Creating better tomorrows from the ashes of today

23 Nov 18

Free, accredited, Trauma Training courses for Child workers were hosted in Paarl and George.

Papillon is the patron of a partner Non Profit “Apples of Gold” that offers trauma courses to members of the communities that work with children.

SAPS volunteers, emergency workers, teachers, Non Profit workers, Crèche workers and many others attend the internationally accredited courses.

These popular courses are held across the country and as far afield as Addis Ababa and Ecuador.
1000 plus have completed these courses and are proud certificate owners.

During their 17 years of work in the Gauteng area, The Papillon Foundation have achieved some amazing records. They ran several community improvement projects, most notably; 423 Tons of donated goods were freely distributed to poor areas across the country and 9717 community members graduated from Papillon’s skills training projects.
