“From A Shack to a Tent for Ten


 Again when the xenophobic crisis emerged, the shock was not only traumatic and quite scary but our first thoughts were about the number of little ones involved, imagine their fear, when seeing their daddy dying tragically, in front of them, in their shack called “Home”.  As a team we immediately offered our assistance to the locals

                                                                

 Our  ward Councilors has call me to assist  with children in the camp

So we assist the  church  where we began to do   2 meals  daily  and doing  the codedrnashion  with the mothers and children in the camp

The  detment of  Social   Development   was all call in to assist in the camp

Every came to the  assist from all over the  places

                                                                


 The expression on those little faces can never be described. Thereafter, with the help of Corporate, Private Sector, Schools and Churches we continued to clothe                       

During this time we were interviewed by National and International Press, Media and Television and appeared on many channels where our plea for assistance for the children was quite desperate.

                                                                 

How can you help? In any way, being it clothing, food blankets, and nappies… the list is endless.  Whether your contribution be it monetary or in product remember:

                                                                  

 “A Child is just a Child” – each and every one needs your care and assistance right now.  We are still assisting the Xenophobians, by referrals, as well as placing them into shelters.  The crisis in Johannesburg city regarding the Xenophobians has resulted in us liaising with Government departments to obtain a building of which they can be sheltered.  This is an on-going process that will be a long-term assistance

 
                                                                                                  


We believes that protecting children and creating a safe and secure environment is everybody’s responsibility..

We urges everyone to wear the Green Ribbon during Child Protection Week and after  to show support for promotion of the rights, care and protection of our children.

  Protect a child.

  The Green refers to life and growth.

  Let’s conserve our children, give them hope.

  By wearing the Green Ribbon it shows that you care and support.

  Stand up, be committed and protect a child.

  The Green Ribbon lets victims and survivors know that we are united in their support.

  It emphasizes the importance of partnerships to tackle child abuse, neglect and exploitation.

  Wearing the Green Ribbon is an ongoing activity to show a person’s commitment for the protection of children and will be marketed strongly during the Child Protection Week .and after 

         Government cannot eliminate the scourge on its own and a multi-sector response is required to address and end child abuse, neglect and exploitation.

  • Working Together to Stop Child Neglect.
  • Working Together to Stop Child Exploitation.
  • Working Together to Promote the Importance of ECD.

Working Together to Report Child Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation

The rights of children with disabilities: The duty to protect, respect, promote and fulfill”.

According to this Act, prevention programmes are provided to families with children in order to strengthen and build their capacity and self reliance to address problems that may or are bound to occur in the family environment which, if not attended to, may lead to statutory intervention. Early intervention programmes, on the other hand, are provided to families where children are identified as being vulnerable to or at risk of harm or removal into alternative care. Practitioners and policy makers at all levels of governance should understand their obligations within the legal policy context in order to ensure effective, replicable and sustainable Prevention and Early Intervention Programmes (PEIP).

Chubby Chums need you help !!!

Or what about a treat for the little once. Some non – perishable foods , or even baby essentials

___________________________________________________________________

FLUFFY TOY THERAPY

In the fluffy toy therapy there are multiple story telling sessions this equips you to understand the trauma that the child has been through and you develop a relationship between you and the child.

Your involvement with the child in telling a story by using animals or fluffy items

A teddy bear seems to be the child’s best way communicating, play therapy with fluffy toy’s are just as important as it makes the child relaxed and very comfortable in the surrounding areas. In my years of experience with the children with the fluffy toys we give the fluffy toy a name we monitor all views body movement with the fluffy toy’s as the child is playing with the toy the child will reveal what the bad person is doing, with the context of the present application with the fluffy toy’s the therapy has a qualitative method that can be used.

These session’s you cannot put a time limit on them, you must think of the best interest of the child at all times.

You must be very careful to not terminate the toy therapy very quickly cos it can have both a positive and negative effect on the child. This may differ from child to child depending on the circumstances of the traumatized child.

Therefore make sure the room that you doing the fluffy toy therapy in is very child friendly, by having a lot of fluffy toys available for children to play in when you are done with the fluffy toy therapy make sure you let the child choose his/her own fluffy toy to take with them.

When I enter a playroom with a child you must come down to a child level so in other words you must be like a child, that will make them feel more comfortable in those surroundings.

Never force a child to play, as it will come naturally to the child.

The more involved you get, the more they will open up this enables the child to solve their own problem’s depending on the age of said child.

