Isibindi: Creating Circles of Care

May 30, 2018

This one-day CYCAA pre-conference workshop led by two of the original South African development team, will introduce participants to the unique and successful Isibindi model through lecture, videos and large and small group activities.

Participants will be welcome to ask questions and engage with the presenters. This workshop will resonate with anyone interested in community development and community response to social catastrophes, offering a rarely seen perspective on the strengths of children, as child-led households is not a common term in the first world.

If you work with children in early childhood, schools or community programming, this workshop offers a unique perspective on the capacity of children when supported by relationships with trained adults. If you are an anthropologist, social worker, sociologist, psychologist, nurse or interested community, this workshop offers you a rare opportunity to look at what happens when we do things differently.

About the presenters:

Merle Allsopp is a child and youth care worker with 35 years experience in the sector. Throughout her career she has championed the development of South African Child and Youth Care.

Zeni Thumbadoo is currently championing the recognition of child and youth care work through the national scale up of the Isibindi model.
