Sikunye Events and Workshops

the church & early life

If you are new to Sikunye, this event will help you see the connection between the First Thousand Days (FTD) of a child’s life, what the Bible says, and the role of the local church. This is like an ‘open day’ for you to meet Sikunye team members and understand the big idea.

how to be 'FTD-friendly' workshop

For church leaders who have committed to supporting families but have not yet started. We help you to better understand what your church can be doing and what some of your next steps are in supporting families.

khathalela training

Supportive relationships are powerful in building up caregivers. This is a practical training equipping you to form these kinds of relationship with caregivers, and to share key messages with them – ensuring that important information and skills are being used to grow baby’s full potential.

fatherhood in the first thousand days

Fathers play an important role in a child’s development, emotional well-being, educational achievements, and future productivity – dads do actually build the brains of their children! And this starts in the womb! This training provides male role models in the church tools to journey with fathers in the first thousand days, encouraging them in their role as dad.
