SPONSOR A CHILD
Help give orphans and vulnerable children a chance of a future.
Sponsoring a Child for just £10 per month will pay for an orphan or vulnerable child to attend one of our After School Clubs in South Africa.
Our three After School Clubs in South Africa are run by our partner charity Thembalethu, and support up to 300 children every day. These clubs are not like the ones in the UK, where kids just go and play after school, often waiting to be picked up by parents. In fact many of the children who attend these clubs do not have parents and live with either relatives or older siblings or are sometimes the older sibling in charge of the household. They may also be children whose life situation makes them very vulnerable. The future is grim for these children but the clubs provide a safe haven, food and guidance, where otherwise there is none.
So for £10 per month a child gets a whole host of vital support, education, life skills, counselling and a safe place to play and be a child.
They also get help with taking any medication and their home life is assessed to see what they need that we can help with e.g. items of uniform, access to school, food.
What you get
Every penny you donate by supporting our sponsorship programme provides the After-School Clubs with a reliable and regular income to cover its main running costs.
Your money will support all the children at the After-School Clubs and allow them to have access to all of the above. You will also receive two to three updates per year on the progress of the clubs and the children they support.
