What is the real situation?

Emotionally shattered children grow up to be dysfunctional, or worse still, destructive adults, they lead desperate adult lives, are poor parents, and put our already fragile communities at risk.

Anxiety, depression, grief, suicidal tendencies, behavioural disorders, learning difficulties and neglect are evidence of the inner catastrophe that these young people are experiencing, and with who Empilweni works.

Empilweni is primarily set up to provide professional and clinically supervised one-on-one counselling to troubled children and youth in Khayelitsha, Mfuleni, and their surrounds. It is special because it is the only project of its kind in the Khayelitsha and Mfuleni area that:

  1. Gives a series of clinically supervised individual therapy sessions to troubled children and young people
  2. Uses the home language of isiXhosa in the sessions and groups

Our team screen, assess and refer 600 children a year.

We take on 300 children and youth cases per year. Our service to our case clients includes: a series of individual counselling sessions over a three month period, visits to the home and schools of our clients, and working with their parents and teachers. Following their individual therapy our young clients are then placed in appropriate groups that run throughout the year at Empilweni.

Empilweni’s Goal Is

To improve the quality of life and witness the transformation of children, adolescents, and their families in our communities by providing culturally-appropriate, child-centered, and community-based mental health support and counselling.
