Supporting Starlight Family Children
Starlight Family supports needy children from the local community in several ways:
Firstly fourteen of the most needy children are accommodated in a small children’s home that was completed in 2019 thanks to generous donations. These children have no one to look after them either because they are orphans or have only one parent who may be struggling to care for them. Many single parents struggle due to various problems for example losing a partner due to A.I.D.S and being HIV positive themselves. Also some of the children stay to attend the school and have respite from abusive home conditions. Donations help towards a child’s basic physical needs such as food, shelter, clothing, medical and education.
Secondly Starlight Family runs a charity school providing over 100 children from the local area basic primary level education and life skills. Starlight Family volunteers have a community outreach to make sure that the children from the most difficult and disadvantaged backgrounds have access to the school. Without the school these children would be unable to access any sort of education which is essential to help them create a brighter future. http://starlightfamily.org/about/school/
Thirdly Starlight Family runs an important project specifically aimed at helping adolescent girls who have specific areas of need including the provision of personal hygiene items.
