Friends of NOAH
An Orphaned Generation
In South Africa alone, with a total population of ~50 million, there are a staggering 2.5 million orphaned children.
Can you imagine what a generation of orphaned children would look like in your community?
A sense of belonging and a loving community is arguably the most important force in a child's development. South African's have a word, "Ubuntu" that stands for this loving sense of community which they hold sacred.
Our goal is to strengthen "Ubuntu" by making it as easy as possible to keep children in their OWN communities with the extended family and neighbors who LOVE them, have KNOWN them since birth, and have a vested interest in who their children become when they grow up. Read more about why
"Arks of Care"
Working with local leaders, we help mobilize and train local volunteers and give the resources that allow the community itself to provede its children with daily meals, after school care, in-home bereavement counseling, help procuring government grants, computer classes, organized sports, arts classes, sustainable gardening, and more
You Can Help!
A gift of only $80 provides a child with an entire year of daily meals, after school care, in-home bereavement counseling, help procuring government grants, computer classes, organized sports, arts classes, sustainable gardening, and more!
