Building communities where children can grow and develop holistically is paramount to the reduction of poverty. For this reason we aim to implement programs that are child-focused, relationship-based and sustainable. We do this in two ways:  

1. Child centres

Funds are directed to a Salvation Army-operated centre, and used to ensure the children have access to education and what is required to access that education. This includes: 

Comprehensive academic curricula, meals whilst at the centre, health care (particularly for rehabilitation centres), Education of parents on the value of sending their children to school, Provision of uniforms and books for children.

Centre sponsorship offers a possibility for many children to benefit at a time and to benefit equally!

2. Child-centred development projects

These address multiple dimensions of a child’s well-being, focusing on building communities where children are safe and valued and the dignity and responsibilities of parents are reinforced. Young and old work together to tackle the root causes of poverty through:

  • Nearby clean water sources to reduce the time children (particularly girls) are travelling to collect water, thus enabling them to go to school
  • Toilets which reduce child illness and mortality
  • Literacy and numeracy classes to empower parents to support their child’s education 
  • Teachers’ training, children’s clubs and school equipment for extra-curricular activities
  • Micro-credit schemes, livestock provision and agriculture training as a source of income and nutritious food
  • Suitable facilities for those with disabilities
