Organisation tackling substance abuse launched

first_imgThe Life Reform, an organisation registered under the Ministry of the Presidency, was launched on Tuesday and its main goal is to address the issues of substance abuse affecting youths in Guyana.The Life Reform – Making Strides to Save Lives, was created with the intention of bringing about the transformation that is urgently needed in Guyana in relation to issues such as the abuse of illicit substances by youths.According to the organisation, data from research studies in Guyana shows young people are the most vulnerable group to substance abuse and first use has been recorded in the 10-14 years’ age group.A section of the gathering at the launch of Life Reform organisationChairman of the organisation, Phillip Drayton, during a simple launching ceremony at the Racquet Centre on Tuesday revealed that research has shown that some 70 per cent of youths in today’s society believe it is okay to smoke or consume alcohol. He added that 35 per cent of parents are consuming mood and mind altering substances and 80 per cent of society does not understand the real dangers of substance misuse.“Our members began to work towards a free Guyana by engaging our certified and experienced drug treatment specialists, social workers, counsellors, psychologists, and psychiatrists who will assist the general public and persons suffering from substance misuse or any form of mental illness to determine the level of treatment necessary for each individual and intervention necessary for each individual so that misuse can be arrested and recovery can become possible,” Drayton explained.He pointed out that Life Reform will soon be rolling out awareness campaigns focusing on drug education and prevention programmes and outpatient services including regular and programmed meetings countrywide.A major project which Life Reform is focused on is the Secondary School Drug Education and Prevention Programme, a life skills programme which teaches the necessary skills to assist young people to improve their knowledge and to encourage the development of defensible values.This programme, he said, was introduced to the Education Ministry and permission was granted for Life Reform to commence its campaigns in Georgetown and all other regions of Guyana.Drayton encouraged the public to join its journey for a Drug Free Guyana as its members stand ready to collaborate with all interested individuals and groups.Meanwhile, Trevor Hollenkirk, a recovering addict who has been clean for 20 years, is also a part of the Executive Committee for Life Reform and a counsellor. He shared his experience and the hardships he endured as an addict and hopes his story will touch the lives of others who are struggling with substance abuse.He has travelled throughout the country educating persons of the dangers of substance abuse and sharing his story with vulnerable groups. He related how he managed to change his life for the better after battling with substance abuse from the age of 11 years. He is confident that the organisation will serve its intended purpose with success. He urged youths to refrain from the use of illicit drugs and alcohol. “For those of you youths that might want to try marijuana. Put it down right now. It does nothing for you but destroy your life. It doesn’t help you with school work or in any other area. Leave it right where it is,” he urged.Also part of the Executive Committee of Life Reform are Lavern Fraser, the Secretary; and Kasper Carter, Vice Chairman, who were all in attendance at the launch. Moderator Kirt Jardine expressed gratitude for the establishment of such an organisation which he is confident will impact positively on the lives of those battling substance abuse and Guyana on the whole.last_img read more

SA competes at food Olympics

first_imgMaking us proud: The National Culinary Team representing South Africa at the Food Olympics. A scrumpticious beef ensemble by chef Bertus Basson. A desert creation by Candice Philip. A Two onion soup by Henrico Grobbelaar.(Images:saca.co.za)   Khanyi Magubane13 of South Africa’s top chefs will face the tough challenge of titillating the taste buds of judges when they represent the country at the Internationale Kochkunst Ausstellung (IKA) Culinary Olympics in Germany from 19 to 23 October.IKA 2008, as the competition is loosely named, will boast 40 national teams, 90 regional teams, 11 military teams and 2000 chefs and confectioners.Like the traditional Olympics, winners from the different categories will receive gold, silver and bronze medals respectively.Competitors will be expected to demonstrate their superior culinary skills in 20 categories that consist of every aspect of the high-culture of haute cuisine and patisserie (pastry or confectionary).Held every four years, the competition has been in existence for the past 100 years in Germany.It has grown phenomenally from its humble beginnings. It began as a local cooking contest in 1896 at the Frankfurt fairgrounds. Up until 1996, this remained the location for the competition. It then moved to Berlin, and is now currently held in Erfurt.Making South Africa proudThe team representing South Africa at the Olympics has been carefully selected. All the team members have made strides in their careers, which gained them the necessary recognition to compete in the Olympics.Allistaire Lawrence has a broad range of experience that he’s bringing to the team. After completing his studies at the prestigious Institute of Culinary Art in Stellenbosch, he worked at the equally illustrious Village Hotel on the Spier Wine Estate. He is now based in Johannesburg, where he works at the award-winning Roots Restaurant, north of Johannesburg.His experience in international cooking competitions includes participating in the Hans Bueschkens Junior Chefs Challenge in New Zealand in 2006, where he was the reserve. In 2007 Lawrence became a junior member of the National Culinary Team.An experienced chef, Bertus Basson studied in Cape Town, in the Western Cape. After studying, he worked at a variety of restaurants, including the Western Cape Hotel & Spa in Hermanus.In 2005, along with his business partner Craig Cormack, Basson started his own business, All Things Culinary. Last year, Basson’s dream of owning his own restaurant was realised when he opened Overture, based at the Hidden Valley Wines in Stellenbosch, along the Cape wine route.He is a senior member of the national team, having won fourth place in the international Swiss competition Chaine des Rotisseurs Jeune Commis in 2002. The competition was established in 1977 to support young, aspirant chefs to hone their skills.In 2007, he was named the Unilever food solutions senior chef of the year in 2007. He joined Team South Africa in 2003, travelling to the American Culinary Classic in May the same year, where the team won two silver and two bronze medals.Candice Philip had a unique opportunity to work while simultaneously earning her qualification. She was part of an apprentice programme at the events venue Gallagher Estate, where she spent four years. Two and a half years ago she joined the prestigious Saxon Hotel, where she still currently works.Like her team mates, Philip’s track record in culinary competitions is excellent. In 2006, she was placed third at the Chaine des Rotisseurs Jeune Commis competition in 2006. The following year was a busy one for Philip, who won a bronze medal in the Mini Plated Salon Culinaire at Hostex, a South African hospitality and catering exhibition. She also took second place in the Sunday Times Chef of the Year and second place in the Unilever foods solutions senior chef of the year.Perhaps the groups’ most experienced chef, Garth Shnier, is a graduate from the Southern Sun in-house training programme and has worked both locally and internationally, including Germany and the US. He is currently the executive chef at the five-star Michelangelo Hotel.Shnier has been part of South Africa’s National Culinary Team for 14 years and has represented South Africa in no less than eight international individual and team competitions. He has brought home two gold and several silver medals.Cape Town-born Dilene Cranna’s entry into the world of cooking happened quite by chance. Not sure what to study, she enrolled in the first programme her finger landed on at Cape Technikon’s yearbook. Although she initially didn’t like the course, she found her passion in pastry. She has been a member of the national team as a pastry specialist since 2005.No newcomer to culinary competitions, Henrico Grobbelaar also hails from the Cape. Having studied at the South African Culinary Academy in Cape Town, He began his career as a junior chef de partie at Erinvale Estate Hotel, in the Western Cape.

