Supporting Orphans & Vulnerable Children

Our Charity, Our Community

Why Rehoboth, Namibia?

Namibia is one of the least populated countries on the planet and is situated northwest 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 center 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.

Bridge of Hope Kinder-Garten

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.  

Supporting Orphans & Vulnerable Children 

Child's Play

Volunteers provide a safe environment for the most vunerable children, encouraging them to engage in arts and craft but impotantly, team games.

Education

Support is provided for homework, but more importantly volunteers help with life skills, cultural identity and HIV awareness.

Care & Welfare

To help develop and nuture the children socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. To provide a safe, secure and sustainable environment.

The story so far

Milly Bock had a vision to create something which could reach out to the vast number of orphans and vulnerable children within her community. Milly opened up an after school club in 2011, in her home town of Rehoboth, allowing children an alternative to being on the streets. With no funding and no premises Milly grew her vision from nothing. The club quickly grew in numbers to near 100 children meeting together in a church hall. 

 

In 2013, two of the now trustees “Catherine and Matthew” went out to visit Milly to see for themselves what the project was doing. Seeing that Milly and her husband were funding the whole idea themselves raised questions as to how this project could be sustainable.  Milly wanted to create a safe place for these children where they could be fed and nurtured.

 

This prompted the birth of the charity!
