    from the Department of Health has a lot of personal and professional experience regarding the matter She has been involved with the GIRRL project for over a year now in the Ikageng site and in supporting Maquassi Hills despite her other work commitments One of the most significant contributions was her ability to step in and explain the importance of responsibility to the girls The fact that most of them are still very young and are now faced with adult situations and decision making positions meant that they needed the correct advice from someone who has experience and insight Needless to say the girls enjoyed the maternal nature of Ms Mokatsane and she was able to establish the level of comfort needed to allow them open up about the issues in their lives and the struggles they are faced with on a daily basis Nineteen 19 girls attended the session Session 11 Community Involvement Seeing as the G I R R L Project is a community based working within a specific community it is vital to get the various role players at local level involved with the girls and plays a large role in the sustainability of the project The aim is that each of the various representatives at this session would be able to utilize the girls in future and make use of their fantastic new skills and capacities Each facilitator explained to the girls how they could get involved with their various institutions and emphasized the fact that volunteering at local level could open up many doors in future Nineteen 19 girls participated in this session Session 12 Social and personal issues Due to the delicate issue of suicide that was raised by a few of the girls and the unfortunate experience of one of the participants who discovered her deceased brother in the family during the course of the project this topic was included and emphasized in the discusssions This emphasized the need to address this issue and other aspects in the girls lives that could make them feel depressed alone and desperate Nthabiseng Mataboge from the Department of Social Development was sought as one of the dynamic social workers from the Ventersdorp area as a local facilitator In her experience she has become familiar with many of the stressors and strains that challenge the participants on a daily basis By making use of a group discussion setting the girls analysed the various scenarios leading to suicide and Ms Mataboge assisted them in identifying coping mechanisms when they are faced with a social or personal issue or problem Fifteen 15 participants attended the session Session 13 Disaster
