Just One Child NPC
We have 7 children aged between 12 and 16 as at 1 July 2018, who were received as babies and who had no one else to care for them for various reasons. We have created a blended family with a housemother and seven children who we are bringing up as a family and getting them educated so that as an adult they can take their place in society and be able to fend for themselves as well as create their own future.
Initially we started in 2002 taking in new babies abandoned at birth. Over the years we received 35 babies, 24 of which were either reunited with their family or extended family or were adopted by new families. Two babies did not survive their illnesses and two children were moved to other institutions more capable of providing for those childrens illness/ disability.
The remaing seven children we are committed to bringing up with the best education we can provide for their needs and we hope that once they have completed school we will have prepared them to stand on their own two feet.
We no longer take in babies as we do not have the capital or labour to continue running such an operation.
