Soweto Children’s Home

Why We Should do a shelter for Soweto Childrens Home

1.These are kids who have been brought together by a well-wisher and has housed them in the best way she knows how, being widowed herself is not easy to manage all alone, she is now retired and cannot manage to educate, feed, clothe and as well as give them a decent shelter.

2. They are also human beings and deserve to live happily, we do not need to be ruled by money, but we can use the money and the resources God has blessed us with to be a blessing to others; in this case, giving a decent shelter to these deserving children.

3. Put yourself in their position and then act in that moment. Say {God forbid} you pass on and your kids have to be taken to a Children's home, and it happens to be the Soweto one, would you be happy with their lifestyle there? The kids are just victims of circumstances, circumstances like parents who passed on due to HIV and AIDS, of fathers who sired them and refused to take responsibilities, and of many other life tragedies that rendered them homeless. We can ease their pain and agony, we can be part of their success story.

4. God brought us here to this planet to be proper human beings and help the poor and vulnerable and that's why we at Optiven Group have this burden to help these kids, it will be a great pleasure to have you on board as we fulfill the Scriptures,
