Anisah has settled in right from the start at Sinethemba Youth Development Center. She’s been put in charge of the Arts & Crafts program as she is extremely creative and talented when it comes to drawing. On her first day they all made cards for Zodwa, a fellow volunteer whose birthday was the next day. They’ve since made sheets with positive words on which will be painted onto sheets and used as wall decorations at the center.

Anisah is also assisting Mano with his Adolescent Development Program at Sunridge Primary school. The school has pinpointed various children who are at risk in their futures and the center is running workshops with them ranging in anger management, self image and other related subjects. It is to try and help these children before things run to far. A means of preventing instead of cure.

Anisah will also be participating in as many sporting activities as possible and hopefully when the center runs their holiday program she will be able to organize a few sports days for the youth at the center and the other school going children in the community.
