Community Outreach and "Edutainment"
Gift of the Givers Careline adopts a two pronged approach in addressing psycho-social issues. Whilst it supports individuals, couples and groups through counselling it strongly advocates education and awareness on relevant issues that directly impact on society. With knowledge and information individuals are more aware and are in a position to make informed decisions.
Often people are not aware of their rights and about the resources available. This arouses feelings of despondency, isolation and helplessness. Attending seminars and presentations about issues that affect them directly or indirectly can be liberating and empowering.
When reaching out to the community one has to find creative ways to lure them. Often these events have an entertainment appeal such as book launches, documentary viewings, guest presentations and the use of drama, hence “Edutainment”.
GOTG Careline hosts a number of these community events annually in the hope that prevalent issues are are brought under the spotlight.
