The Blue Bus Community Ministries (BBCM) is a registered Trust (IT 3529/2012) and Public Benefit Organisation (930042404) that focuses on the impoverished community of Delft and has been working with children, youth and families for over 13 years in promoting the unlocking of the full life potential of the people.
Dr Izanette van Schalkwyk developed the programme “Resilient Youth” as part of her PhD research. She wanted to implement the programme within the following guidelines:
- a community who can benefit the most from this programme and where the need was great
- a community who does not necessarily have the support of wealthy parents (i.e., low resources)
- a community that has many challenges like poverty, low learning culture, discouraged to pursue further education, pregnancy, etc.
- a diverse community that has more than one ethnic group (Coloured & Black), and more than one language compilation (Afrikaans & isiXhosa)
If the programme can be successful in an environment like this, the programme can be implemented anywhere in South Africa. An environment as listed above turned out to be a “high risk” community. Within this timeframe of searching for a community like mentioned above, pastor Charles George of Delft invited Dr Izanette to implement this programme in Delft. He will introduce her to a specific school that recently opened to the community and he will act as gatekeeper to the community.
