Latest 2014 Stats showed that out of South Africa's 18.5 million children, 5.2 million are orphans. That is a staggering 2 out of every 7 children. How can we stand by and do nothing when facing such a crisis. HOPE VILLAGE will strive to make a positive difference in as many of these children's lives as possible. YOU can be a part of it.
Our vision is to provide a loving family for children who do not get adopted. We plan on doing this by establishing a Village that will have individual cottages each designed to accommodate a house mother/house parents caring for up to 6 orphan and vulnerable children.
We would like to create a family environment, as far as possible, where our children can grow up with the love and care and nurture they need. It is our aim for the Village to become, by-and-large, self-sustainable through such things as subsistence farming and the establishment of income generating businesses.
FUNDING AND SUSTAINABILITY
It is our dream to create a sustainable home for the children. Purchasing land and developing the site will require significant donor funding initially. For every day running costs, we hope to create a self-sustainable village but we understand that this will be dependent upon the land we are able to secure and will also take some time to develop and grow.
