Tourisme durable en Afrique du Sud à côté de votre séjour linguistique !

jeudi 9 septembre 2010

Pourquoi pas profiter d'un séjour linguistique pour mettre la main à la pâte et apporter votre collaboration à un projet social et humanitaire en Afrique du Sud ?

Voici un exemple de week-end proposé par notre école de langue partenaire à Cape Town :

Cette fois une partie des étudiants est allée peindre une garderie défavorisée et l'autre partie est allée peindre la maison d'une famille d'accueil qui s'occupe de recevoir les enfants maltraités en attendant leur placement dans un orphelinat.

Contribution fantastique, expérience unique, suivie de moments de partage entre le personnel de l'école et les étudiants. Aventure Linguistique adhère à cette idée !

 “A School that cares for others”
Helping Hands - Part 2
Another successful weekend with Cape Studies Helping Hands! This time we had 20 students on board from seven different countries and were accompanied by five members of Cape Studies’ staff. We take great joy and pride in our students’ positivity, sensitivity and interest in our social projects and community. We have also received great support and a warm welcome from the locals in Stanford (two hours from Cape Town).
We divided into 2 Groups:
Group One painted the jungle gym at “Buzzy Bees”, a day care centre for children in Stanford.
Group Two went to Corhi & Piet’s Safehouse in Gansbaai (30 minutes from Stanford) and painted the inside and outside walls as well as the house.
Corhi & Piet are a regular family, who provide a safe shelter for abused and abandoned children, who are waiting to be placed in an orphanage. Currently, they have four little boys, one of whom is autistic, and a teenage girl, aged 16.
When the work was completed and the students could see the results of their hard work and compassion, everyone was proud and satisfied with their efforts. Now, it was time to feed the hungry stomachs with grilled “Snoek”, caught fresh from the sea!
The students bid farewell to the family and children and headed home to wash up and prepare for the rugby game. We all met at the local pub and cheered for our teams over drinks. After the game, the group was treated to a BBQ with traditional food, “Pap” and “Boerewors”; salad and lamb. We celebrated the end of the day victoriously together with smiles and laughter.
On Sunday morning the students had a surprise awaiting them, breakfast served on a boat while cruising down the Stanford River. After a lazy boat ride, we headed back home but not before we stopped over for lunch at Hermanus to watch the whales as a final ending to our weekend.
