Naledi Mabeba from Lynedoch Montessori House gives a brief introduction of herself and the difficulties she faced when first working with the children in the Western Cape. When Naledi first came to Lynedoch, she realized the harrowing effects that F.A.S. had on the children. Upon gaining an understanding of the difficulties faced by the F.A.S. child, she began to encourage adults to think out of the box for ways to reach these children and offer them the opportunity to reach their potential. Naledi noted that racial difficulties, ranging from discriminations between different cultures and languages could be addressed through grace and courtesy, getting children to understand and be accepting of others and embracing their differences. Another challenge was violence. Naledi stressed the importance of providing an environment that is consistently safe, peaceful and stable whilst the child is at school makes a difference in that child’s life.
