Hands of love
In a nutshell Hands of Love is an NGO Initiative focused on teenage girls facing many challenges that obstruct their education and development. The organizations focus is to reduce the number of scholar drop out in the Western Cape . Our target market are teen girls in the townships communities and surrounding high schools in Mfuleni, Khayelitsha, Gugulethu.
We work with youth in order to guide the girl child into womanhood. Hands of love have various programs to help the youth, this includes mentoring, counselling and coaching the girls in order to influence their thinking and plant seeds of hope. We target these young ladies with the mission to bridge the gap in both primary and secondary education of vulnerable girls and socially deprived girls in order to stimulate development that is sustainable.
Hands of love task is to mentor and coach these girls in order to influence their thinking and plant seeds of hope. South Africa’s tomorrow lies on the hands of these young stars and if not properly developed we miss out on the leaders, doctors and presidents of tomorrow. Unsupervised and uncared teens are at greater risk for several negative outcomes such as poor academic achievement, school dropout, abuse and neglect, behavioural and socio emotional problems, physical health problems, and developmental delays.
Hand of Love goal is to cover the gap by giving love to these girl teen children and offer the support and love they normally don’t find at home. We motivate and encourage them to use their environment as push to work hard so they can be notable figures in the future who can come and give back to the society in the same way that hands of love is giving to them.
