AT LIV WE BELIEVE THAT A SOLID HOLISTIC EDUCATION PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN GIVING EVERY LIV CHILD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.
WE PLACE ORPHANED & VULNERABLE CHILDREN INTO A FAMILY ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY RECEIVE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
To make this possible, we are asking you to partner with us, in whatever way you are able. By investing in these young lives now, you are investing in their future, and the future of the many lives that they will touch. Journey with us and together we can change this nation, one educated child at a time.
Not everyone is called to build a village, or adopt a child, but everyone can link hands with others, and partner with us on this journey to change the lives of thousands of vulnerable children across our nation. LIV is expanding to other parts of South Africa. We are about CHANGE ON A LARGE SCALE to leave a legacy of hope for generations to come. LIV2Educate provides an opportunity for you to still be able to ‘adopt’ a child and follow his/her progress knowing that you are making a difference in that child’s life.
We encourage our children to dream about what they can be when they are grown up, to have a vision for their future. If you ask LIV children they will tell you with con dence what they want to be one day, including the president of the land, doctors, social workers, nurses, chefs, farmers, business men or women…the list is ongoing! By partnering with us to educate them you are helping them to step into the amazing life that we believe God has for each and every child.
The cost to educate each child at the LIV School is R2000 a month. We are asking you to contribute whatever you are able towards this cost. You will receive updates on your child of their achievements both in and outside of school, as well as photos and letters from your child. We believe this positive connection will encourage each child through into adulthood, just knowing that others out there are investing in their future. Together we can.
LIV is about FAMILY, teaching each child the value of family life in a loving home and village community, giving them a sense of belonging and purpose.
To quote Mandela: “The effects of HIV/AIDS demands a more sustained approach involving the community and a primary unit of care and nurturing, namely the family. A solid family environment is essential in paving the way towards the realisation of future dreams and aspirations of children.” Up to 6 children are placed in a LIV home with a suitable foster mother and where all their needs are taken care of including a healthy diet, clothing and medical care. The homes are built within a cluster of 8 to 10 houses, modelling the African village life. This helps them to find ‘home’ and close connection within the cluster and in the village itself.
Not everyone is called to build a village, or adopt a child, but every business, church, or group of friends could partner with LIV and adopt a LIV household. Many giving what they are able can change the lives of thousands of vulnerable children across our nation. LIV is already spreading their wings to Gauteng, Pretoria, Grahamstown, and the Western Cape to rescue and restore broken lives. We are about CHANGE ON A LARGE SCALE, raising future leaders and leaving a legacy of hope for generations to come.
The cost to run a LIV family is R10 000 a month. By becoming a LIV4Family partner you will receive updates on your family including photos, letters and their achievements. It is adoption from a distance and you can choose how much you want to be involved in their lives.
