New Dawn – giving hope and purpose to learners
New Dawn is based in Kewtown. The project aims to motivate children to have a sense of purpose in life. It sets solid structures to break the cycle of drug abuse, violence and unemployment. The project aims to keep the kids motivated and focused as they move through the various stages of growing up and becoming adults. New Dawn has a five-year action plan, which includes:
- Morning feeds for children before school
- Sponsoring teenage school leaders to go on training camps
- Sponsoring unemployed mothers and young adults for crèche and aftercare training
- A teen programme
- Setting up a crèche and playschool
Catalyst staff and friends donated beautiful Santa Shoeboxes to the children at New Dawn for their annual party. In addtion to the Santa Shoeboxes we supplied them with many party treats to complete their party. A great time was had by all.
