Lessons Learnt
  • There is value in a childrens workforce at
    community level
  • A role exists for a skilled employed worker at a
    community level at EFT level 4 or more to prevent
    children from coming into the system
  • - an accountable workforce
  • - cost saving
  • Need for effective MDTs for all service
    providers especially Social Workers and CYCW to
    working effectively together in a structured way
    while keeping each other accountable

20
  • Deploying CYCW in communities of origin is
    clever
  • Cost effective
  • Build skills and grows the economy of communities
  • Allows CYCW to work flexi hours
  • Educates a womens workforce
  • Brings about systemic change
  • The Isibindi response while holding onto its
    core replication principles must be responsive to
    the individual needs and nuances of communities

21
  • Skilled Isibindi workers are able to build on
    their core knowledge
  • The Isibindi programme is essentially a family
    preservation programme

22
  • To walk away with a big heart so that I can be
    patient to all the stories of my siblings, also
    let them know that Isibindi is our home.
  • (Participant in the YWEP, March 2012)
