The festivities kicked off at 9 am at the Monwabisi Park Container Facility in C-Section. Events included Football & Netball Tournaments, Traditional Dances, Children’s indigenous games, Reading & Storytelling activities and Community Dialogues around life and health issues.
Story telling - thanks to Nal'ibali facilitators - at the Toy Bus was followed by eating time and party packs.
Open dialogues took place with parents, community leaders and teenagers talking about what perpetrates gender based violence.
We had a wonderful day together celebrating the richness of our cultures and diversity of the people who live in Khayelitsha. Thank you to all our partners and staff who worked so hard behind the scenes to make this a memorable and fun-filled day.
