Community Training & Development
Promoting ethical service delivery and quality education where children matter.
Empowering the next generation as leaders of change
Ethical values by definition are positive and they often require that we stretch outside of our own interests to respect, protect, serve and help others.

What People say
We have started well. We have a clear future plan, we have enthusiasm and hope, we are getting to a place where we can be a responsible, well managed organisation.
I have learnt so many new skills! How to strategically plan leadership, governance, change management, policies, strength of board, fundraising, reporting and social media.
Ezrah reflects integrity, a high level of ethics and empowerment in their service delivery. Ezrah takes initiative to promote excellent service delivery and address systems that malfunction in a constructive way. Ezrah acts promptly, is supportive and always reliable and trustworthy.
Khula incorporated various aspects of the three different workshops into our programmes such as the four building blocks of parenting. The Child protection Steering group has given us a platform to voice our challenges regarding the reporting of child protection cases. It is also encouraging to collaborate and work on a joint protocol regarding the…
In 2018 we were privileged to (through Valcare) join Ezrah on our organisational development journey. As an NGO that recently went through big organisational changes we benefited tremendously from the practical and succinct training. We were presented with tools that we could use immediately, and Mariette truly has a gift of taking a big and complicated…
Ezrah is our lifeline! As unexperienced NGO directors we feel so safe to know we have you as part of our team – thank you for the patience with which you guide us through our growing pains.
In every decision that I make I had thought of the LEAD model principles and by using these principles to also encourage students at my school to stay in school.
Thank you for the impact that Ezrah has on the leaders of our partners and of course the communities which they serve.
I will apply this at the aftercare through being an example to the kids on everything I have learned.
I always love and appreciate these seminars. It teaches me to be a better person and a good role model.
For me the workshop was an eye-opener. Kind of gave me another view on helping me to raise my child in the right way.
The Impact of training services provided by Ezrah was clearly evident after the first child protection project that we worked together in 2015, they provided practical interactive training sessions with the ECD practitioners on child protection policies. From the follow up meetings conducted with the ECD centres over 90 % of the trainees had put…
I realized how important it is to focus on the implementation of the strategic planning and not just with service delivery.
It was really a privilege to attend the workshop. I was so excited to tell my colleague about the workshop and what it entails, and how we can implement it in our areas. I am super excited to start my parenting group.
The LEAD model will assist me tremendously with the development of our team, I loved how the facilitator brought her personal and practical experience, which always enhances training.
This workshop has helped me to differentiate between what is morally right and wrong and how it not only affects me, but others in my community. I highly recommend this to anyone who can get the chance to attend this workshop.
I can’t wait to apply the information we learned today during our parenting skills workshops, as well as during our individual sessions with parents. Thank you and I am looking forward to another workshop!
I learned how important it is to do everything with love, to have respect and peace, and to value teamwork. Thank you for your amazing work!
The workshop was excellent, and the information was truly insightful, I love the way the facilitator presented.
The LEAD model can be practically applied and used as a guideline in counselling. Model can also be used as a positive means to problem-solve.
Educational, insightful and a real eye-opener.
It provided clarity on the challenges and the organisational dynamics. Thank you so much for making me understand what strategic planning is all about!
To put things in place – child protection policy and to implement it. The workshop was awesome. I have gained lots of knowledge and will make sure to prove the knowledge at my ECD centre.
I really, really, really enjoyed the course. It helped me personally to become a better practitioner to teach the little ones to be the best people and grown-ups one day. Healthy teacher = healthy child.
I enjoy Mariette’s trainings because it’s always practical and of the highest standard! The material is always useful and easy to implement as a manual after the training! Maarten’s session was great, with good info and well prepared and very relevant!! Thank you Ezrah for a really excellent training, you empower us to do what…
The key functions of ethical leadership inspired me today. Thanks for an awesome and effective training!! Thanks to you and your team for your love and support!
Discipline and attitude were the most important values taught today, because leadership starts with me and goes to the community. The session was very exciting and encouraging; very well constructed. Thank you!
I would like to thank you for a wonderful team building, we honestly needed it as we experience many challenges. Today taught us new skills to stimulate children, it highlighted the need for collaboration skills and succeeding together as a team. Thank you!
I found the signs to look out for when a child is being abused and neglected especially helpful. I liked the facilitator, she explains everything clearly and gives examples, so we can understand.
I have a clearer idea of how to implement policies and act on them. It is our children’s future that we as practitioners or caregivers have in our hands. I want to say thank you for sharing your knowledge.
As a person I have grown, and I believe now that all things are possible no matter what background I come from, I can be someone in the future.
I have learned specific questions to break down resistance and encourage change. It combined all the information into easy steps and made it easy to practise. There is a high need for this.
The facilitation was given in a very warm, friendly and professional manner. The presenter was very informative and approachable. We would recommend this workshop to other centres working with children.
The workshop allowed for our staff to reflect on their own skills used during the therapeutic phase with our clients. I would definitely recommend Ezrah to other organisations.
