Capacitar: A Brief History

The first Capacitar workshops in South Africa in 2002-2003 were offered in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban and KwaZulu/Natal focusing on trauma and on care for caregivers working with HIV/AIDS. The SACBC (Southern African Catholic Bishops Conference) AIDS Office sponsored retreat workshops for caregivers (2003-2006) and the development of the Capacitar HIV/AIDS Living in Wellness Manual. Seven in-depth trainings and four team trainings have been offered in different regions of the country. Capacitar workshops, manuals and materials and an outreach network are currently coordinated regionally in the Western Cape, Port Elizabeth and East London, as well as under the auspices of different organizations.
