"It takes a community to raise a child" - never have words been more true. Over 2 million children* in South Africa are AIDS orphans. Many more children live on the margins of society because of extreme poverty. Without working as a community to care for these children, they will likely face futures of hunger, sickness, and unemployment. In the corner of the Dominican campus, 80 orphaned and vulnerable children receive pre-school education, meals, and care from the Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation (KNF). When they leave KNF after Grade R, these children enter grade 1 at local government schools, many of which have sub-standard education. Their future becomes uncertain. We would like to offer 20 KNF children the opportunity of a lifetime: a Dominican education. Your support—combined with the support of our entire Dominican family—can make this possible. Please consider a gift of R50 or R100 a month today.
