Message from the Director Sandra Morreira

The global economic picture is gloomy, companies’ profits are down, unemployment is up, and individuals are struggling to maintain a decent standard of living. Charities everywhere are affected because there is not enough money to support good causes. And yet, within this rather dark scenario, there are always people who shine a light of hope by giving generously of their time and resources. The Homestead is fortunate to have so many supporters, who give in a myriad of ways. We are fortunate to live in a province and city which provide us with part of the funding we need. Thank you to everyone who appreciates that we cannot ignore the plight of the most vulnerable children in our city. Despite the generosity of so many, this year was difficult for us, and our 2012 financial statements reflected a loss in terms of income and expenditure. This is the first time in many years that we find ourselves in this position. However, our fixed and current assets show that we are still in a healthy position, and the 2013 financial year has started off

Stua rt Hendry with reasonable funding, Nontwenhle Mchunu so we believe that this Phouza an Siebritz will be a better year. Sam my Will iam s The detailed audited financial statements for the year ended March 2012 can be viewed on our website at www.homestead.org.za. The new building in Khayelitsha is nearing completion, and we hope to move in before the end of 2012. This project has been a huge challenge to the organisation, financially and developmentally. We extend thanks to everyone who has contributed to The Homestead reaching this dream, which has taken many years to achieve. The recent explosion of teen gangs in Khayelitsha is a sign of the breakdown in family and community cohesiveness. Gangs are a way for young people to fill the social and psychological needs that the family and community fail to fill, so Khayelitsha is certainly one of the places where we need to be in order to try and strengthen families. The Homestead looks forward to an exciting new chapter in its history as our work in this community grows and develops.

Our new building in Khayelitsha takes shape.


Early Intervention Children who live, beg or work on the streets The Homestead actively reaches out to children where they are – on the streets in both disadvantaged communities and more affluent areas. We try to preserve children within their families through prevention and early intervention services. Services at this level need to be flexible in order to adapt to the changing needs of children, families and communities. Street outreach This remains the key to engaging children in formal programmes. Our approach to street work varies according to the needs of each community. In central Cape Town and affluent areas, many of the children reached are already living on the streets. In Khayelitsha, many children have dropped out of school and ‘work’ for small change at taxi ranks and vegetable stalls. In Manenberg, many children are out of school and at risk of becoming involved in gangs and drugs. 2


Drop in centres

Afternoon care programme

We run drop in centres in Cape Town, Manenberg and Khayelitsha. Each centre has a different focus, based on the needs of the children in that area. In Cape Town, developmental sessions sometimes had to take place on the streets, as substanceabusing children are reluctant to accept services. In Khayelitsha, the centre catered for 54 boys through everyday programmes and school holiday activities, and in Manenberg, 45 children participated in the programme. The centres offer children a safe place off the street either morning or afternoon (depending on community dynamics), provide two simple healthy meals, and run developmental programmes which include therapeutic, lifeskills, educational and recreational activities. From drop in centres, we try to get children back into the education system. We assisted 18 children to get back into local schools or the Learn To Live bridging school, and provided 24 children with school uniforms.

The programme provides psychosocial support to 30 vulnerable children identified through the teachers at Isikhokelo Primary School in Khayelitsha. The programme, offered by a qualified social auxilliary worker, assists children through counselling and building on each child’s strengths through problem-solving activities. Forty children were given school uniforms in 2011/12, which improved their self-esteem. Family preservation and parenting skills training The primary goal of early intervention is to strengthen families so that they can provide adequate care for their children. 1 500 home visits were carried out to 600 families, many of which were referred to appropriate helping agencies. Seventyfour parents attended our parenting skills training workshops. During Child Protection Week 2012, 57 children and 44 parents attended two ‘family strengthening’ fun days filled with positive interactions between parents and their children.

