May is Child Protection Month in South Africa – the goal for Child Protection Month is to promote the culture of respect for children’s rights thus ensuring that all children grow up in an environment that is safe from abuse, neglect and exploitation.

We have a saying at Living Hope – “It’s better to build a whole child than to mend a broken man”

Our Life Skill Educators work with children on a daily basis – reaching over 5000 children every year through afternoon clubs, holiday clubs (VBS), numeracy & literacy tutoring, life orientation classes at Primary Schools, early childhood education in pre-schools, abstinence based programmes, leadership development and teens and college health outreaches.

We want every child to know that God loves them, that He created them with a plan and a purpose and that their current situation does not need to determine their future. Our family strengthening programmes are aimed at working with a child in need as well as their whole family – offering parenting workshops or talks, fatherhood programs and mothercare groups for mothers with new babies.

Will you help us? Will you join us in PROTECTING our children?

We are looking for 1000 people to donate $1 per day to our DAD program inorder to keep our Life Skill Education program going – Without our Life Skill Educators we cannot achieve the above – will you help us?

You can help us by praying for the children of South Africa too – pray for protection from sexual exploitation, child labour, child pornography, child trafficking, physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect

Jesus says in Matthew 18 vs 5 “And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
