In 2010, the programme saw a change in the management structure as the director left and a new one was established. The team continue to provide a comprehensive programme directly to a range of schools in the Cape Town area, impacting on the lives of over 12,000 young people a year. In addition the team have continued to train hundreds of educators, bringing them up to over 400 support staff and teachers trained per year, who will use the programme materials in a number of schools, and other programmes aimed at training school teaching staff. The programme is now replicated in a number of other provinces and other African nations.
New programmes continue to be developed, and requests have been received for new programmes accross a range of age groups. Think Twice has a vision to increase the numbers of young people who are impacted through the programmes. To this end, there is a strategy to train other organisations to facilitate the programmes. In 2010 many more school teaching staff were trained and this continues to be a priority in 2011.
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
To develop the current programmes in partnership with other NGO’s and schools. CRY has supported this project for a number of years. CRY’s commitment is relatively small and this will continue. However without CRY’s support the work would be significantly inhibited and efforts will be made to increase the funding through grant applications.
