We are running the following programmes:
12-15 orphaned and abandoned children cared for at one time all through the year. This programme is a 24-hour residential care place:
1) Adopt-A-Cot: financially provide for the care of a child in our home. It's our privilege to care for orphaned and abandoned children, taking them from a desperate place into a hopeful place, with a strong foundation for the future. Together, with your sponsorship, we give our children excellent care with great nutrition, a loving atmosphere, and developmentally-stimulating activities. Together, we prepare them to connect into a Forever Family.
Urban Kids Preschool:
100 children from disadvantaged and emerging families, given access to high-quality preschool education:
2) School Fee Sponsor: financially give towards the education of one child in our preschool. While our school fees are 1/3 of the cost of quality preschool in the area, there are many impoverished families who cannot afford to send their children to quality preschool. Through school fee sponsorship from groups like yours, these families have access to quality education for their children, making their children 3x more likely to matriculate! A solid foundation in preschool breaks the cycle of poverty for these children, giving them options for schooling and careers that their parents never had. Together, we can make a difference.
3) Sponsor a teacher: The programme that trains ECD facilitators in rural and urban low socio-economic areas. We are accredited with SETA to provide the NQF level 4 qualification in ECD that satisfies the government regulations.
Over 100 women and over 2400 children uplifted through training, monitoring/evaluation, resourcing with educational equipment.
