Letting Little Stars Shine-Our Programme

The TSHEPANG “HAVE HOPE” Programme for OVC was established on the 1st March 2006.  It was initiated, through consultation with other stakeholders, by its current Director. She is a qualified social worker with more than 20 years’ experience in the child care field. She left her job as an Assistant Director, with one of the largest NGO’s in the Country, in order to serve the community of Princess. She was driven by the passion to help children in need and ensure that they are afforded opportunities as any other child within a home setting. Also, her aim was to support those children who have been traumatized, so that they realize the potential they have and work hard towards their aspirations and goals. It is important that these children do not focus on the now, which is obviously not pleasurable, but that they are given a chance to dream and to achieve.

The Tshepang Programme now serves 320 children.

 

Due to the different needs within the community, the Tshepang Programme realized the need to get more involvement with the families as well as the whole community. The Organization now also has a soup kitchen which runs twice a week, for 105 adults. This is particularly aimed at people who are on either TB or ARV treatment. The aim is to assist the beneficiaries to comply with their treatment and not make lack of food as an excuse for non – compliance.  Whilst doing this, the Programme still needs the beneficiaries not to be totally dependent on this service, but to realize that they are responsible for their own well-being, thus the soup kitchen is only for 2 days a week.
