INCORPORATING 'MIND BODY SOUL' IN OUR APPROACH TO CHILD DEVELOPMENT
"A human rights based approach is a conceptual framework for the process of human development based on international human rights standards directed to promoting and protecting human rights. It seeks to analyse inequalities which lie at the heart of development problems and redress discriminatory practices and unjust distributions of power that impede development progress." (UNICEF.org)
Project Playground recognizes the strives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for universal peace and has implemented it's mission into our daily work for a more equal society. Through Project Playground's holistic approach to child and youth development, several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals are addressed. The goals in colour are what we are currently contributing to within our organisation.
BUILDING SAFER COMMUNITIES TOGETHER
Project Playground's work is in line with the aims and goals of the Western Cape Government Safety Plan which was created and implemented to build safer communities.
"Reducing and preventing violence calls for a holistic life-course approach, which recognises and responds to the different needs of individuals as they progress through their life trajectories. Therefore, solutions are necessarily long termed aimed at building the collective resilience of our households and communities to crime and trauma."(Western Cape Government Safety Plan)
MIND BODY SOUL METHOD
Our method stems from a human rights based approach to empowering individuals.
