We target young people exposed to repeat stressful events, who lack supportive adults, feel negatively about themselves and adopt challenging behaviour patterns, reducing life chances. Our surf therapy programme assists participants to develop positive self-identities, adopt pro-social behaviour patterns, emotional stability, and autonomy. The weekly surf therapy sessions teach participants key skills, including listen to each other, share with each other, respect each others feelings, meditate and breathing, identify strengths, learn to calm down, learn how to channel energy, positive decision making, and identify how to apply skills in real life.   more >

One of these essential factors is having a positive father / male -figure in their lives who plays a critical part in promoting a healthy outlook of self, provides a knowledge base of how - as far as possible - how he ought to behave, teach the difference between right and wrong and advising on how to best handle the twists and turns as he transforms to play the biggest role in his life; being the man expected to protect & provide for himself, family and community   more >
