Child-centric intervention and trauma-informed care to help children heal in loving homes.
After-school academic support, meals, and personal development.
Between teacher strikes and Covid-19, children’s education has been in a state of chaos since 2018. We bridge the gap through our after-school tutoring center. We take a two-way approach and engage students’ families in our family strengthening program as well.
Short-term care for children in crisis.
Formerly called Grandma’s House
When children have to be removed from unsafe situations by government services, we provide love and protection through our short-term emergency shelter. We work with the children and their families or networks toward a safe long-term family solution.
We also have a strong emphasis on counseling and healing the wounds of trauma inflicted on our children. We are one of the only homes that provides this service. In fact, we often have children in the community referred to our organization just for counseling.
Empowering family preservation and reunification.
When families face overwhelming circumstances, we come alongside them and provide emergency support, counseling, and training so families can flourish and children are safe.
Providing paradigm-shifting training in Trauma-Informed Care.
We educate parents, community members, professionals, and government offices on how to understand and care for children who have experienced trauma and loss. This also prevents violence against children.
Family-Based Care Support
Providing assistance to orphanages interested in transitioning to permanent, safe family solutions.
Trust for Africa is the first children’s home in Lesotho to transition from a children’s home to permanent family solutions for children. Leading by example, we provide technical support to orphanages in Lesotho. We have joined a global movement that is listening to research, personal experience, and scripture that shows children grow best in families, not in orphanages.