He is now the owner of Lemon’s Bistro in Somerset West.In January 2005, Grobbelaar won first place in the National Salon Culinaire competition, this attracted the attention of the selectors of the national team.Multi-award winning South African chef Jodi-Ann Palmer graduated from Silwood Kitchen, one of South Africa’s oldest culinary training schools. She has vast work experience, where she has worked with her team members Bertus Basson at his eatery, as well as with Garth Shnier on some of his projects.Her accolades including winning the McCain tribute to good taste at Hostex Cape 2006.

Jodi is a previous winner of the prestigious Unilever Junior Chef of the Year award.The team’s newcomer Samantha Montzinger finished her studies in 2004. She then had the opportunity to work with her mentor Jeff Scheuremanns until 2006. She is currently with Fedics, South Africa’s biggest black-owned outsourced catering company, where she is executive chef and catering manager for their national head office.Described as having a competitive spirit, Montzinger ’s pure dedication, passion and flair stood out to the national team selectors, who chose her to represent South Africa at IKA 2008.Other team members include Marli Robert, Rudi Liebenberg, Trevor Boyd and Vicki Gurovich, all with equally impressive culinary CVs.National recognitionThe National Culinary Team (NCT) consists of 11 distinguished chefs who have set themselves head and shoulders above their contemporaries.For the first time this year, the NCT’s status has been recognised as a South African team.In recognising the team, the Department of Arts and Culture’s Bureau of Heraldry has now officially registered a coat of arms for the team.The coat of arms depicts the classic tools of a chefs’ trade – a spoon and a whisk – as well as the chef’s hat and flames. The emblem also boasts South Africa’s national flower.Beneath the emblem, is a banner with “Masakhane Team SA” inscribed – Masakhane being a Zulu/Xhosa phrase that meaning, “Lets build each other up” or “Stand Together”.“Team SA’s coat of arms is one in which the South African hospitality industry can be proud and which young chefs can aspire to wear as a member of Team South Africa,” said Garth Shnier, the international competitions director for the South African Chefs Association and the manager for team South Africa.Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

Learning made fun for children

first_imgSong and dance are used to teach kids how to use and handle paraffin. (Image: Engen)Paraffin, one of the main sources of fuel for cooking and heating used by disadvantaged people, is to blame for many disasters, such as children drinking it and fires caused by paraffin stoves.Engen KlevaKidz educates rural and township communities about safe handling and storage of paraffin. A national campaign running from 31 August to 11 September is a mobile educational stage drama that is travelling through Mpumalanga.Over the duration of the campaign, it will visit 20 schools in disadvantaged communities, where household use of paraffin is widespread and paraffin-related accidents are common. These include Hammanskraal, Pankop, Phake Rebone Village and Mmametlhake.Launched in 2008, Engen KlevaKidz has reached 139 643 learners in 391 schools. This year, the campaign is visiting 100 new schools across the country.“As the name suggests, the KlevaKidz campaign delivers its empowering safety message through edutainment, including what to do in an emergency,” said Tasneem Sulaiman-Bray, Engen’s general manager for corporate affairs.Engen commissioned research in 2011 on the awareness of children before and after seeing Engen KlevaKidz. It found that awareness improved from 24% to 90% and changed the behaviour of more than 80% of participants.“It is heartening to see such an important message becoming so entrenched,” she added.BEWARE THE DANGERS OF PARAFFINEngen KlevaKidz uses a television quiz show format as a vehicle for relaying the message, which is combined with a catchy jingle – a useful vehicle to help children remember important messages.Through this format it raises awareness of the dangers associated with handling and storing paraffin and how to prevent accidents.“Over the years of Engen’s involvement in paraffin safety we have become aware that children aged eight to 13 are often the primary daytime caregivers of their younger brothers and sisters. It is with this in mind that we target them with the message of safety,” said Mntu Nduvane, Engen’s corporate social investment manager.“We have found edutainment to be a powerful medium to stimulate children’s imagination. What is even more rewarding is to hear children of four years old still singing the paraffin safety jingle afterwards.”last_img read more
