Our longer term ambition is to train families, communities, churches and other organisations in the Family Home Care Model, so that together we can effectively provide quality family care to the vast quantity of children who have no family.
With the immense scope and scale of the orphan emergency in Sub-Saharan Africa, we recognize that Oasis Haven alone will not be able to reach all abandoned children with the time and resources available. Additionally, we are very clear that we are not the only solution to this problem. We are called to be a part of the solution, as all people both in South Africa and around the globe take responsibility for this burning issue.
We are convinced that “Family” is the key ingredient to effectively dealing with the orphan emergency. This means sharing about and advocating for adoption, equipping and preparing families to adopt and training other organisations in facilitating adoptions for the children in their care. In addition, we are confident that the basic principles involved in the Family Home Care Model can be applied to almost any child-care scenario and are committed to effectively implementing the model.
