Pozisa’s club is the Inkwenkwezi Club. This club captain’s club is located in Crossroads – Dr Nelson Mandela Secondary school.
The name of the group was derived from a Xhosa word inkwenkwezi, that when translated to English means a star. I named the program inkwenkwezi because in my eyes all the grade 9 learners I will be facilitating are like stars to me. One of the most significant things about a star is that when it still young it is deem. However, when it has fully grown it becomes strong and provides more light.
The aim of this club is to reach out to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and give them hope. It is to help them see the bigger picture. The club also aims to rekindle the youngsters to desire to dream big. Even though the aim is primarily to up skill them in terms of ICT skills, we will find ways to make the project to have life. That means the purpose of the club is to share who I am with the kids.
Chante’s club is the Kika Club. This club captain’s club is located in Khayelitsha- Uxlolo Secondary High School. The word Kika can be derived from the urban dictionary meaning “cool”, “awesome” or “kickass”. This club aims to enable students with ICT skills to be used in their daily lives for their benefit. At the end Chante believes the young ladies would have a sense of pride and feeling of “awesomeness” for having the ability to do things they never thought they would. The Kika Club will be beyond learning, it will entail cool and enjoyable times.
