Eye For Others is busy setting up an agricultural education program. On the other site of the community center there’s a large piece of land of approximately 10 hectares. A barn is built on this piece of ground and a house is made habitable. Two people are going to live in the house to ensure the security of the agricultural area. In addition, a small shop is being built where clothing and vegetables are sold.

A meal for our friends.

EyeForOthersAdmin Article, video tagged

The roles were reversed once: normally the staff of the Court Classique suite hotel serves the people of Eye For Others. This night it was different. The Dutch have prepared a typical Dutch meal for the hotel staff to say thanks. It took us quite some effort to explain what typical Dutch stew and meatball was, but our African friends loved the food. We hope to be able to work together a lot in the future.

Stage in Zuid-Afrika: Unieke ervaring…

EyeForOthersAdmin Article, News item, video tagged ,

Eye For Others faciliteert een aantal stageplekken in Zuid Afrika. Een initiatief van Ton van de Smit, projectleider van Eye For Others, is om een weekend te organiseren waarbij jongeren uit de gemeenschap van Ritchie in contact komen met stagiaires uit Nederland. Het weekend staat bol van sport, spel, theater en muziek, maar het meest unieke is dat de studenten in stilte met elkaar moeten praten van hart tot hart en naar elkaar moeten luisteren. Wat er dan ontstaat tussen jongeren uit verschillende landen en culturen is met geen pen te beschrijven. Grenzen vervagen, vriendschappen voor het leven. Touch People, touch hearts is niet voor niets ons motto. Dit kan je nooit op school leren, maar moet je ervaren.

Training weekend is going on right now.

EyeForOthersAdmin Article, News item, Preparing projects tagged ,

‘Back to basics’ was the sentiment when we walked in the camp. No telephone, no electricity, no gas and barely any running water. Gather some wood, start a campfire and cook on it. It didn’t spoil the fun though. We had a nice meal in the evening and after that, the group enthusiastically started the training weekend. See the first video below.
