Sudonia (Donna) Kouter

    I was born in Barrydale South Africa and now work at Net vir Pret, a child and young person organisation based in the community. I am responsible for the running of the Aftercare, Girls Only and Young Leaders programs that the centre offers. My work is very close to my heart and involves working closely with many of the children and young people from the community. I’ve seen many of them grew up in front of my eyes and for me there’s no greater blessing than seeing them all blossom into beautiful human beings. . I am a director, storyteller and artist involved in the Annual Barrydale Giant Puppet Parade and Performance, in partnership with the Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape and over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working with the magic of Giant Puppets and it has been one of the highlights my life thus far!
