We work with families over an extended period of time to address their immediate and long term needs, understand their aspirations and provide them with a route to achieving self-sufficiency. Many of the families we work have complex, multiple needs and there are often issues such as addiction and domestic violence that need to be addressed.
By providing one to one support to families we show them, through practical, emotional and spiritual ways that they can change their lives.
All of the families we work with live below the poverty line and some are struggling to survive on less than R18 a day. Over time by building trust our staff show families how they can build a better future for themselves.
As a sponsor you are a vital part of that relationship, not just by making it possible financially but by writing to your family, or even visiting them if you can.
Just knowing that someone cares about them can make all the difference.
