Caregivers and Community

The work done here at the Moya Centre rests on the shoulders of 38 Caregivers that reside in the community. The Moya Caregivers are engaged in different areas of the Lobamba Lomdzala community that work with Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVCYs). Our Caregivers have been trained over a period of 18 months in an extensive Child Protection and Intervention Skills course that ranged from being educated on the rights of the child, Positive Discipline at home, sexual reproductive health and family planning, to gender based violence and basic counseling skills.  Our 38 Caregiver are divided into three main groups that parallel the three branches of the ICDP program:

  • 14 Caregivers provide counseling, PSS services, and Restorative Justice directly to those in the communities.
  • 20 Caregivers lead Kids and Youth Clubs in the area to further ECD for those children that are not close to a preschool.
  • 4 Caregivers have been taught Permaculture principles and practices that focus on food security and wholesome living by Guba.

No matter their area of focus, all of our Caregivers have a number of children they personally look after through monitoring and mentoring. Caregivers independently assist the children under them and return to the Moya Centre once a month to confer with our staff on the condition of their mentored children and other community children who seek their support. Our Caregivers provide an invaluable service by being Moya’s eyes and ears in the community. They identify the most vulnerable children in our community, offer them support, and empower them with information and skills. It is their work, integration, and connection to the communities of Lobamba Lomdzala that make the Moya Centre what it is today
