CHANNELS FOR CHANGE

— Talk to Me

Fostering healing through trauma counselling and play therapy.

We employ an experienced Zulu-speaking lay counsellor, who provides free play therapy & trauma counselling services to children in disadvantaged areas, giving them a safe space to share their stories and be heard, often for the first time.

— Read to Me

Improving children's lives by improving literacy.

Read to Me, sees LINC Foundation volunteers work side by side with educators in government schools, teaching children to read in English with confidence so they can better engage with learning materials and the content of books. 

— Step Ahead

Promoting social-emotional health among our next generation.

Geared at helping young individuals who don’t necessarily have strong role models at home to learn critical skills such as: self-awareness, self-control, empathy, drive & the ability to establish & maintain healthy relationships while working towards personal goals.

Empowering individuals to break the cycle of poverty for themselves.

Helping to give people hope by equipping them with the tools they need to get (and keep) a job or to start their own business. The programme has been running successfully since 2007.

Blessing those less fortunate than us with simple acts of kindness.

This initiative takes place annually during the week of Mandela Day with the aim of getting the community involved in a variety of simple acts that bring light and hope (and practical assistance) to others in need.

My regular income reunited my family and enabled us to move our wedding forward

Thandeka had never worked before coming to W4AL.  She had 3 children who she had to send off to her fiance’s extended family in Richards Bay but she wanted to have them back living with her. Because of her positive attitude she was quickly employed by a local business and was able to earn enough to bring her children home.

Nelly worked as a domestic worker prior to doing W4AL. After the course she got a job at a local entertainment park. Whilst working there she was approached by a regular customer who was so impressed by her character and attitude that he asked her to work for his family and look after his children.
