Orphans Christmas (Project)!
This yearly project is designed to help orphans and underprivileged children from childheaded households celebrate their Christmas, and make them realize that they too matter and have not been forgotten. Orphans are assessed for their christmas gift wishes, and the organization fulfils them on Christmas day. We turn those boring Christmas lunches into something not only exciting and fun but educational, therapeutic and empowering.
HEART OF AN ORPHAN:
"What people fail to realize is that, we orphans carry all of our burdens that life has handed to us from the moment we become orphans at whatever age. Everything we know and used to know about ourselves is gone, we are faced with a painful, empty, meaningless and frightening life. We are faced with having to find the spirit within to make sense of our lives, find courage to give ourselves direction. It is very depressing and it hurts to feel like you're alone and that the world doesn’t care." - Anonymous
Orphans Birthday (Project)!
Based on extensive research, it was found that most if not all orphanages across South Africa celebrate orphan’s birthdays in the simplest most common way of just buying a birthday cake due to financial constraints.
This special project aims to not only teach orphans about self-appreciation but also aims to make them feel valued, appreciated and loved by helping them celebrate their special day by taking them out to the movies, spa, bowling, ice skating, meeting and greeting people they look up to etc and most of all, making it memorable.
This project is all about making one feel like they are cared about, they matter, and most importantly it aims to make them feel like they belong, even if its just for one day.
HEART OF A HOMELESS PERSON:
"We are all on our own individual journeys. We all long to belong to something, somewhere or to someone. Homelessness is not just caused by substance abuse, the physically handicapped or people with mental illness, it can happen to anyone. Most times than not, people do drugs to numb their pain, no one wakes up and decide to become a junkie from now on till the end of their lives, it happens by default. Life is painful, we don’t deal with it the same way, for others, the solution is to commit suicide when their tired of depression and see no way out, for others it is to take drugs to numb the pain. All they need is for someone to say I’m here, I care”. No-one should be homeless, affordable housing should be a right and not a privilege”. - Anonymous
Elderly / Old Age Project!
This project is all about remembering, and appreciating every single senior citizen all over the world. Nobody should feel like they have been forgotten. Our intention is to make every vulnerable person feel loved and that they are cared about.
HEART OF A SENIOR CITIZEN:
“Most of us suffer from various psycho-social and environmental problems including the feeling of neglect, loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted in a family as well as the society - We just want to be loved like everybody else does.” - Anonymous
