Hope for Rehoboth
Why Rehoboth, Namibia?
Namibia is one of the least populated countries on the planet and is situated north west of South Africa. With just over 2 million people in a country much larger than the UK, over 50 percent live below the poverty line. The gap between the rich and the poor is one of the world's largest; poverty amongst plenty. The impact of HIV and difficult social issues means that there are many orphans and vulnerable children.
Rehoboth is a town of 21,000 inhabitants located in the centre of the country and is home to some of the world's poorest people. Hope for Rehoboth is a UK based charity that funds and supports this crucial work with children.
Kids First, Kid's Club (Bridge of Hope)
Started in 2011 the club provides an after school programme for orphans and vulnerable children in Rehoboth aged between 4 and 16.
Children come twice a week and for around two and a half hours a session. A range of activities are laid on for the children by a dedicated group of volunteers. These include arts and craft, team games, homework support, life skills, cultural identity, HIV awareness, praise and worship, projects within the town and emotional support.
The volunteers ensure that every child receives food and drink. For some this will be the only meal of the day.
The club currently reaches out to near 100 children of all backgrounds but at this time does not have it's own building.
