SOS IMPLEMENTS FOSTER CARE INTO THEIR VILLAGES TO STRENGTHEN THE SENSE OF FAMILY FOR THESE CHILDREN. FOSTER CARE IS A SERVICE FOR CHILDREN WHO CANNOT LIVE WITH THEIR CUSTODIAL PARENT(S) OR GUARDIAN(S) FOR SOME PERIOD OF TIME. IT IS INCREASINGLY COMMON IN SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES. INTENDED TO BE SHORT-TERM, ITS FOCUS IS ON RETURNING CHILDREN HOME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE OR PROVIDING THEM WITH A PERMANENT ALTERNATIVE. HOWEVER, A FOSTER FAMILY CAN IN SOME CASES ALSO OFFER PERMANENT ALTERNATIVE CARE. SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES’ SUPPORT OF FOSTER CARE DIFFERS ACROSS COUNTRIES. IN SOME PLACES FOSTER PARENTS ARE EMPLOYED BY OUR ORGANIZATION, SUCH AS IS THE CASE IN QWA QWA, SOUTH AFRICA, HOME TO A COMMUNITY-BASED FOSTER CARE PROGRAM.GIVEN THE LARGE NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN RURAL AREAS WHO HAVE LOST FAMILY MEMBERS TO AIDS, IN 2001, SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES, TOGETHER WITH THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES, STARTED LOOKING INTO COST-EFFECTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE WAYS TO OFFER MORE CHILDREN A HOME. AS A RESULT, FOUR FOSTER FAMILIES NOW LIVE STRONGLY INTEGRATED IN THE COMMUNITY IN HOUSES CONSTRUCTED IN LINE WITH LOCAL BUILDING AND SERVICE STANDARDS.

HOME OF HOPE
3 FAIRBRIDGE ROAD, TABLE VIEW, SOUTH AFRICA (PHONE: 011 27 21 556 3573)
Mission: To support vulnerable children and families experiencing various hardships, including Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), with a holistic child-centered approach, to help them reach their optimal potential in becoming contributing and socially repsponsible members of society.
Home of Hope runs a cluster foster scheme in Table View, Phoenix and Milnerton. The objective of this project is to ensure that children live in an environment where they can be nurtured holistically to develop to their full God-given potential.The foster homes mimic as close as is possible a family unit with love and care-giving from a foster mother and ‘siblings’. They provide a stable and solid foundation giving the child a brighter future, and a fair chance of growing up to become a socially responsible member of society – breaking the cycle of abuse.The Home of Hope supported children who have remained in our care long term are growing up quickly and their progress has been remarkable. The development and growth of each child has been inspiring, especially those with special needs. We recognize that if any child is given a stable, loving, supportive family and home environment they will flourish. We realize what a wonderful opportunity we have to make a difference in the lives of these children who are powerless against their offenders, and are unable to provide for themselves.It is not always possible to find individual foster families for each child, coupled with the challenges of the HIV/ aids epidemic facing SA, as well as dealing with children that are affected by FASD (Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder). The Western Cape is one of the areas with the highest percentage of FASD in the world. We believe the solution to reducing this high incidence of FASD lies in working with the affected families.
Started in 2006, Inami Creche (a Daycare Center in a township outside Durban) provides love, food, shelter and basic pre-school education for roughly 50 infants and kids aged 7 and under – kids who are either orphaned by AIDS and being raised by older siblings, or kids of single impoverished mothers – many of whom are young school girls. This special place allows mothers and older siblings to go to school or work – whilst keeping the young kids safe fed, warm and safe from harm.
