“The respect and encouragement that the staff gives the children makes us feel safe and loved.”
– Lefika La Phodiso child
“We love coming here and finding someone to listen to us.”– Lefika La Phodiso children
Lefika La Phodiso’s eco structure is based on group work, however we are mindful that for some children, both their temperament, and past trauma requires therapy that is one-on-one. Lefika La Phodiso’s MD Rozanne Myburgh has spearheaded individual sessions and has recruited drama therapy interns from Drama for Life at Wits and counselling students from the South African College of Applied Psychology (SACAP). Lefika La Phodiso hopes to expand these one-on-one sessions, as funds permit, to meet the tremendous need in the community.
