Our children are accommodated in 7 separate houses which are made as much like “home” as possible.

  • They receive three nutritious meals daily,
  • Attend school,
  • Participate in sports
  • Receive psychological and occupational therapy when necessary,  as well as any other medical requirements

Running our dedicated programmes can only be done with your support. We have  identified a number of different projects for which funding is required in order for them to be successful and be maintained.

Your cash donation can thus really make a difference to the benefit of our children.
The government subsidy that we receive for every child in our care covers only 70% of our annual operational (running) costs. The balance of 30% as well as all capital project costs must be raised by fundraising projects and donations from the public, organizations, businesses and companies.

The projects identified are:

  •  Education Services
  • Early Childhood Development                                                                       
  •  Assessments
  •  Staff training
  •  School and Casual Clothing
  •  Shoes
  • Transport and Vehicle maintenance
  •  Building Maintenance and small building projects
  •  Security
  •  Recreation
  •  Pocket money, Christmas and Birthday Gifts
  •  Holiday Programmes For Our Children

Funding is also needed for the following, which can only be undertaken if funds are available:-

  • Furniture                                                                                  
  • Linen, Blankets, Curtains, Towels
  • Kitchenware
  • Electrical and Electronic Appliances/Equipment
  • Vehicle replacement
  • Computer Equipment and Training
  • Building Extensions and New Buildings
  • Training for our school leavers
