Our inspirational song says it all: "This little Chic will grow, grow to be a rooster, this little Chic will grow, grow to be a hen ..”

After some time of thorough planning our little Chic managed to leap to one of its milestones. We hosted a successful workshop on 15 September that was attended by 14 representatives from 6 different churches (1 from Mpumalanga, 3 from Gauteng and 2 from Limpopo). The aim was to share the programme’s vision and to interest churches in starting pilot phase Chics programmes in their communities. The workshop was a big step towards our dream of propelling Chics to fly to the whole Southern Africa to create and consolidate meaningful relationships for the quality of life of children.

The representatives showed a lot of interest in our programme and we are looking forward to work with them.

We would like to acknowledge and appreciate churches that sent us representatives: URCSA Orange Farm, URCSA Namakgale, URCSA Mamelodi Phahameng, URCSA Indermark/ Hlatsane, DRC Halweghuis and the Anglican Parish of White River. We are also thankful towards our guest speaker Rev. Francois Smit who spoke to us about "The church as God's hands and feet into the community". Our most high regards to God for His sufficient grace and love.

To God be the glory!!!!

The Particular Impact Quality of Life Assessment Instrument is a tool that measures the particular impact of a specific intervention and/or satisfier on the quality of life of one or more household members. Dependable tools could assist in verifying the claim so often made by service and product providers, as well as welfare programmes, that their interventions improve the quality of life of poor households.
