HOPE worldwide South Africa
HOPE worldwide South Africa has been serving vulnerable children, households and communities since 1993. From 2011, we have focused our efforts on the most vulnerable – young children aged 0-6 years, as this is the most critical period in a child’s development. What happens in early childhood will last a lifetime.Through partnerships with various organisations, sponsors and volunteers - we have reached nearly 16 000 vulnerable Children through our Early Childhood Development programmes. We are investing in young children through: Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centre (crèche) support, Community ECD Parenting programmes, Nutritional Support, and through our ‘Adopt a Family’ programme. We are operating in seven provinces in South Africa: Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and the Free State where many challenges face children and families. These include; poverty, hunger and high HIV/AIDS prevalence rates.
