Our After School Programme in Soshanguve
We have managed to reach almost 70 children every day With the growing HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in urban and rural communities, a number of child-headed households have emerged in Gauteng areas. Policies at both city, regional and national levels has excluded youth and children, those living in the streets and in the stigmatised or poverty-stricken communities. Most parents have died living their children without money for school to which has raised the school dropout rate. This is a challenge to the South African government which has to mobilise their resources in all areas and sectors of society to address the plight of child-headed households, youths and women in order to attain better social life.
