GIVE A HOPE
„Children are the hope that flourishes anew, a project that is constantly realized, the future, which always remains open.”
Give A Future
Give A Future is a sponsorship program concentrated on fundraising for young people who – due to many circumstances – are in a difficult situation in life.
Tragedy in families, rejection or disability often enough push people outside a margin. People leave in poverty, hungry and thirsty. The lack of education and profession, takes away hope for a better future. As a result, they got stuck in the hopelessness and show to their descendants only this way of leaving.
Give A Future is an initiative that aims to stop this tragic order of events. We believe, that the world is full of people of a good will, who desire to change somebody’s life through a partial or full coverage of such costs as alimentation, accommodation, clothes and education for a young person from Madagascar or Rwanda.
Who is the help for?
I. The house for girls with difficult past: Akany Avoko Faravohitra in Antananarivo, in Madagascar
Currently it hosts 37 children including girls up to 18 years old and their children. Abandonment by a family, escape from a sexual abuse, prostitution or theft are the tragedies permanently inscribed in the biographies of these girls. Some of them can’t read or write. None of them has a learned profession thanks to which would be independent in a future. In addition, this place takes care of one, 3 years old, disabled child who requires physiotherapy.
II. The school for handicap children run by the Association Friends For Handicap in Rwanda located in Gatunda.
At the moment the school takes care of 100 children, mainly mute and deaf. It is a frequent situation that a child is brought to the school by an uncle or aunt as a disability in some parts of Rwanda is a reason to shame. In result, many don’t pay the yearly fee. Going forward, children at school are malnourished, live in a very humble conditions and the education is not adjusted to their disability. Children stay there for an entire school year. Adoption is personal. That means every sponsor or group of sponsors is (are) assigned to a particular child.
