  • Describe in detail what your Organisation does:

Children of the Dawn was set up in May 2002 to support and strengthen rural community initiatives which focus on caring for HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa. Children of the Dawn’s goal is to give back a future to these affected children. By applying Children of the Dawn’s model, rural communities are given the financial and technical means to care for their children with a long-term, sustained and holistic approach, looking at the whole spectrum of children’s needs. At Children of the Dawn, we believe in community responses to the challenge of orphaned and vulnerable children who are cared for within their extended family or community settings. We, South African rural communities, believe we have the will, the power and the love to raise a generation of saved children!
