GIVING & SPONSORSHIP
Make A Difference Now! Support A Child Today!
The Safe Haven Children Care Centre Orphanage is committed to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support of society’s youth who are orphaned, outcast, homeless, neglected or otherwise taken advantage of. These children have come from a variety of backgrounds and have not had the best start in life. Many come from broken homes, have lost one or both parents, and have been living in horrible poverty. The Safe Haven Children Care Centre Orphanage envisions providing a home and an education for these children, giving them opportunities that they may not have had otherwise. Any one time donation or $10 a month will make a real difference to the children in Royeama Village. Children whose families have severely limited incomes often drop out of school much more to speak of orphans whose parents are deceased or otherwise unable to care for them. Their futures are as limited as their educations. This money goes towards feeding, clothing, and enabling these children to flourish and grow. If children are sponsored, the orphanage will be able to continue to expand and develop and provide these children with an even better start in life. Commitment to support is what these children need. If you would like to make a difference in one of these orphans’ lives, please respond today. You can select one of the following two ways to sponsor a child or to give to the general work of the mission of Safe Haven Children Care Centre, a religious non-profit organization that works to improve the physical and spiritual lives of orphaned and street children, and children from impoverished families. We also envision having a SHCCC Scholarship Program consisting of two parts:
1. A fund for designated (High School or Upper Secondary School ) Scholarships.
2. An emergency or supplementary Scholarship Fund. Designated Scholarships of up to $ 5,000 per student are awarded to selected students, ages 15 to 18, for four years higher learning. With recommendations from teachers and administrative staff of the regional Department of Education, the SHCCC Scholarship Committee identifies students who are completing their compulsory education and do not have the funds to complete high school. Funds will be deposited with the student’s school account at the beginning of every semester or academic year, and managed by students with supervision by designated teachers. The progress of each scholarship recipient will be carefully tracked and monitored by the Scholarship Committee members. Emergency Scholarships are awarded to students on a needs basis to assist students who have emergency needs in completing the school year or who cannot afford to participate in enrichment programs such as computer literacy, sports, art or music. As with families all over the world, unexpected emergency situations do arise with families in the rural provinces of Freetown. Death or disability of one or both parents, illness, family crises such as desertion by the wage earner are unfortunately not uncommon. Without assistance, the children of these families may have to drop out of school. Once a child leaves formal education, the chances of her or him returning to school are severely diminished. As little as $10 per month will keep a child in school On behalf of the Board of Directors, the Safe Haven Children Care Centre Scholarship Committee works with identified school boards to provide assistance in time of need, whether to high school students in Designated Scholarship program or with children of all ages in the Emergency Scholar Program. The members of this Committee are:
Archbishop Daniel Browne, Chairman
Mrs. Barbara I. Browne President
Mrs. Bernadette Kamara Vice President
Senior Evangelist Gazie Fackie Managing Director
Mrs. Hawa Mary Sesay Director
