KidzWellness Training at Mseleni Children’s Home

Mseleni KW Group photo with HombisaMseleni is in FAR northern KwaZulu Natal, in the beautiful area of Umhlabuyalingana. Owing to the high level of poverty there are many children in need. Lulisandla Kumntwana is the community arm of the Mseleni Children’s home.

Hombisa Ntsikanye, trained 16 staff of the Lulisandla Kumtwana FBO on the 10 topics of KidzWellness. This aim of the training is to equip community workers to effectively engage with children (4 – 11 years) on a variety of topics such as I Am Special or Healthy Eating. There is such a need for intentional and effective ways to communicate with children, and to allow children to communicate with adults. The KidzWellness training provides tools and skills to do just that. This training also capacitates those who work with children to identify Developmental Milestone delays, and ways to assist in overcoming them.

In Hombisa’s words “What an adventure! It was great to work with people who are so enthusiastic about children.”
