South Africa: Deputy Minister tells Youth to Emulate the Class of 1976
The Principal of the Kathorus campus, Ms Helen Ntlatleng, opened the gathering and spoke of the huge support the college was getting from government and the business community. She spoke highly of the technologically advanced equipment and vehicles that have been donated to the college in order to enable students to gain skills. She appealed, though, for the Deputy Minister and other government leaders in attendance, to help them eradicate substance abuse at the college, as students easily access such substances from many taverns in the vicinity of the college. Deputy Minister Makwetla told the students that, although society has a responsibility to take of care them, the youth also has a responsibility to contribute to the advancement of the country. He gave an example of the youth of 1976, who took it upon themselves to change their immediate conditions at schools, and ultimately led the bigger struggle to change the whole society. “We must not give birth to a generation that cares only about itself,” he said. He paid tribute to Oliver Reginald Tambo for instilling in the youth of that era, a respect for women and children rights, rights for people living with disabilities and other human rights at a time when many thought those were secondary issues.

South Africa: Minister Masutha brings Early Christmas to Soweto Granny
Christmas came early for Ms Selina Mafisa, a pensioner from Central West Jabavu in Soweto when Minister Michael Masutha, together with Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane handed over her refurbished home on 22 December 2017. Selina Mafisa was crammed into a temporary structure at the back of her Phiri Street home for more than a year. She shared that space with seventeen other family members after an electrical fire gutted her house. Eight parolees gave back meaningfully through labour in the refurbishment of Mafisa’s home which took three weeks. Fulufulu Trading and Projects partnered with Community Corrections offices in Gauteng during recent months where their “Project Green” helped destitute families in and around Soweto. The project aims to restore thirty homes for local families before the end of 2019. Eight houses have already been restored and handed over.

South Africa: Gauteng Social Workers Equipped on Sexual Offender Treatment Programme
The Directorate Social Work Services held a four-day work session on the Sexual Offender Treatment Programme (SOTP) at Kgoši Mampuru II in the week of 31 January to 2 February. It was attended by 41 social workers from the Gauteng region. The aim of the programme is to reduce the likelihood of re-offending by teaching offenders to control a chain of behaviour that lead to sexual offences. The new programme was developed based on scientific research done at 18 correctional centres in 2016. Director Social Work Services Dorothy Makhuza said it was necessary to review the existing sexual offender treatment programme and the department subsequently commissioned research. “The programme is designed to make an impact on sexual offenders and encourage behaviour change due to knowledge and therapy offered by social workers,” she said.
