Through years of integration work the POWER-CHILD CAMPUS became an essential element of the Mfuleni township community. The campus is supporting and counseling children and adults in critical situations.
According to the guidelines and recommendations of the South African Social Department, the responsible board in Cape Town and the provincial government, the campus project offers help to neglected and abused children and their families.
As a contact point for children, adolescents and mothers, POWER-CHILD CAMPUS provides psychosocial services for continuity and stability for an everyday life, on a regular basis.
Because of the well trained experts of the campus, which are also skilled in handling HIV/Aids invalids, children find sympathy, security and support. Social workers, police associates or members of the community take physical, sexually and emotional abused children to the POWER-CHILD CAMPUS. The CAMPUS staff immediately arranges a meeting, to accommodate the shocked boys and girls temporarily in selected and skilled families until their domestic situation is clarified.
This occurs in close collaboration with physicians, psychologists and social workers. To guarantee the safeness and well-being of each child, our professional skilled staff members and co-workers obey a special developed process, whereupon “foster families” will be attended, supported and surveyed on a regular basis.
