What Girls and Boys Town does for vulnerable children
In recent weeks, violence in schools has dominated news headlines.
From the recent viral video of learner beating up a bus driver, last week we heard of how a teacher was stabbed to death at a school in Zeerust in the North West allegedly by a pupil.
And in Eldorado Park Secondary School a 15-year-old male pupil was arrested for pointing a toy gun at a teacher.
Callers on the Breakfast Show with Bongani Bingwa suggested that the Girls and Boys Town could be part of the solution to address the issue of school violence.
CEO of Girls and Boys Town Lee Loynes says it is their 60th anniversary of operating and working and caring for vulnerable children.
We currently work with children around the country. We have residential healing and therapeutic centres around the country for children that are unsafe and vulnerable in their community.Lee Loynes, CEO of Girls and Boys Town
