Child Headed Families Project 

100% of your donation goes to one of the 60 'Child Headed Families'

In our families, one or both parents have died, often from HIV or other impacts of extreme poverty, leaving the eldest child with responsibility for all of their siblings. 

A Four-Year Programme

YEAR 1

The children receive food and medicine to help stabilise the situation they are in. 

YEAR 2

Each family is given cattle to provide milk to drink and manure for farming. The long term potential to breed can also generate further income. 

YEAR 3

The oldest child receives vocational training at our school and when they graduate they are given the resources to empower them to earn a living. 

YEAR 4

We build a quality home for each family. A safe and valuable place to live as they graduate the programme.

EXPERT SUPPORT FOR THE FAMILIES
