Project Description

Background - Unemployment and social circumstances are major problems in the informal settlements.

The mortality rate is high due to poor healthcare and Aids, resulting in an increase in abandoned and at-risk children. A surviving parent, a grandmother or another family member may take care of a child. If not, the child becomes homeless, sleeping in the open and living hand to mouth.

Motivation - Unemployment and social circumstances are major problems in the informal settlements. The mortality rate is high due to poor healthcare and Aids, resulting in an increase in abandoned and at-risk children. A surviving parent, a grandmother or another family member may take care of a child. If not, the child becomes homeless, sleeping in the open and living hand to mouth.

The Back To School project - The Shiloh ‘Back to School’ Project supplies needy children with the necessary basics to be able to attend school properly. We believe all children have the right to an education. We arrange assistance with school homework, as and when volunteers are available to assist us with this. Leadership, development and self-esteem building forms a big part of our development strategy. Encouraging children to become what God intended for them to be, and to give them hope, is at the heart of the project. We work in conjunction with the schools and their welfare workers.

What we do – We supply school clothes for Summer & Winter, stationary, a contribution towards school-fees and lots of motivational encouragement.
