The programme offered by Sukuma Sakhe Development is multi-faceted in nature, targeting youth at risk, youth in conflict with the law, and children living on the street. Attending to the needs of these youth at a young age will assist them in the short- and long- term, empowering them and giving them hope. Education; youth skills development; a diversion programme for youth in conflict with the law; treatment and counselling; and support are offered in SSD’s programme.
The counselling offered employs Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Furthermore, the centre provides breakfast, lunch and snacks for the programme’s participants, as well as a sport for boys, and a sport for girls.
