Enrichment Programs - South Africa
The heartbreaking reality is there are 153 million orphaned and approximately 385 million children living in extreme poverty around the globe. In South Africa, this is widespread due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the region. Currently, there are 2.2 million orphaned children in South Africa, which is why Mom’s House is working tirelessly to improve the lives of these beautiful children. Right now, we are supporting over 5,000 orphans and vulnerable children in the Mpumalanga Region of South Africa, building child care facilities in 98 villages.
In recent years, South Africa has required the children go to school, and while that's a major improvement it's still not enough to give the children a step up in life, especially for those who have lost parents. Enrichment programs within Mom's House for Children will be an additional chance to provide education and life skills to the lives of those we support. This project also provides basic necessities that are not available through the countries education system.
