Survive. Thrive. Succeed.
Over 800 orphans and vulnerable children
16 child-headed homes
21 teenagers participating in our sports leadership programme
Survive: In partnership with Blessman Ministries, we provide food aide to over 800 orphans and children on a monthly basis. Our annual campaign, Clothe-A-Child, raises funds to buy school uniforms for our learners. We also respond to needs as they arise, utilizing our network of donors and volunteers who want to give back to the community, including infrastructural needs at daycares and orphanages.
Thrive: We have a number of youth programmes on offer, most of which focus on character building, goals setting, and psychosocial support. We also train caregivers and parents in the community on parenting skills which complement our youth programmes.
Succeed: Our aim is the see youth in our communities get educations, jobs, and have redeemed family lives. We assist with application fees for university, FET programmes, and hope to be able to match them in corporate learnership / job skills training programmes.
