Hammanskraal and Plastic view are two settlements adjacent to Pretoria where more than 55,000 people live. The people are in extreme poverty and live in the most vulnerable conditions and/or with the most complex problems (sexual violence and rape, lack of access to basic services such as water, sanitation and health care, drug trafficking and addiction as well as high HIV/AIDS infection levels. In addition, many children have to care for their siblings, as their parents have often been killed by HIV/AIDS. These families are often not registered with the local government, which prevents them from accessing family benefits.
Wereldkinderen supports an efficient program that prevents family disintegration and provides appropriate care and protection for vulnerable children. In total this program supports 90 families and 1,270 children. Also 40 mothers will be able to follow vocational education.
