Children’s Courtroom - a facilitated play-based mock-up court for children – exposing children to the rule of law, justice and role-playing roles in the judicial system while looking at the children’s rights. The Children’s Courtroom nurtures children’s own concepts of themselves and their rights as secured in South Africa’s Constitution. Through facilitated play and dialogue, the programme strengthens children’s rights by introducing all children to the core values of the Constitution, the rule of law, and different ways they can make their voices heard in a democratic society.

African Storytelling - Oral storytelling can improve children’s language fluency and help them grasp new concepts that underpin literacy and literature.
