On Mondays and Thursdays the team coach life skills in Macassar between 15:30 and 17:00.
On Mondays, a group of around 10 girls play Netball and receive instruction in key skills that equip them for life in the workplace, at home and as a member of their community. These girls have recently (Sept 2014) been given the opportunity to come to Dance classes on Thursdays afternoons to learn new skills with Gail, our Dance Instructor.
On Thursdays, around 20 boys receive rugby coaching as part of their life skills program. This was the first project that we began in Macassar and has had a number of success stories. One of the boys, learnt essential skills, which helped him come off drugs and he now has found employment in the I.T. industry.
In August 2014, we launched mentoring sessions for the boys and girls to provide further support for these children and help them with any difficulties they may be having at home, in school or around the community. The boys have mentoring sessions on Mondays and the girls on Thursdays.
