With the heightened cost of day to day life and supporting basic needs. Boys in need international require the help of South African and international donors to survive.
Here are some of the projects that require funding.
BACK HOME PROGRAMME
Seeks to rehabilitate the homeless young men in the streets. This is done by actively engaging with the homeless young men and their relatives. This needs to culminate in us being able to reconnect them with their communities and families. We help them in drug abuse rehabilitation and assist in starting self help projects to generate income in their communities. Some of these projects are poultry, carpentry, metal working and horticulture.
INNER CITY SOUP KITCHEN
Provides a meal for the thousand’s homeless young men in the streets during the harsh winter in Johannesburg. We provide them with soup and bread so that they feel warm as they brave the winter nights in the open.
This is a gender-based violence campaign mainly targeted at men in the taverns and workplace. It seeks to educate the men on the negative impact of gender-based violence. Taverns are an ideal place to carry out the campaign because it is estimated that a lot of gender-based violence cases are due to alcohol and more over men congregate in these places. And if they do not consume alcohol, we target them at the work place. The campaigns seek to highlight to the men that they are the protectors of their families and need to take a leading role in that regard rather than abusing women and children in homes.
BOYS TO MEN PROJECT
The project seeks to assist HIV/aids infected adolescent boys in their transformation to adulthood. Closely working with the ministry of health, hospitals and local community leaders to locate these young men. Helping with school funding, basic daily needs and some counselling if it is required.
GENDER BASED VIOLENCE SCHOOL OUT REACH PROGRAMMES
In order to win the battle against g.b.v we need to start at the grass roots. Hence it is very important to conduct awareness programs at schools. The school children are educated on the negative effects on gender-based violence. Our volunteers carry out these programs in schools continuously when schools are opened. The target age group is 12 to 16 years.
