On Saturday afternoons from 2:00-5:00 pm approximately 50 children aged 5-15 years old attend the Hand to Hand activities program.
We play games, learn English and make crafts. All of the children get a meal before they return home and for some of them this is the most nutritious meal of the week. During the school holidays Hand to Hand extends this program to provide activities for the students during the week.
The kids club also provides a safe place for the older students to talk about issues that are affecting them at home and school. It is during this activity time where the children have disclosed abuse that is happening to them and we are able to act on their behalf to stop the perpetrator. For some children who have experienced abuse and are recovering, Hand to hand provides basic counselling through art and play therapy as well as prayer.
