This is Esethu Mehlo, a student teacher from CPUT. I was asked to volunteer on one on one program that took place in Cape Town stadium. I just want to give a little reflection.
I found the program very interesting, the children get to socialise and enjoy. It was not only to socialise but also to learn to trust the person who's guiding the child/person and walking around with them (the volunteer) that means whoever can come for help, they can learn to trust the person.
I also learnt that the people who seemed to be not normal or disabled, have disorders whichever way you can put it, they actually very important and we need to recognise that. They need support and encouragement that they are the part of the community.
Many thanks for inviting me and be the part of that program
