In the wake of Apartheid in South Africa, an increasing number of children live in slums, shanty towns, and informal dwellings (mud houses, tin or cardboard shacks), right in the heart of some of the country’s most thriving cities. These children are among some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in the world, deprived of the most basic services and ultimately deprived of the right to learn and succeed.
His Hands for South Africa has established a sponsorship program through which you can sponsor a vulnerable child in South Africa to help them attend nursery/preschool. $25.00 per month will help cover the cost Jwalang Ministries incurs to provide food, basic medical care, and early education for these children in a loving, caring environment.
Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the child they are helping including information about how to correspond with their child, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the age and/or gender of the child they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same child from year to year, as long as the child remains in the program. 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to Jwalang Ministries in South Africa. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US.
[please note – For security reasons, children who are listed for sponsorship consideration on this website will have their faces obscured and will only be referred to by number. However, sponsors will receive an information sheet, similar to the one at right, which will have a photo showing the child’s face and will include their name.]
Sponsoring a child in South Africa is truly a blessing not only to the child, but to the sponsor as well. If you would like information about how you can sponsor a South African child, please contact us.
