VISION GOAL

By the end of 1 year the young mothers should have developed self-reliance and become their own agents of change to address stigmatization in Fisantekraal. Furthermore, they should be empowered with parenting and life skills to be better parents to their children as they mentioned in the first meeting with me that all they want is to be the best parents to their children. They should be “healed” through counselling and support as they mentioned that as their need which Usapho has the capacity to address.

Scene 13 (4m 14s)

[Audio] By the end of 4 weeks the student should have gone through community entry and engaged with the young mothers to an extent that a group consisting of at least six girls is established. Successful By the end of 4 weeks the student should have developed a core steering group to ensure the sustainability of the relationship between Usapho and the young mothers. Partially successful, there are potential members for the core steering group but the group structure was not developed. By the end of 4 weeks the student and Usapho facilitators would have adapted and made changes to the teen parenting program. Due to time constraints it was not done. By the end of teen program, the mothers should have become self-reliant to an extent that they can partner with Usapho to mobilize more girls to work with and take a step to address the social injustice. One conscientization session was held with the mothers which appeared to not be efficient. Furthermore the facilitators were not enabled to conscientize therefore the objective was unsuccessful.

Objectives

1. Community entry Social relationships with young mothers

3. P rogram adaptations Usapho program

2. Core steering group Community assets

Scene 14 (5m 21s)

[Audio] The student should ensure that they communicate with Elize Lombard, the Usapho founder to find out about their current focus in the program so that their contribution can align with the focus of Usapho. Because even though there are posters in the offices, not all the aspects are currently being focussed on in the community. The student should immerse in the community and ask questions so that they understand the community better and be in the community. Usapho foundation should immerse in the community and develop IPR because that is important in gaining the trust of the community members. The student should ensure that the mothers are conscientized to address the social injustice while also speaking to their need, not only focus on addressing the social injustice but note their wellbeing as well. Develop group roles to avoid the mother's developing dependency on one of the members or the student but play a role in the development of their project and the group itself. The student should work closely with Abigail and ensure clear and consistent communication.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Know Usapho’s focus Develop an understanding of the program Immerse and ask questions Develop IPR Conscientization of the mothers Group roles Close working relationship
