You can help children from disadvantaged communities ride the wave of change 

Breadline Africa is working with Waves for Change to develop and expand a drop-in centre on Monwabisi Beach for children from the nearby township of Khayelitsha, offering surf therapy and a safe space to build resilience, alleviate trauma and provide hope.

Waves for change

 

Since July 2012, Waves for Change has used surfing to alleviate the symptoms of trauma in young people and currently reaches more than 160 children each week. The centre is currently made up of two 12-metre and one 6-metre shipping container. These are used for counselling, storage and cooking.

Recently, Objek Architects approached Waves for Change to explore a new development for the site, which would improve the current design and provide additional space for after-school/homework activities. The team at Objek has kindly undertaken the design of a new and improved drop-in centre, including a new converted 6-metre and 12-metre container placed on top of the existing structure, free of charge. Breadline Africa, as a local expert in the implementation of infrastructure projects, was approached to help to make this dream a reality.
