Who Benefits from Our Services?

WSUC offers a range of activities to the children including education, recreation, social skills and self development. Prevocational activities and school placement services are also provided with requsite assistance with uniforms and shoes.

WSUC aims to increase children's awareness in the areas of child rights and the environment, thereby enabling the children to develop a sense of community participation and personal responsibility.

Kankusta Duo WSUC believes that parents and communities are integral to the programme and thus undertakes to provide a variety of outreach programmes to enhance a nurturing environment for children.

"WSUC is more than parents."

"If it weren't for WSUC, my big son could not go through High School. He passed 5 subjects and is working. I am proud of him and thankful for the help from rags to riches."

"WSUC is a place to go to share your problems, they teach us how to stretch what we have and how to understand and deal with our children.
