Assisting some dynamic women, to help those in need.
Dynamic Women for Children was founded in 2008 and are taking care of twenty-eight families that live in appalling conditions.
Since 2012, twenty-two of the fifty children from age three to sixteen are learners in pre-primary and primary school. In October 2012, Dynamic Women for Children opened their very own Private Care Centre directly next to the school were after school care is given to these learners.
Dynamic Women for Children was founded in 2008. They are taking care of twenty-eight families that live in appalling conditions.
Since 2012, twenty-two of the fifty children from age three to sixteen of Plot 177 and Plot 101 are learners in pre-primary and primary school Kameelfontein. These children are transported to and from school. In October 2012, Dynamic Women for Children opened their very own Private Care Centre directly next to the school. After school care is given to the twenty-two learners. They receive a balanced lunch and can play for half an hour where after it is time for homework. A team of teachers volunteered to help the kids with their homework free of charge. At 16:00 it is bath time and 17:00 another meal is served before they are taken back to their parents.
Our focus is to get the children out of their impoverished circumstances and show them what a “normal” life is. We try to give them as much exposure as possible to get them to turn their heads and break the cycle of poverty.
During school holidays all fifty kids are full time at the care centre. We provide them with three meals per day. Take them on field trips and keep them constructively busy. The volunteer teachers help the children on an individual basis to get their schoolwork up to date and in line with the school curriculum.
Some of the learners that must enroll in high schools within the next two years will be taken to different schools and will stay part of the care centre until they complete their schooling.
Dynamic Women for Children are dependent on donors to operate the care centre. The biggest expenses are food and fuel to transport the children. Our current vehicle is too small to transport all the children. We desperately need a 30+ seated bus.
Currently the care centre property is not owned by Dynamic Women for Children. It is made available to us for use. My dream is to buy the property and then build a boarding school. I believe that if we can get the children out of there impoverished circumstances they will have a better chance to become independent, successful adults.
The successes of this project up to now have been phenomenal. All glory to God without whom Dynamic Women for Children will not be where we are today.
