The Fathers Heart Community Development
We are an Orphan and Vulnerable Child Care organization, started in 2019 to assist destitute orphan and vulnerable children. There are more than 5.2 million orphans and vulnerable children (OVC’s) living inside the borders of South Africa today.
Very few of these children have found placement within institutions or formal adoptions, leaving 90% of these OVC’s in the care of grandmothers, relatives or aunts in the communities of South Africa. In most instances, these guardians are barely surviving to provide for themselves, let alone the OVC’s in their care.
Our role is to restore families, transform lives and create an environment where every orphan and vulnerable child can be part of a loving, stable family, where they can go from merely surviving to thrive. We do this by partnering with these families and supporting them through, job creation and placements, upskilling and development and providing foundational tuition and talent development opportunities to the children.
