South Africa success stories-Tshepo children Festival

#southafrica#childhealth#focusonpatients-gsk##blog08

Dear friends/colleagues and fello pulsars,

It’s been a while I am posting my blog; that certainly means it was real busy time I had on ground.

As the subject speaks itself , Friday we have concluded end of year children festival-called Tshepo festival.


  
  
From last couple of weeks we were feeling heat on the ground and  sweating lot in 45 degrees of hot Africa during planking of this big event where approx 2000 children from community were expected; however looking at the happiness in eyes of those children, friday I felt very cool. Sametime my heart missed a beat when I saw most of those children with bare foot💔


  
  


  
  

Few EYDC (children health center) stakeholders were invited and with volunteers they helped community to understand various diseases like HIV, TB, child malnutrition etc…

First time in the history of Munsieville, cricket sport has been introduced to the children of the Mayebuye school. The coaching was going from last couple of months and on Tshepo festival, we had official cricket game between Tigers XI and Cheetahs XI. In these teams, There were feel of AB deviliers, laras, sachins, gayles, jimmys, dhonis, murlis, clarkies etc.. 

  
  

  


  
    CRICKET IS HERE TO STAY IN MUNSIEVILLE- sustainability has been ticked, embed and grow has already been checked…you will be able to see kids playing cricket on the streets in the morning 7 o clock at Mayebuye area… Is this what you called happiness??  I guess so…
