Rehoboth

Children's Village

Mission and vision

Rehoboth Children's Village cares for children that are either abandoned or orphaned and affected or infected by HIV/AIDS. Children are raised in a safe and loving home environment where their health is stabilized and controlled. Our vision is to grow children into role models for the future generation. As a fountain spurts out drops of water, so Rehoboth raises children and releases them into the world; as they land, each drop creates a ripple effect into its surroundings. By saving one life, we can influence the nation!

Vision

Caring for orphaned and abandoned children living with or affected by HIV/AIDS and raising them into mature role models.

Mission Statement

To create comprehensive care and supporting facilities (children's village) for a group of children affected or infected by HIV/AIDS who cannot be cared for within the community. The children's village provides a home-like environment with intensive care and treatment (spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and medical) throughout their lives.

Objective

The objective is to provide love and care for children who have been abandoned and cannot be placed in foster care or adoption. The number of HIV positive children being abandoned, with no one to care for them, is reaching alarming proportions. Instead of the hospital being their home, Rehoboth provides individual homes to care for the children. There are 15 specially designed homes with five children each. The children are cared for by a local housemother in order to create a normal family.
