Description: Providing support and care to orphans and improving their emotional situations and their level of acceptance with daily routines at either one or two orphanage homes called Kingdom Life (Attridgville).
Kingdom Life Children’s Center . A good-hearted woman resident in Atteridgeville realizing the urgent need for caring for the children in the area with no other place to go has established this home. Initially time and effort was invested in establishing, registering and organizing the affairs of the Home. The main focus currently is to create better opportunities for the children to develop in a stable and caring environment, and to improve their life skills.
Type of Work: It is of paramount importance to us to render services and programs that is in the best interest of every individual child.
Just as soon as you think you've seen the worst of cases, you come across yet another one. Abusers don't discriminate against colour, creed or age. Child Abuse is rife in South Africa and unfortunately not nearly enough is being done to protect the future of our country, the children. Government is shirking their responsibility when it comes to providing for destitute families therefore making it increasingly difficult for the poorest of the poor to survive.
Abuse & Poverty are the main contributing factors to street children and abandoned baby statistics in our country. Volunteers will get first hand activities such as baby minding and cleaning the house.
Study Theme: Other activities will be mentioned with consultation with volunteers as well as matron consultation what exactly needs to be carried out during the work camp.
Accommodation: Accommodation will be in rooms at the project center. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is running water. The accommodation and work place have flushing toilets and do have electricity.
