To provide love & mental support and improve emotional situations of the children in needs – via join activities, games and trainings In order to get closer to the children the “angel game” can be used: Every volunteer is responsible for 5-6 children (the names could be chosen by small slips of papers with names or by personal request after few – 2 or 3 – days). The (secret) “angels” need to make small surprises to their chosen ones (e.g. little presents, extra programs together). Children should find out in few days-time who is their secret angel. After that, “angels” continue to pay special attention to them during the whole camp (e.g. studying and playing together) Providing support and care to orphans and improving their emotional situations and their level of acceptance with daily routines at an orphanage home called Kingdom Life Children’s Center. A good-hearted woman resident in Atteridgeville realizing the urgent need for caring for the children in the area with no other place to go has established this home. Initially time and effort was invested in establishing, registering and organizing the affairs of the Home. The main focus currently is to create better opportunities for the children to develop in a stable and caring environment, and to improve their life skills. Forty-four children and counting aged between six and nineteen reside at the Home on a full time basis. It is of paramount importance to us to render services and programs that is in the best interest of every individual child. Just as soon as you think you've seen the worst of cases, you come across yet another one. Abusers don't discriminate against colour, creed or age. Child Abuse is rife in South Africa and unfortunately not nearly enough is being done to protect the future of our country, the children. Government is shirking their responsibility when it comes to providing for destitute families therefore making it increasingly difficult for the poorest of the poor to survive. Abuse & Poverty are the main contributing factors to street children and abandoned baby statistics in our country. Volunteers will get first hand activities such as baby minding and cleaning the house. Other activities will be mentioned with consultation with volunteers as well as matron consultation what exactly needs to be carried out during the work camp.
Accommodation will be in rooms at the project center. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is running water. The accommodation and work place have flushing toilets and do have electricity. Food will be local variety and volunteers can be able to provide their country variety of food to the children and group at large.
