Africa is a continent that has a mystical draw on most everyone, yet at the same time is also a continent
that is suffering from poverty, unemployment, disease, as well as cultural and tribal disputes
with large numbers of orphans and street children as a direct result.
Since 2004 Covenant Ministries through the
Kidsworld Street Kids Centres, has been
actively involved in caring, feeding, clothing
and schooling street children in Africa.
Our primary goal however is to not only meet these children’s basic needs,
but to also be pro-actively involved in giving them
– a real HOPE and a real FUTURE -
… by helping them discover their uniqueness and creative abilities,
… by inspiring them to develop their very own special abilities,
that are waiting to be released!
By introducing a new way of thinking and approach to education!
Education has been based on collecting and memorizing information, with the prime objective of preparing children to know enough to be able to get employment.
Of course knowledge is important, yet without application, resourcefulness and personal input, precious time and abilities are being wasted in the lives of so many children.
We are therefore looking at bringing creativity and the application of information into schooling, so as to prepare children not to be looking for employment, … but to create employment!
Giving them – a real HOPE and a real FUTURE -
Although we are all creative, creativity goes beyond thinking or just producing a work
of art, and even goes beyond expressing who you are, in what you wear, in what you
do, and in particular in what you do to and for others.
It is therefore not possible to have a set syllabus, or even to have a set structure,
… it is personal!
Creativity can therefore not be pre-structured but needs to be individually experienced
and personally expressed …
The ‘Creative’ training will be presented in open workshops, and is primarily aimed at
those involved in teaching and training, exposing them to a free thinking environment
without limitations … aimed at active learning, application and real results!
While this process is not new, what makes it unique is the realization of man’s creative
ability, which has been lying dormant in most of our lives, as it has not been considered
as real or important, but as special to only a few … an assumption that is proved to be
inaccurate by merely observing a child at play.
It is in fact an essential part of man’s existence and development!
Join us by becoming personally involved, the next generation needs your input,
even if you have not recognised those special, creative abilities in yourself
… they are there, waiting to be released, developed and shared!
