Make a Difference - "Sponsor a Child"
Here are the details of our “Sponsor a Child” programme. At any point in time we have over 50 children that have been identified by our Social workers and carer's that are in desperate need of assistance just to help them survive from day to day. Please consider supporting one of these children by becoming a Sponsor. Your sponsorship will “make a huge difference” in the life of a disadvantaged child living in an impoverished community in the Overstrand.
“Sponsor a Child” Programme
We have 4 sponsorship options in the “Sponsor a Child” programme, each providing the children with basic needs according to their personal circumstances, which is assessed by the Social Carers that visit the children, parents and teachers on a regular basis. The Carer’s submit monthly reports and maintain a “Personal File” for the Social Workers and Management, to monitor and evaluate and to take any necessary actions if required. This includes a formal “Referral Programme” that may involve Child Welfare, Police, Hospitals / Clinics and specialist counselling and services for trauma situations, including death, rape, abuse, crime and teenage pregnancies.
There are 4 options to choose from.
- Basic Support Programme. This programme is based on a monthly funding donation of R100.00. This provides a very basic “food parcel” and basic toiletries. (toothpaste and soap).
- Child Support Programme. This programme is based on a monthly funding donation of R200.00. This provides a basic “food parcel”, toiletries and sundries like books, toys, electricity and paraffin, as required
- Basic Development Programme. As schooling and development are such a critical part of the HRT’s mission we use this donation of R300 per month to provide school fees, basic clothing, a food parcel, toiletries and sundries
- Development Programme. This programme is the same as the Basic Development Programme except that there is an additional 'one-off' R300.00 in the first month of each year of the programme to provide a full school uniform, and R300 per month thereafter for a food parcel, toiletries and sundries, based on the child’s personal needs.
If a sponsor chooses to increase any of the “sponsorship” programme donations, either on a monthly basis or as a “one off” donation, we utilise the money for additional nutritious food, clothes, books and educational toys, depending on each child’s circumstances. We also try to take groups of children to the “Wimpy” for an outing once a year and buy them a Christmas and birthday present. (in some cases this is the first time they would ever have experienced this.)
“Please Help us to Help Those Who Can’t Help Themselves”
Please contact me if you are interested to become a “Sponsor” and let me know which programme option you would be interested in, together with any preferences.
e-Mail us your details, including your contact details, the sponsor option, and the preferences - number of children, boy or girl, age, location, (Zwelihle, Kleinmond, Stanford, Gansbaai or Buffelsjag), or other preferences.
Mandy, our dedicated “Sponsor a Child” Social Carer will select a child for you, create a “Profile” and we will provide you with the details and a short overview of the child’s current living situation. Thereafter you will get a regular update on the child’s progress, achievements and aspirations.
