Children's Circle of Support

The Children's Circle of Support focuses on Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) with the aim of improving their quality of life and providing them with the necessary support to enable them to live a reasonable life.

The Children’s Circle of Support programme provides over 200 orphans and Lunchtimevulnerable children 2 meals a day, “after school” activities, uniforms, clothes and psycho-social and counselling support. The prime objective in the current environment is to ensure that as many children as possible can be accommodated in this programme. Since the funding crises we have had to reduce the number of children that we can feed and support and this has resulted in some childrenbeing forced into joining gangs and to turn to crime just to survive from day to day. It is important to fully understand that both our “Children’s Circle of Support” and our “Sponsor a Child” programmes focus on preventing the children from joining gangs and turning to crime.

This is where “CRIME PREVENTION” must begin.

The HRT "Social Enterprise"

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust has developed a "sustainability strategy" to limit the challenges of getting "grant funding" from government, funding agencies and business in these difficult economic times. The strategy is built around the establishment of a "Social Enterprise" in line with global trends.


Non-Profit Organisations - The Current Funding Model is NOT Sustainable

Why ? What are the alternatives ?

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust, like many other NPO’s / NGO’s, is threatened by the current "grant funding" models in South Africa, where most NPO’s are totally dependent on "grant funding from Government, Funding Agencies, Business, Individual Donors, Sponsors and fund raising events.
