Our primary work is our Children’s Center where we care for children from impoverished and vulnerable single-parent families, many of whom are without any community, family support or resources.
Children who are left alone at home or on the streets are brought into a place where they are safe, well cared for and loved. Our staff provide care, nutritious meals, hygiene care, help with school resources, tutoring to support school work, positive role models, mentorship and plenty of fun. We also work closely with the children to provide spiritual and emotional support and stability.
We provide a safe environment for at-risk children so their single parent is able to study or find a suitable job. In many cases, this means preventing children from being abandoned to full-time orphanage care, while for others this means taking the children out of an Orphanage and moving them back home to live with their family. By welcoming children into CDL, we meet some of the most critical needs of our neighbourhood. The most vulnerable children now have what they need to thrive.
