This programme has been established to enable those who have, in the past, benefited from assistance and guidance through HABSR, these beneficiaries now have an opportunity to become mentors and share skills they have acquired, with children who are being cared for, thereby offering inspiration and encouragement to others within HABSR's programmes. This give back skills sharing programme is offered to candidates from the ages of 16 years of age onwards, and the recipients will be all children who are being cared for within HABSRs programmes.
Our programmes include:
- Safe Parks,
- Early Childhood Development Centres and
- Feeding Schemes, as well as
- Home Based Care and
- Uthandu Child Care Advocate Programme.
This programme runs for a full year from January to November each year. A total of 4 Hours per week will be needed to be spent within the chosen programme, and quarterly feedback on involvement in the programme needs to be submitted to HABSR. Close contact will be kept with the associated Priest or Supervisor looking after the project. A time sheet will need to be kept and signed off each month.
The intern will have the opportunity to decide what skill he/she would like to share with the project and formulate a set of outcomes. These outcomes will also be able to contribute towards improving service delivery to the programme at the end of their internship.
What is needed to be part of the internship?
An application form,
copy of ID,
Signed Code of conduct and a
Police clearance certificate is required for entrance to this programme.
On completion of the internship at the end of the year, a token of appreciation in the form of a certificate of involvement will be presented by the Bishop at a function in late November each year.
