Life changing experience for JCP-student
One of the students, Nikita van Zyl, did her fieldwork for her Community-Based Project Module at a camp of the Eleos non-profit organisation. The camp, where she was a group leader, was held for children who come out of exceptionally difficult home environments and the object of the camp was to express how they feel, to develop dreams and goals and to come to conclusions on how they will rise out of their circumstances and make their dreams a reality. She reported: "This was a life changing experience. I obtained knowledge in counselling, I connected with children and had a peek into their lives and their struggles and I learned that I have a lot to be grateful for and that I have so much to give."
Please refer to her report in the form of a blog.