Ubunye Beadworks

A

s part of The Homestead’s efforts to view the challenges that children and families face holistically, we cannot help but notice that poverty and unemployment are at the core of many of them. Ubunye Beadworks has grown over the years from its initial base in Manenberg to its current base in central Cape Town, so that it can accommodate women from other disadvantaged communities. Ubunye Beadworks provides an opportunity for mothers to change their often difficult lives by giving them the opportunity to learn beadwork skills, make a small income for the family, and develop work ethics within a supportive environment. Last year the project served 30 women, six of whom were new participants referred by our early intervention project in Khayelitsha. In addition, a revolving ‘loan’ scheme has assisted several women to purchase wooden wendy houses so that they can set up a home for their family in a relative or friend’s back yard. Last year, we provided a house for Yumne and we are in the process of getting a house for Elize. This letter from Elize describes what the project means to her: “I would like to thank The Homestead for everything they are doing for my family. I have four children and it’s really difficult to raise them. But the help of the Ubunye Beadworks project it really makes things easier for me. The project provided my children with school clothes, help me with food, clothes and even blankets. When I really need something I know I can ask and if the manager can she will help! With the help of Lindy Hirschsohn my family for the first time will be moving into our own first home soon! My children are really excited and cannot wait. I don’t know how I would be able to do all these things if it weren’t for my work at Ubunye Beadworks. I want to say thank you very much. You really make a difference in me and my family’s lives.”


In memory of Nicky Jantjies

The project had two wonderful conference orders last year – for the University of the Western Cape and the South African Society of Anaesthetists (SASA). SASA ordered 1 200 conference bags with beaded logos, provided a stall at no cost for us to sell our products, and each attendee was encouraged to make a donation to The Homestead. This gave us great exposure. Lindy Hirschsohn and her ‘angels’ in Chicago continued to bring in orders, thanks to their excellent marketing and deep commitment to the women. Barrons stocked our wine bags, and two young people ordered yarmulkes with specially designed beadwork – Alex Chapman for his bar mitzvah and Ryder Kamins for her

death of Nicky on We were deeply saddened by the bat mitzvah. Thank you t of Ubu nye from the 18th Apr il 2012. Nicky was par to these young people for her throug h many supporting our work as star t and the project suppor ted last, Nicky. they make the transition to tou gh times. Rest in peace at adulthood. Spar Cape Quarter Here she is pictu red stocked our bags this year, (top back) and a wonderful spin-off with her was their offer to have a child ren Mandela Day drive for The Homestead with tin collections, a pancake stand with proceeds to the organisation and a stall for sale of our products. It is great to have local support. We would also like to thank those who support our shop at 150 Strand Street and pop in on a regular basis to place special orders and buy gifts.

The Homestead Intake Centre

T

he Residential Care Programme provides alternative ‘out of home’ care for the reception and stabilisation of street children. Children are placed at The Homestead for no longer than six months on a form 36 or Children’s Court Order. We provide a structured and therapeutic environment for boys between six and 17 years. The boys have complex needs and may have highly challenging behaviours requiring intensive support during their placement. The boys are encouraged to achieve their personal goals, including education, recreation, positive relationships and life skills. The key element of the programme is their stabilisation. On the street the boys move around a lot, sometimes eating and sometimes not, they are emotionally unstable, and have no routine and structure. Our main goal is to gradually introduce the children to routine and structure. During the stabilisation programme, the child care workers keep the daily routines and manage behaviours, while the social workers work therapeutically with each child.

6

We strive towards creating a safe and nurturing environment for the boys in our care. Patience is of the utmost importance in working towards the emotional stability of the children. Staff members are non-judgemental and all the children are treated with respect and love. Facial expressions and body language are important when communicating with the boys. Staff members must be fully present and alert. Boys are rewarded for every little positive step with acknowledgement and encouragement. We do not believe in blanket discipline, but individuals are disciplined for individual behaviours. It is important for the boys not to experience the discipline as a punishment, but rather as reparation, rectification and an opportunity to learn from their mistakes. Therefore, we always try to link the consequence with the behaviour and give the child the opportunity to try and make it right. Once the child has been consistent in the programme for approximately two months, it is important to start preparing


him for his long-term placement, whether that is moving to another Child and Youth Care Centre, being reunified with his family or country of origin. This is done through individual counselling and group work. The child is also taken to the facility that he will be moving to for an orientation visit. Phasing a child into the new placement is done where possible. During the last financial year 119 boys received care, and 70 percent of them were successfully reunited with relatives or placed in alternative care. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung saw the mandala as “a representation of the unconscious self�, and believed painting mandalas enabled us to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality. These mandalas were done by the boys. The therapeutic process included working on something over a period of days and even weeks. To have something kept safely and returned upon request was in itself healing for many of the boys. Each unique completed artwork forms part of this affirming collaborative display which brings beauty and uplifts the spirit. This is symbolic of each individual contributing gifts and talents to the community and to the world. 7


The Joys of Volunteering

Marion Wagner Trevor and I became volunteers at the Intake Shelter over a year ago. I would like to share some of my memories to explain why I volunteer and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

Who Can Swim?

