It’s an afternoon program, we are open from 2-7 pm on weekdays. We provide help in homework, and different non formal learning opportunities. The volunteers organize workshops like dancing, games, crafting etc. It requires lots of background knowledge about culture, communication, which we’ll teach you, if you choose to participate in the programme. Most of the children are in their primary school years, living in the local segregates, where we also work with the local community (street social work).
