Arise believes that every child deserves to be raised in a thriving family, whichever way their family is formed.
Poverty, lack of employment, poor quality education, drug and alcohol addiction, violence and gangsterism destroy local families in the community we work in on the Cape Flats. Yet, Arise refuses to accept that these common stories of failure are the only option, and we are committed to new stories of restored families, thriving children and transformation.
We believe that it is only through strengthening families that we will start to see lasting and sustainable change in our country. Resilience, attachment and family preservation are the the bedrock on which all our programmes are built and we believe that family strengthening needs to be the cornerstone of change built into every development programme across sectors. Our family strengthening work focuses on building resilience, deepening relationships, nurturing strengths, growing problem solving skills and developing a sense of belonging in all our families, regardless of how that family is formed. This brief presentation explores the various ways our NGO is strengthening families and urges listeners to consider their impact too. Because by strengthening families we strengthen communities.
That's why we developed a unique Family Centre model to holistically engage entire families in resource-poor communities, helping them to make lasting structural and systemic change for the whole family.That's why we have worked hard to promote and support adoption for children without families for more than 10 years now. We have even launched our new training and consulting services across the country so that we can increase our footprint of family strengthening nationwide!
