"Sponsor a Social Carer" options

Here are the details of the various "Sponsor a Social Carer" sponsorship options and how you can become a "Sponsor" to enable the HRT to continue providing critical services and support to people living in the impoverished communities of the Overstrand.

 

Please consider supporting one or more of our Social Carer's by becoming a Sponsor. Your sponsorship will “make a huge difference” as it will enable the Trust to renew the Social Carer’s contracts for 2013, and continue to provide the essential “Community and Social Development” services and support to the impoverished communities of the Overstrand in the Western Cape – South Africa.

 

“Sponsor a Social Carer” Programme

Our dedicated Social Carers have many years experience and are well trained in psycho-social support and counselling, HIV care and support, and parenting, lifestyle skills and early childhood development. They have been trained and mentored by 4th and 5th year Medical, Occupational Therapy, and Dietetics students from Stellenbosh University. The HRT, in partnership with the University has developed and implemented a “world-class” parenting and “early childhood development” programme which is currently being implemented as part of our highly successful “Parenting Worx” programme. Our Social Carer’s live in the communities that we serve and are trusted and  well respected for the contribution they make to the communities. They are the backbone of the HRT “Community and Social Development” programmes as they interact directly with the children, parents, family members, teachers, siblings and friends and are available to assist with any problems or referals, on a day to day basis. This also positions them to detect major issues like rape, abuse of women and children and crime.

Grant Funding Crises

Unfortunately the current government “Grant Funding” crises has created a situation where the HRT Social Carers will not be funded beyond March 2013. This will have a serious impact on all of our programmes, which has prompted the Board of Trustee’s to launch the “Sponsor a Social Carer” Programme. This programme will fund our Social Carers and continue to grow our programmes while we implement our “Sustainability Strategy” over the next 3 years, which will reduce our dependence on the erratic and unpredictable government “grant funding”.

The concept of the programme is to secure sufficient funding on a “month by month” basis to support our 12 Social Carer’s until such time as long term funding can be secured and our “sustainability strategy” becomes fully productive. To achieve this, the programme has been developed to provide both businesses and individual donors flexible and affordable opportunities to support the community by participating in this interim solution.

However to renew the Social Carer’s contracts for 2013 we need your urgent help and support.

By sponsoring a Carer, you will be helping the HRT to continue to provide the existing “Social Purpose” programmes to hundreds of Orphans, Vulnerable Children and disadvantaged families who depend on this support to survive. This is in the interest of everyone living in the Overstrand.

Every donation, no matter how small will go towards supporting a Social Carer and will contribute to alleviating poverty, hunger, malnutrition, child morbidity and the prevention of rape, abuse and crime.

The Ultimate Target

The ultimate target is to secure sufficient funding to support 12 carers for one year. The requirement to support each Social Carer to enable them to do their day to day work is R2,200.00 per month ($244), 26,400 per year ($2,933). The total target for 12 Carers for the Year is R316,800.00 ($35,200).

(Current $/Rand exchange rate R9.00 =$1.00)

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.

Please help us help those in NEED !
