The main goal of our sponsorship program is to help orphaned and vulnerable children to grow and thrive. Through the program, sponsors give $38 (R550) a month per child. This donation goes towards food for the child, emotional support of a Social worker, school uniforms, assistance with medical needs, and much needed toiletry items (toothbrush, soap, etc).
The children: we partner with several Pastors in rural communities around Pretoria, South Africa. These Pastors have been caring for their community for years. Abba's Child's purpose is to assist these Pastors in caring for the orphaned and vulnerable children in their communities. The Pastors and After Care Leaders identify the most vulnerable children in their communities who could most benefit from the Abba's Child program. We conduct a screening process which includes home visits. We then sit down and determine whether Abba's Child would be a good fit for these children and their families. One requirement we have is that the children attend our After Care Program regularly.
