SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER 2021

Hello everyone! Can you believe 2021 is nearly over? What a crazy year we have had, one filled with changes and turmoil for many. But hopefully also a year filled with kindness, grace and generosity.

I must say, there have been quite a few changes since our last update! 2021 has been an incredible year for Choices, bringing many changes with it. However one thing has remained constant - our support of women in crisis in the KwaZulu Natal province. I am incredibly proud to say that we have offered crisis counselling and antenatal support to over 200 clients this year, and we facilitated prevention work in 2 local schools, reaching over 200 grade 7 learners.
The biggest change for Choices this year was our move from being a physical centre to an online centre. We sadly let go of our beautiful building, and our crisis counselling and antenatal support is now based completely online. This was a difficult decision to make, but for good reasons and definitely for the best.
The move has allowed us to reach so many more women in crisis by expanding our reach outside of Pietermaritzburg alone. I fully expect the number of our clients to grow even more next year, as the online approach seems to be much more popular with young women in crisis. We still have office space in Pietermaritzburg to meet any clients who prefer face-to-face appointments, and we are also excited to facilitate more prevention work in schools next year.

Some more great news is that our 2021 Christmas campaign was a great success. We managed to present 110 children at Ndabenhle Primary School with a Christmas Care Package and we facilitated a short session with the children around having dreams and planning for the future in order to reach those dreams. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed towards this campaign, the children had a great time with our team, and we really enjoyed getting to work with them.
Check out our latest client testimony.
I would like to personally thank everyone who continues to support Choices and prays for our team and our clients. We really appreciate knowing that we have prayer warriors behind us, as this gives us the strength we need to continue with the work we are doing.
We are excited for what next year will bring for Choices, and we pray it would be a better year for everyone in regards to the pandemic and the hardship it has brought into many people's lives. 

In the meantime however, we wish you a very joyful festive season, an extremely happy new year, and we will see you again in 2022!

God bless,
Steph & The Choices Team
