Where the money goes

Contributions to Home of Grace Care Centre are used for:

  • Food for the household
    This is our first priority.
  • Shelter – housing and utilities
    Not a glamorous expense, but it is essential for the children to have a roof over their heads.
  • Staff salaries
    Home of Grace staff include a manager, house mother, social worker, house father and cleaner/assistant cook. They also employ a security service.
  • Education costs
    Primary education is a basic human right under the Universal Declaration of Rights and a key element in the UN Millennium Development Goals. Secondary education develops the leadership in the community and improves employability. Funds are used specifically for

    • tuition and registration fees
    • examination fees
    • uniforms, including school shoes.
    • basic school supplies, such as a pencil and notebook
  • Clothing and footwear for the children
    Each child now has one change of clothes
  • Mattresses and blankets for the children
  • Medical care
    This includes preventative vaccinations, hospital care for seriously ill children, malaria medication and emergency surgery and treatment after serious accidents.
  • Self-sufficiency
    Agricultural projects for self-sufficiency include chickens, goats and vegetable gardening on their land.
