IN AUGUST, the HCET received a visit by Rotarians from Frederick, Maryland in the United States participating in the Hope in South Africa programme. They were accompanied by four members of Living Community in the United States, which assists people with learning barriers to become self-sufficient.
Hope in South Africa arranged a meeting in Kimberley for FASD stakeholders aimed at developing a curriculum for FASD awareness in schools. The meeting was attended by Estelle Jacobs in her capacity as the Northern Cape representative responsible for improving community awareness of FASD. Other stakeholders present were the Western Cape Department of Education, the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research (FARR), and Fasfacts (spreading awareness of FASD in communities).
