Khulisa Gavan Mbeki Success Story

On February 2017, 3 young men were referred by Evander Court with the case of having had stolen Cell phones at School. The incident happened in the year 2016, the last year of their high school studies .They all completed their Matric, 2 of them were unemployed and did not further their education due to lack of funds and the other one is studying Mechanical Engineering at G.S College in Evander. They all did not have a valid reason why they stole cell phone at the school.
They were enrolled in the Breakthrough adult diversion life-skills Program at Khulisa-Secunda. The 2 young men who were unemployed and did not have a chance to further their studies were hopeless; they saw their future as being with any hope or meaning. They however completed the Breakthrough adult diversion program. They loved attending the sessions as they were gaining a lot of Knowledge from the Program. Their journey with Secunda- Khulisa was so interesting because it resulted in them regaining hope and as well as meaning for their lives. They started to have positive personal goals and lovely vision for their future.
After Completing the Program, Secunda- Khulisa had an opportunity to pilot a Research Program jointly with University of Pretoria. The 2 young men took part in the said research project. They had an opportunity to be selected in the advisory committee for the said research project. They now spear heading the project as committee members. Their confidence had improved because they now have a life purpose and mission to be productive members of the community. The Project would be rolled out for 5 years in Govan -Mbeki, Secunda.
On The 27th of March 2017 Govan Mbeki had a Cooperate event for the launch of the Global Mentorship Movement where Director Lesley Ann Van Zelm and PJ Powers the singer and ambassador of the movement were Present. The 2 young Men were present during the event to present about the change they received through Secunda- Khulisa and to thank Secunda -Khulisa for the Positive transformation that happened in their lives. They expressed that their dignity was restored, Self-esteem developed and they were able improve their assertive skills through the lesson they learnt in our Breakthrough program.
