CABSA Dreams Realised 2006

 CABSA realised two of its longheld dreams in February.


The first occasion was an opportunity to talk with and listen to young people. On the weekend of 17 – 19 February a group of 23 “church-youngsters” where invited to a camp in Strand, near Cape Town. They had the opportunity to talk openly about HIV and sexuality. For CABSA this was a very valuable learning experience. The youngsters were unanimous that they want relevant information from the church and their parents, rather than from the media and other sources.

Some pictures from this occasion:

At times the discussions became quite serious!

There was also opportunities for physical activity!



Refresher Meeting

Bringing together trained facilitators of the Churches Channels of Hope programme for two days was a first for CABSA. 25 facilitators from the Western Cape and even as far as George and Komaggas gathered for a Refresher Meeting on 21 and 22 February 2006. For many it was a wonderful opportunity to meet friends they have made during a Training course. Facilitators had the opportunity to share their successes and frustrations in implementing what they have learned from CABSA. Updated materials were provided and new developments in the Churches Channels of Hope programme were explained. The facilitators asked CABSA to follow this meeting up with future refresher meetings.

CABSA is working hard to establish a mentoring programme for all trained facilitators, to ensure that the full benefit of the programme is realised.
