Give Them Hope Foundation
One hot summer afternoon, Pinky visited a woman who was seriously sick and in pain caused by the HIV infection. Her relatives had abandoned her and her three children. Moved by compassion, Pinky organised for an ambulance to take her to the hospital. With no one to care for the children, she took the three, with the youngest less than a year old under her care. A few months later the woman died. Pinky continued to look after the children in her home. This was the start of the Give Them Hope shelter.
Tebogo Mare was a child from a teenage mother who did not want anything to do with the child. He was abandoned with his grandma, who later died from HIV & AIDs. Lerato Zwane's mother died of AIDS. Her step-father frustrated her life till she ran away to the safety and security of the Shelter. These are just two of the children that the Shelter is taking care of day to day.
The Shelter works with children who are HIV positive, orphaned, abandoned and those live with poor or sick parents who cannot take care of them. They ensure children grow up with the right to food, clothing and shelter, the right to have healthy bodies and minds.
We CAN FOUNDATION (WCF) supports the Shelter with monthly financial contribution. You too can make a difference in the lives of these young ones either through WCF or direct to Give Them Hope. Their bank details are;

AJOFA SPECIAL EDUCATION FOUNDATION FOR THE DEAF
In 1987 an estimated 110,532 deaf children were in Nigeria (Christian Mission for Deaf) which accounted for 49% of the total West African Countries statistics. Hearing impaired children faces a lot of challenges from early in life; the ability to communicate with people, lack of access to adequately resourced education facilities contributes to the high level of illiteracy, isolation and societal marginalisation which limits opportunities for a brighter future.
All children have the right to education to give them the necessary numeracy and literacy for a successful life. Ajofa Special Education Foundation For The Deaf founded by Mr Francis Ajomiwe, a hearing impaired man provide quality education; to ensure that the hearing impaired children acquire the ability to read and write well, get a vocational training thereby adding value to their lives.
