Background – Unemployment and social circumstances are major problems in the informal settlements.
Motivation – The mortality rate is high due to poor healthcare and Aids, resulting in an increase in abandoned and at-risk children. A surviving parent, a grandmother or another family member may take care of a child. If not, the child becomes homeless, sleeping in the open and living hand to mouth.
The Back 2 School Project – The Shiloh ‘Back 2 School’ Project aims to help poor children by supplying the basics needed to attend school properly. We believe all children have the right to an education. We arrange assistance with school homework as volunteers become available to assist us. Leadership, development and building self-esteem form a big part of our development strategy. Encouraging children to become what God intended for them to be and giving them hope are at the heart of the project. We work in conjunction with the schools and their welfare workers.
What we do – We supply school clothes for summer and winter, stationery, a contribution towards school fees, and lots of motivational encouragement.