The Story of James and Joseph

ne day, the boys said that they wanted to swim. We promised to take them the following weekend and headed for Blue Downs Pool. “Who can swim?”, was our first question as we stood on the side of the pool, and all hands shot up. With squeals of delight, they leapt in, only for us to have to perform five rescues in the next five minutes! On the way back, they pleaded to go again, which led to my decision to spend the next six months becoming a certified swimming instructor and campaigning for the City of Cape Town to give us free access to Long St Baths. We succeeded, and every Thursday afternoon we go swimming. By the end of the year, every boy could swim and most of them could dive off the side of the pool.

James and Joseph were brothers who had been brought to South Africa from Zambia by a scout master who was later arrested for trafficking. After a week, Joseph, the younger one, seemed to be doing well, but James looked so sad. One day, he asked if he could take karate lessons. Shihan Bas van Stenis, a 7th Dan and the most senior Kyokushin teacher in Southern Africa, agreed to take him on, and every week we took James to his classes and watched from the side as proud “parents” while he thrived. Five weeks later, as we arrived to take James to class, we were told the good news that the boys were heading home the next morning. Shihan Bas made the evening one that James will never forget. You cannot imagine his pride on receiving his orange belt, which he was able take home to Zambia with the rest of his kit.


Getting Jack Back Jack was 14 years old and from the DRC. He came to South Africa in 2009 to seek a better education, and the family who was meant to take care of him didn’t, which resulted in him being placed at the shelter a year later. He missed his family and desperately wanted to go home. Towards the end of last year, with the support of many organisations, Jack’s paperwork was finally in order for him to return home, but there was no money to pay for his airfare. He asked me to help him and I decided to do the 50km Big Walk in November to raise funds for him. The public and friends responded and we raised over R9 000. Jack walked the last 10km in with me. At the end, he just smiled when I told him, “We’ve done it – the money is in – you are going home” and turned away as his eyes filled with tears and said “I prayed so hard”. Jack flew back home on 21st December 2011, in time to spend Christmas with his family in Kinshasa.

Other memorable events Outings with the boys have included rides on the cable car, a picnic and soccer on Noordhoek beach, Muizenberg waterslides, a soccer and hip hop workshop, ice skating at Grand West and a camp in Noordhoek. Donors have been so kind, and I love asking on behalf of the boys as people open their hearts to them and allow us to undertake activities that make such a difference in their lives. People ask, why don’t you adopt one of the boys and our answer is always the same – which one ? We want them all!

The Bridge at Elukhuselweni Child and Youth Care Centre

T

his second stage residential care programme, based in Khayelitsha, can accommodate 75 boys who need longer term care and protection, as well as boys in temporary safe care. As we deepen our therapeutic work with each child, the scars of the past become exposed. We can compare the work that we do with the South African team who participated in the 2012 Olympics – a few boys get gold medals, and some just participate. But‌ all of them are winners as they enter the process of taking control over their lives in a society that has failed them dismally. These boys deserve our respect for the spirit in which they live their lives despite the things they have had to face. They are resilient and come back fighting, for a better life, an education and a future.

10


Our new social worker shares the meaning of some words she has learned from the children at The Bridge. FAMILY – The way in which the boys accept each other, how they welcome a new child. How they still fight to maintain contact with family members even though they have treated them poorly… “but they are my family, I love them and need to see them.” PAIN – Life is not fair, pain doesn’t look at your age or how much pain you have already experienced… you have to make life work regardless of your pain. I have learned how strong a 12-year-old boy can be! ACCEPTANCE – The boys will fight about school shoes or grey school pants, because they don’t want to look like strollers anymore; they are tired of people making rude comments about them or laughing at them because they lived on the streets. They want to be like a ‘community child’… they want to be accepted. BRAVERY – When a boy lets you into his life, lets you close and lets you help him even though every other person in his life has let him down or even severely abused him. The fact that he is still willing to risk maybe getting his heart broken again, being rejected again, getting hurt again, but he still takes the chance… this is the greatest form of bravery. HUMOUR – The light in which they see life; how they make fun of the things that hurt to lessen the pain. How a child shows you in a very humorous way how he walked on the bus and someone made fun of him… it’s funny, because if it is not, it is painful. HOPE – When a 13- and 15-year-old boy talk about how they will treat their children – how much love they will give them, how they will hug and kiss their children and sit with them to do their homework… and then they add… because I never had that. Two boys who have been treated badly by the people who had to Right: Walter Peterson protect them but still have hope for one day. LOVE AND COURAGE – The way the boys love life, how they fight back, how they fight for a future in a world that barely gives them a chance.

