Vuyolwethu Mbala, Oliver Heers and Percy Van Rooyen were attending day care programme at Epilepsy SA-Kynsna. Due to the fact that they are young adults, it was impossible for Epilepsy SA to allow them sharing a ‘’home’’ with mostly older people, as it will lead to clashes between the generations. Epilepsy SA couldn’t risk exposing them to handling pressure and stress which might be put on them.
Epilepsy SA couldn’t further accommodate day workers due to the lack of funding and SLF youth were then assessed at Knysna APD for Werkswinkel workshop. They are now enjoying themselves there doing woodwork and knitting.
Next year Percival will be taught to do vanishing by Richard at Werkswinkel. Letticia Peterson said that SLF youth are improving at Werkswinkel.
In 2012 Darryn and Shani will be assessed to join Werkswinkel as they will be out of Carpe Diem due to their age.
