Image: Waves for Change: learning, improving, growing In 2015 we partnered with University of Cape Town and University of Western Cape to evaluate W4C Surf Therapy programmes in Cape Town.

We also found W4C decreases violent behaviour, improves behaviour at home and improves attachment to education.

We now connect 400 children, parents and teachers to weekly surf therapy sessions & home visits, and monthly parent and teacher programmes. This is up from 250 at the end of 2015!    Read More...
