Personal Development for Community Service

Personal message

Our project’s established reading club for young learners has grown so much that we wish to train one of our facilitators in ECD. 

Your donation will assist in paying for the training of one of our facilitators and her assessment. 

Furthermore, she will work as a project intern for several hours a week in the various areas of our writing and reading project, further assisting her development and contributing to the struggling Helenvale community in which she lives. 

The proposed recipient, Anastacia Williams, is already assisting with our reading club, writes in our poetry group, and contributes to the project administration. 

The project wishes to help her and, after this piloting appointment, others like her, develop skills while contributing to social development and literacy skills.

We need to cover her fees, assessment payments, transport, and materials. 

Furthermore, we need to raise enough funds to establish a short term contract internship which will enable her to further develop her skills within the literacy activities offered by our project, the facilitation, and administration.

The first costs are for registration and fees, and the other expenses will need to be covered throughout 2022. Thus, our first deadline is mid-January, and the campaign will run through 2022.

Reaching this target means that Anastacia Williams will initiate a project element that we hope to become established, trained in Early Childhood Development and contributing to our growing reading club.

It will mean that she will be trained to develop young readers in an impoversihed area where reading does not take place enough; it will mean she will be introduced to new skills in a programme which we hope others will be able to follow ; it will mean that she will acquire the skills needed to open her own ECD centre if she ultimately wishes to. It implies development leading to employment.

Our project, the Bay Creative Writing Development Project, is run under the auspices of the SADRAT Institute and runs the Helenvale Poets and the Helenvale Reading Club BCWDP. 

Your contribution will help develop our activities and further the strength of our offerings.

Registration and fees: R10 000
Assessments, materials, transport, computer, library, snacks: R10000
Hourly paid practical learning in the project: R12 000 (this will supplement funds raised elsewhere)

Total: R32000

Our NPO is audited and has strict financial controls.

Southern Africa Development, Research and Training Institute

Southern Africa Development, Research and Training Institute Logo

The Institute’s greatest strength is its ability to design and implement high impact programmes. With a holistic approach, complex problems are analysed and programmes are designed by integrating and synthesising the learning gained over decades by specialists with ‘hands-on’ experience. These programmes take into account historical successes and failures, the practicalities of current realities, and the future direction needed for success.  

To date, the Institute has provided services in the following areas: poverty alleviation strategies, community facilitation and participation processes including memory and trauma healing, social compact processes, heritage policy development, skills development strategies, integrated youth development programmes, conflict management and violence prevention, integration of arts, culture and sports into social development programmes and integrated HIV/Aids programmes.  A detailed list of projects can be found on our website.
