Litsemba Centre Activities

Vegetable Garden


The Litsemba Centre regularly plants a vegetable garden at the back of the building to support children in our programmes.  The youth planted it themselves and tend to it regularly.  This has been a learning experience for all of them, as well as an opportunity to receive fresh food parcels.


Street Vendors

The Litsemba Centre assists street vendors who work outside on the main road, by providing a safe place for them to store their produce.

In addition to various crafts such as wire and beadwork, the centre provides opportunities for youth to learn such skills as sewing, weaving, knitting and crochet, and other crafts through the LLITSEMBA PREGNANCY CARE programme.

Our future plans include having the option to work in a welding programme, a construction programme or a carpentry programme. The hope is that those youth who are not able to make it through the academic school system, can become useful and productive citizens of this country by gaining non-academic skills and trades.


These life sized trophies are made from wire and discarded beer cans.  This means recyling in the community is taking on a new image in the form of unique art objects.
