I'm training caregivers working for an AIDS organisation on how to teach children from the Bible today. It's part of a project that I need to do for my phase 1 studies. There is a group of caregivers who run support groups for orphans and vulnerable children in the schools in the Grahamstown township. These caregivers are virtually volunteers, they are paid so little. They have very little education themselves. But rather than sit at home and do nothing, they work for this organisation. I hope by giving them some skills they can function more efficiently in the work that they do. And give them the confidence to actually do it!
I'm a bit nervous actually. Although I've met with the people at the AIDS organisation four times, I have had a different impression of what they do every time. I hope that what I offer them will be useful. I'm planning to meet with them eight times for training. They also want me to come with them to the support groups, but that will depend on how much time I have available!