You must always listen to the child as well as take lot’s of notes as well as it is vital to acknowledge and observe the child.

You will see after this fluffy toy therapy. That the child will then leave with the feeling that you still care and love them you will see the child will want to come back for more therapy and the sessions will be longer and longer.

 The children feel safe when they have a fluffy toy in front of them, being in child protection it really has opened my eyes on how a child bonds with a fluffy toy, whether it be in court, play room, or even outside, the little one clings to the toy, loves it, respects it, and feels comforted by it.

New Measures to be taken for transformation

of Homes, Centres, Shelters, Crches into

Children’s Youth Care Centres

within the next four years

chubby chums, the primrose-based children’s protection organization, wishes to publicise changes affecting legislation controlling ngo’s homes and shelters.

according to  martin barnard, one of the founders of chubby chums, the government’s legal requirements have been amended effective april 1, 2010 and people organizations are advised to check with the department of social development in pretoria to ensure that their paperwork is valid and up- to date. the primary documents needed by an organization are:

         Non-profit organization certificate (fund-raising number),

          which empowers an organization to raise funds.

         Section 21 certificate of registration, which gives a body the status of a non-governmental organization, and allows the project to be expanded to other locations.

         Section 18a tax exemption certificate.  This bestows the status of a public benefit organization.

          Certificate of acceptability, which permits cooking and feeding people on the premises.

         Child Care Act Section30 certificate, which states the gender and age of children who may be cared for.

         A certificate from the Department of Welfare and population, stipulating the number of children who may be housed by any organization.  www.dsd.gov.za

         The Department of Social Development’s website is  .  www.dsd.gov.za

 and the NPO division will be able to assist with any enquiries on  012 312/7500.

 Likewise, companies and individuals wishing to verify the validity of any organization to whom they wish to make donations can check the status on this website.

Barnard can also assist with enquiries on 011/023/8427.

Chubby Chums acts as a facilitator for NGO’s in the Gauteng area upon referral from the Department of Social Development, Locally, Provincial and Nationally, based on current norms, standards and protocols.

 

YOU  NEED  YOU TO NOW WHAT IS IN THE CHILDREN ACT

YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS 

YOU NEED TO KNOW THE CHILD JUSTICE ACT 

 

 

 

Will you help a child in need

In our  beautifully  country  we here far too many horror stories of child been abuse and neglect  at chubby chums homes serves to catch some of these children and we do our very best to try and heal the hurt and  allow the children to  develop their potential

 

All the children need to caught  its every child’s right to be love and every adult’s privilege to care for them  to do this each and every responsible adult, must make a concerted effort we can never care for all these children  without the help of caring people in the community .

As a responsible caring adult ‘ catch a child to day  pay attention and act when it is necessary so please help us to help other children that are not so fortunate      

 

We have  satellite homes  scattered across the country  like  Pretoria   Hammenskraal, Tembisa ,Johannesburg ,Soweto ,Ennerdale , Bertmas, Malvern . Kensington / Malvern ,  Wichwood , Germiston , Katlehong, Valorous , Alberton , Midrand , Far East Rand ,Nigel Germiston, Primrose, East Cape

 

Chubby chums compliance and supports all governments endeavours to achieve a society where poverty, all kinds of abuse, neglect and exploitation will not allowed to destroy the of our precious children 

 


Working collectively to bringten the light in and around every child

Has been very successful in the healing of child survivors

The establishment of culture of the respect for all children’s rights as outlined in south African bill of rights and constitution is essential to the continued wellbeing of our communities and the future stability of our country

Networking with all stakeholders within the field of child protection  to combat violence against children and youth

 

Child participation  ensure children ‘s voices are heard in all our projects

The best interest of the child  this principal governs all our work in the children act .

We empowers both children and adults , thereby preventing child abuse and ensuring early

intervention in case of child abuse and neglect

 

 

The home is like a  Safe House to us in our work that  started as an after-hours service for abused and abandoned children. With traditional organizations closed at night and during weekends, many traumatised children were in the unfortunate position of having to stay at police stations until the welfare agencies opened their doors for office hours. This constituted secondary traumatisation for the child

 

 

We continue to work in  partnership with other Organizations to improve child protection services. We are gratified by our positive relationships with the Gauteng Departments of Health & Social Development, Department of Education,& Criminal Justice System including the SA Police Service and our other  organizations:  This gives us  great  opportunities   to our vision of ‘working collectively to brighten the light in and around every child’ and we look forward to a time when children’s rights are honoured by all in Gauteng.
