AOL hosts kids’ fun event
20 April 2012 | PRIYA RANCHOD
The camp was organised by the foundation, an international education and humanitarian non-governmental organisation. AOL in conjunction with its sister organisation the International Association for Human Values has been active in Soweto for over seven years.
It runs the Youth Village project, which focuses on empowering and enabling young people and the community of Soweto.
The camp includes the ART Excel (All Round Training in Excellence) programme for children 8-12 years old and YES (Youth Empowerment Seminar) programme for teenagers 13-18 years as well as career counselling, motivational speakers, creative art and dance workshops.
Children also learned a breathing process called Sudarshan Kriya which they use daily to focus and concentrate on their school work, studies and any other activities they do.
‘‘Many of the children who attended the course were sponsored by the Youth Village project,’’ AOL teacher and Youth Village project co-ordinator Aneshree Naidoo said.
Naidoo said that apart from the Youth Camp, the Youth Village project has also implemented a feeding scheme that provides meals to over 120 children daily.
