Summary

TLC is committed to upholding the value of quality over quantity. Founded in 1993 to address the serious need for quality childcare for abandoned children in South Africa, we are registered to care for up to 32 infants and children under the age of 3 years old (upon admission). Our vision is to ensure that each child is placed into a responsible "forever family", whilst we provide the best possible care and every opportunity for them to develop to their full potential. But we need your help!

Challenge

Not only are South Africans struggling against an unrelenting social crisis, which has lead to hundreds of thousands of abandoned infants and children, but also against a drastically declining economy. Sadly, financial income of many social service, nonprofit organisations such as TLC have been severely affected by this. Many of which have been forced to close down, leaving children stranded. We are working hard to build our donor base by promoting sustained giving of small monthly amounts.

Solution

Through TLC Adopt-A-Cot we are looking to our global community for much needed support in building a sustainable monthly income through a small monthly pledge made by many individuals. This approach will go a long way in giving us some financial stability and improve our long term prospects of becoming financially self-sustainable. Our hope is to have TLC Adopt-A-Cot campaign fully cover our monthly costs of caring for all our beneficiaries by the start of 2018.

Long-Term Impact

Having the full annual costs of providing quality care to the babies in our charge funded would mean we are able to focus on our goal of becoming a Centre of Excellence. We hope to become a model to other children's homes in South Africa so that together we can effectively address the issues facing the forgotten children in our country and help them to thrive as resilient adults. Once realized we hope to extend our impact into the community by addressing the challenges of expectant mothers.
