Project hosted by

Fortune Learners Centre is a project that was founded in year 2013 as a charity organization by 10 social workers from Kayole and Soweto slums who were working in various schools as untrained teachers. Their motivation was drawn by watching their former schools sending away vulnerable children from school due to lack of school fees. They thought how they could better the lives of these poor children who had resorted to begging in the streets.

The untrained teachers agreed to start a community centre to provide education, economic empowerment and HIV/AIDS education including psychological support to the orphans, vulnerable children and their caregivers. Fortune’s core areas are education, orphan support and protection, economic empowerment for older orphans and caregivers, volunteer/Internships, educational trips, sports HIV/AIDS and gender based violence awareness. The school hosts nearly 100 children from extremely poor backgrounds, aged between 3 and 12 years. The children attend classes from class 1 to 8. The school has seven teachers.

Project hosted by

The Ahero Community Resource Center is a project that was initiated by CIVS in collaboration with the local community in 2014 with an aim to build and strengthen the community’s capacity to be self-reliant and to improve their living standards. The Center has been collaborating with the local community in various development fields through diverse capacity-building programs support and services they offer. These programs include:

Early Childhood Education Program: The center runs a kindergarten with about 110 children aged between 3-7 years who are either vulnerable to poverty or orphans. The children get free education and meals at the school. In the evening they go back home where they stay with their caregivers or guardians.

ICT and Business Training: The center provides a community hub for access of free training in computer skills, especially to the youths. This enables them to have increased ICT knowledge and exposure in the evolving world of technology. The center has partnered with other stakeholders to provide Business training to the local people which is enabling them to start small business ventures to generate income.

The Model Farm: This is an agricultural-based unit that offers space for practical-oriented training in the field of agriculture and Agri-Business. This provides the community with an opportunity to learn how to carry out various best farming operations and practices of various crops to maximize food production and improve food security and income generation. This project encompasses greenhouses, open farm, poultry unit, fishponds, etc.

Water and Sanitation Program: This project is focused on the treatment of tap water to become clean and safe for all domestic use in the community. The water is therefore connected in homesteads and sold at an economy-friendly and affordable fee as part of the income-generating activity for the center.

Community advocacy program: The center has a training and events hall which provides a space for holding community-based open forums on a regular basis. The program enables the community members to directly engage with their community or political leaders and raise the issues and concerns affecting them. In turn leaders directly respond and put approach measures to act upon the arising issues and concerns. This promotes active citizenship.

Feeding Program: Occasionally, the center runs a feeding program for a select group of needy children during school days by offering breakfast and lunch. This helps to improve the concentration of the children in the class, to motivate them to attend to school and also helps to improve their nutritional health. The efficiency of the program depends on the availability of food and support resources.

Cassava Value Addition: CIVS has set up a cassava processing and storage facility which also serves as a training section for agricultural value addition. Additionally, the project has installed a bakery facility where nutritious cassava cakes and bread are prepared to boost the children's feeding program and generate income for the project.

Project hosted by

The Good Samaritan School is a formal community-based education institution that was established in the year 2004 in response to the needs of orphans and vulnerable children in Kayole. The School is under the Good Samaritan Children Centre Umbrella, an orphanage that started because of increased number of neglected and abandoned children around Kayole. It began with two children who had been abandoned by their parents. They were then rescued by the area district officials, and brought to the founder’s house who resides around Soweto slums. It hosts around 63 children both boys and girls.

The children have been orphaned for various reasons, although majority are due to the HIV epidemic, poverty and unwanted pregnancies. The children’s circumstances and histories are as different as their personalities, but now they have the optimism and opportunity for a more promising future. The dedicated caregivers at the project are working hard to provide the basics of life such as shelter, security and food. However, they are acutely aware that it is education, which can break the cycle of poverty.

The teachers and caregivers at the school are dedicated and loving, doing their best with the little available resources to heartily serve the children. At the very least, they are providing these children with a friendly family-like environment. The school runs from preschool to grade 8. The children are between the ages of 3 years to 13 years. They have been incorporated with others who are able to pay school fees in order to promote inclusivity. The school section project is available to volunteers while the orphanage has restricted entry.
