Capacity Building

Poverty and HIV/AIDs in Zambia is causing an epidemic of abandoned, neglected or orphaned children as family means are stretched beyond breaking point. Parents and extended relatives simply cannot afford to feed, clothe and educate the younger generation so many turn to orphanages as a last resort.

Community Child Wellbeing Centre

Although Zimbabwe is ranked among the best in Africa for literacy rates, premature school dropout and subsequent income insecurity are rampant.  Credit facilities have little on offer for those who lack collateral security, thereby limiting their earning potential due to lack of investment.  Some are labour constrained, whilst others are labour endowed; but almost all destitute Zimbabweans are food poor and without means to support their household.

Disability Services
  • Category: Disability Inclusive, Education
  • Target Group: Orphans, People with Disabilities
  • Country: Tanzania, United Republic of

Disability Services

In the remote foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, access to healthcare is extremely limited and specialised disability services are virtually non-existent.  An estimated 3 million Tanzanians have a disability, of which far too many are consequently excluded from mainstream schooling and employment. 

Foster Care and Children’s home
  • Category: Child protection
  • Grant: $25,001 to 75,000
  • Target Group: Orphans, People with Disabilities
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Any
  • Country: China

Foster Care and Children’s home

In the Northwest of China, abandoned, impoverished and disabled children are denied their most basic needs for love and affection.  Whilst state funding covers some infrastructure, staffing and operational costs of orphanages and foster care services, its reach is limited and many gaps remain.

Tertiary Education Support
  • Category: Education
  • Grant: $25,001 to 75,000
  • Target Group: Marginalised people, Orphans
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Adolescents
  • Country: Indonesia

Tertiary Education Support

If without financial means, highly competent and motivated students in the Tobasa region of Indonesia are met with few opportunities to pursue further education upon their completion of high school.  Places at the only government university in the area are extremely limited as applications outnumber available positions by approximately ten times, so many aspiring scholars must turn to the private sector.

Vocational Training
  • Category: Life / Vocational Skilling
  • Grant: $25,001 to 75,000
  • Target Group: Orphans
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Any
  • Country: Bolivia

Vocational Training

For young people who have grown up in orphanages and state care centres, transition into independent living can be a confronting stage of life.  To make this process smooth and stress-free, this project provides intermediate accommodation and workshops to give these young people the necessary study opportunities or job-ready skills to thrive under their own drive.
