CPUT TOURISM STUDENTS’ OUTREACH

Tourism students' outreach

By Kwanele Butana

Third- year students in the Tourism Department of CPUT took time out of their studies to bring and serve lunch to children at Fikelela Orphanage in Mandela Park, Khayelitsha.

Started in the year 2000 by Anglican Diocesan Rachel Mash, Fikelela Orphanage is home to 38 children. The children, aged between one month and eight years, are vulnerable to HIV/Aids.

The students raised money to buy food, snacks and juice, which they served to the children. They also played several fun games with the children, which included face painting.

Student Thobile Nzima told the orphanage’s caregivers that at CPUT students learnt that sustainable and responsible tourism should have an impact on disadvantaged communities.

“Tourism is about preserving the culture and heritage of South Africa, ideals which in turn promote caring” says Thobile.

The orphanage’s supervisor Terry Galeni says they are grateful for the visit, which had made a huge impact on the children.

Head of the Tourism Department, Mandisa Silo says the visit was humbling and fulfilling and its greatest value was seeing how the students interacted with the children and the impact it had on the latter.
