lourensia Park is no longer empty, says the chairperson of the beneficiaries committee. Joyce Mzamo says a search was launched for the owner of the home after the house was allegedly broken into and used as a drug den. After Gazette reported that some of the homes in the low-cost housing project in Somerset West had been standing empty, representatives of

the City of Cape Town met the homeowners to urge them to take up residence. According to Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, mayoral committee member for human settlements for the City of Cape Town, the human settlements directorate said the homeowners are employed on nearby farms and had not yet taken occupation of their houses for work-related reasons. Other residents are in the process of renovating or furnishing their homes, and will occupy the houses

once this is done. Sonnenberg says there is no law that forces an owner to occupy the property they have acquired. The responsibility for the property rests with individual owners after they have been handed the keys to their properties. This means there is nothing to stop an owner from renting out their home, or leaving it unoccupied. Sonnenberg also warns that the City cannot provide assistance if the houses are illegally occupied in the home-owner’s absence.

Vacant houses in Lourensia Park have all been occupied.

Tuesday 28 August 2012

Well done on a ‘mess well orchestrated’ I wish to express my utter disgust at the way the Sir Lowry’s Pass community is being treated with regards to the recent moving of the families. The City of Cape Town and its officials, and Ward 100 councillor Johan Middleton, need to be acknowledged for a mess well orchestrated. Drastic steps are needed against those responsible. The powers that be changed this community’s relocation status to “humanitarian”, and roleplayers who were against relocation accepted they were in dire straits: all but the councillor and officials. The latter had lots of time to properly prepare the land, and: remove the municipal litter, which had been an eyesore for the past decade; elevate the land; provide a basic plan to assist and simplify construction of a house; lay down concrete or wooden floor (this is a humanitarian matter); take the funds spent on traffic circles and unused playgrounds in established affluent suburbs to ensure citizens are treated as human beings. The humanitarian status of the project considered the time of year – of flooding – as well as of their inability to supply their own needs. The land wasn’t elevated and so, come the past month’s torrential rain, homes were flooded; municipal litter was shoved aside, leaving the area worse than before. The opportunity to show that it wasn’t idle talk, but that there is willingness and ability

to uplift the poor, is now lost. In its place is a monument (supposedly temporary) on a humanitarian stand that is a disgrace to humanity. This needs to be taken up with the relevant authorities, including the Human Rights Commission. While the mayor and premier always are in the firing line, taking the brunt of discontent, people don’t always realise the influence officials wield. Daily reports in the news give an idea of battles raging in the mayoral hierarchy. Elements in the administration refuse to work to uplift disadvantaged communities. Therefore established suburbs sparkle against ours, which shout of neglect – for which we have only ourselves to blame. Dear Voter, start calculating the value of your vote. Come the next election, do the wise thing: sit back and hold onto your precious vote – then you’ll see. There is no way the mayor or the premier can pass the buck (now the officials smile) because they command the powers; they made the promises, and owe it to their constituency. It’s time for officialdom to stop treating some South Africans as bad accidents, disasters and dirt – they would not have their pets live under such conditions. It’s time all are treated with dignity – as equal citizens!

Crèches in red tape tangle NICOLE MCCAIN Crèches in Lwandle and other disadvantaged areas are struggling to register themselves as early childhood development (ECD) centres, thanks to a lengthy and complicated process.

And there is a desperate need for safe centres, especially in areas rife with neglect, say principals. Léanne Keet of Masikhule Childcare, an organisation that offers support to ECD centres, says there are not enough daycare facilities in Lwandle for the number of children who need looking after, especially those of parents who work. “The need exceeds the facility numbers,” says Keet, adding that this is a general problem that can also be seen in Sir Lowry’s Pass and Macassar. Constable Mthokozisi Gama, Lwandle police spokesperson, reckons the station deals with three cases of child abandonment a week. “There is a need for crèches,” says Mandisa December, head of the Our Helder ECD Forum and principal at Bright Star Crèche in Lwandle. “There are children on the street.” An ECD centre needs to apply through a social worker at the district office of the Department of Social Development. Along with the application, the centre requires several documents, including a rental agreement, zoning certificate, business plan and job descriptions for staff, along with their police clearance certificates. The early development centre needs to be registered as a non-profit organisation, which requires a constitution and other documentation. “Putting together a business plan is already difficult,” says Keet. She says many of the principals also don’t have access to computers and printers to type and print all the documents. “It’s a very frustrating process.” Masikhule works with 13 crèches in the area, and the average time it takes for a crèche to receive registration is three years, according to Keet. She says one crèche has been waiting for seven years. Some crèches say they’ve had no problems registering. Shirley Ambrose, chairperson of

Mandisa December, seen with her pupils at Bright Star Crèche, says registering an early childhood development centre is a frustrating process that often takes years to complete. PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN the board at one of the oldest crèches in Macassar, Sonskyn Pre-primary, says they followed the guidelines set out by the Department of Social Development and encountered no obstacles. The documents were compiled by the school management, and funds were raised to pay for the cost and salaries of the teachers. However, it is not so easy for others, says December. “We are struggling. You have to pay R5 000 to have plans drawn up, and then they have to be approved. I waited two months for the approval. Then you have to pay for the brick structures through fundraising, or out of your own pocket. As it is, we principals often go without pay.” Many of the school principals only speak Xhosa, says December, and this makes it difficult for them to compile the policy documents, which must be in English. Madisa says the system needs to take each centre into consideration. “I know they aren’t all safe, but they need to look at each crèche. The solution would just be: help, help, help.” The Department of Social Development did not comment on the length of the registration process or the costs involved, but referred Gazette to its booklet on the matter, titled Registration of Partial Care Facilities. The booklet makes no mention of either issue.

Got a problem? Patients at Helderberg Hospital can now voice any complaints they may have through a new system being piloted at the hospital. The system allows people to call, SMS or email a complaint and receive a response on the same day. Agents log the complaints electronically, and a reference number is sent out. Call centre agents try to resolve complaints within 20 minutes. Should the complaint require further attention, the details are sent to an official, who contacts the complainant and provides progress reports on a web-based system within two hours. Once the complaint is resolved, the complainant receives another SMS to confirm the outcome, and clients are phoned to confirm whether they are satisfied. The pilot ends in October. SMSs are charged at standard network rates; free minutes don’t apply. SMS “HELP” to 31022, or call the centre on 0860 142 142 between 07:00 and 19:00 on weekdays.

Lewellyn de Wee is seen coaching young runners for the Jag Sport and Education Foundation.

Lewellyn jogs for JAG NICOLE MCCAIN Macassar’s own Lewellyn de Wee is preparing to run the New York City Marathon in the USA come November. But for Lwellyn (30), the race is about more than just crossing the finish line – he’s running to support the JAG Sport and Education Foundation, which works to promote the health and wellbeing of children in poorer areas through sports. Lewellyn decided to share his passion for long-distance running when he started coaching primary school children at the age of 19. He joined JAG in 2010 as sports coordinator. “I have seen how JAG has made a huge im-

pact in the lives of thousands of South African children across South Africa with its Mighty Metres and Pronutro running programmes, in school and after school. That’s why I decided to raise funds for the foundation by running the New York Marathon to further the great work it does in the underprivileged communities,” says Lewellyn, who’s hoping to raise R25 000. He has already managed to manage to raise R11 000 through various fundraising events and donations. The New York City Marathon is one of the world’s largest, with over 100 000 runners entering every year. To support Lewellyn de Wee’s cause, visit www.givengain.com/activist/81689 or phone him on 081 496 2854.
