Unfortunately many children in South Africa still live in large-scale residential care centres. Our partner organisation Give a Child a Family has a lot of experience and knowledge regarding preventing children to be taken into care and starting foster care. Emergency foster care is not yet available. In the years to come, 24 parents will be educated for this.
Our partner Siam Care offers physical, psychological and financial support to families who are faced with HIV/AIDS, so they can look after themselves. This way it is prevented that children end up in shelters. Apart from that, there is support for education for these children.
Our partner Creciendo Unidos guides 160 children intensively to prevent problems within families and to prevent children dropping out of school. They focus on homework support, language development, communication between parents and children, building-up self-esteem and interacting with respect with each other. 155 of these children are still going to school.
