GOOD WORKS: Holiday program in Manenberg | Children's Radio Foundation

We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives

We hosted our annual holiday program in Manenberg with a dedicated team of youth reporters six to 16 years of age.

During the three-day workshop the group created a series of self portraits in various media, reflecting on the defining moments of 2013. Selecting a word of positive affirmation as a launchpad (‘inspired me,’ ‘confident me,’ ‘resilient me’), each of the participants created a dreamscape collage incorporating the people and places that hold significance in their lives. With glitter, feathers, paint, and photographs, they imagined their future selves. Along with a surprise origami lesson from Kyoko Morgan founder of Origami For Africa, the self portrait series provided perspective and an opportunity to imagine and reflect.

A big thank you to everyone at the Druiwevlei Community Centre in Manenberg and all who made this such a memorable experience. We look forward to new projects together in 2014!