The Homestead Sponsorship Fund

M

Amori Borman

ost boys living at The Bridge at Elukhuselweni Children’s Home have fallen behind with their education and need to attend better resourced schools to give them a chance to ‘catch up’. The Homestead Sponsorship Programme was established in 2007 to address these needs. The Sponsorship Programme initially paid for educational assessments, school fees and transport to school, but has been expanded during 2012 to provide more extramural activities for the boys. These added activities were much needed to occupy the boys, as the Khayelitsha community has been experiencing an upsurge in drug- and gang-related problems. The goal of the programme is to keep the boys busy and, more importantly, to improve their self-esteem and overall behaviour. The instructors and coaches all play a pivotal role in encouraging the boys to practise, participate and learn to believe in themselves. Participation has been superb, and many of the boys have come up with more ideas for the Sponsorship Programme. The fresh approach to healthy extracurricular activities involved better homework support, more sport activities and the introduction of interesting clubs. There has been tremendous support and goodwill from clubs, coaches and organisations to assist the boys and make these activities a success. All the coaches, instructors, volunteers and counsellors involved are either donating their services, or for very little financial compensation. We are grateful for their generosity and commitment. A very positive addition has been the involvement of unemployed youth in the programme. Ncedo is a professional Muay Thai fighter who provides training for the boys twice weekly in general fitness and kickboxing. Maninho comes to the Children’s Home on Saturday and Sunday afternoons to teach the boys to dance. Both Ncedo and Maninho get on exceptionally well with the boys, and their passion and determination to succeed in their own lives make them excellent role models. Their involvement has been so constructive that the Sponsorship Programme would like to involve more unemployed youth with these positive attributes in the future.

12


The education coordinator and two volunteers are responsible for providing homework support four afternoons a week. Coupled with continuous contact with the boys’ teachers, this resulted in an immediate improvement in their grades from the second term. The different sport options offered during 2012 included soccer, cycling, swimming, kickboxing, horse-riding and golf. Sports equipment and clothing were provided by donors and the Sponsorship Programme. The Art Club boys were enrolled at Frank Joubert Art Centre in Rondebosch where they attend art classes on Saturday mornings. The Drama Club is run by a volunteer, Sipho, and they have weekly meetings at the Children’s Home in Khayelitsha. It was a significant undertaking for the Sponsorship Programme to establish these recreational and support activities during 2012, and it is committed to continue to offer the boys these alternatives. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved for making this possible.

“For me, motivation and inspiration for the Sponsorship Programme comes from the boys and the staff. I am grateful to staff like Khaya, who is prepared to take the boys to soccer practice even on his day off. I am amazed when Buntu improves his mathematics marks from a 1 to 4 in one term. I am bursting with pride when I receive a thank you letter from Lunathi and I can see how much his writing has improved since he attends EduBlox. And I will never forget Marcell in the swimming pool with the biggest smile on his face, giving his best because the instructor told him he is a good swimmer, and calling to me ‘Kyk, Tannie, kyk’. Moments like these make the Sponsorship Programme important to me.” Amori Borman

Volunteers and supporters

T

he Homestead operates on very tight budgets and with a small staff complement on each project, especially if one considers that over half the staff work shifts as child and youth care workers. Due to these constraints, our critics often comment that we do not provide enough activities, outings and exciting events for the children. Volunteers help to fill the gaps. Amori Borman and Marion Wagner have described the wonderful work that they do, and the many volunteers who are involved in their support programmes. In addition, we would like to thank other supporters who have participated in improving the lives of the women, children and families in our projects during the past year. 14
