A mutually enriching outreach project

  • CommunityHabonimShaliach
Habonim shaliach Danny Adeno Abebe recently initiated a programme in which Jewish youth go to Kliptown, Soweto, to offer their time and skills to youths there, and receive the same in return.

This project, called Your Neighbour Makwelwane, was launched this month when Habonim and Bnei Akiva youth and teachers, along with pupils from King David schools, joined the Israel Centre and Abebe at the Cultural Centre in Kliptown.

Their goal is to enrich the education of pupils in Kliptown one Sunday every month. The Jewish youth will tutor them in maths, science, English and other skills needed to pass matric exams. In return, the Kliptown youth will teach their Jewish counterparts Zulu, tribal dance and their local culture.

The idea behind this is to activate the idea of “Love thy neighbour as thyself” by closing the gap between cultures and sharing skills.  

Anyone wanting to get involved can contact Abebe on 064 984 0622.
