Lalela After School Programme


Lalela provides educational arts for youth-at-risk to spark creative thinking and awaken an entrepreneurial spirit. Through their arts curriculum and critical messaging component, we ignite imagination and teach children how to map and manifest their dreams and goals, launching the possibility of a different future for themselves and their communities.

This is a weekly programme which runs during school term. Groups attend on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. The CFAE partners with the Lalela Project providing after-school art classes for learners from inner city public primary and high schools, as well as with schools who cater for learners with special educational needs (LSEN schools/groups). A week-long holiday workshop programme is structured for their participants in the June and December holidays. An exhibition, showcasing the work of the children takes place annually in November.
