What is the CCW?

The Celebrating Children Workshop (CCW) provides specialised tools to practitioners working with children at risk, increasing their understanding of and capacity to best support the children in their care.


Why this workshop?

Almost 27 percent of the world’s population is under the age of fifteen. There are people in communities everywhere investing in them, believing in them and giving them skills for a better future.

The CCW equips local caregivers with a holistic framework to pass on what they know as well as train others to do the same. The training blends biblical, scientific, social and cultural perspectives in order to provide a holistic approach to caring for the well being of a child.
