Summary

Topsy's mission is to empower families & communities in severe poverty affected by Aids & HIV. Support to both vulnerable children and their families is offered through multiple programmes including our Orphaned & Vulnerable Children and Early Childhood Development Programmes that support children through medical, psychosocial, nutritional, educational & spiritual activities. Topsy serves the community by providing food parcels, food gardens and medical & social services to those most in need.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children are a particularly vulnerable group within severely poverty stricken communities, There are over 4 million orphans in South Africa, about half of whom have lost one or both parents to AIDS, with the majority of these children living in child-headed households or with elderly relatives. These vulnerable families, who have little or no access to education, healthcare & social services are Topsy's beneficiaries. Topsy's serves 5 impoverished communities in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provide holistic support to Early Childhood Development Centres and centres for children with disabilities in the communities; Provide monthly food parcels to the vulnerable families; Provide a sustainable food source for the community through the planting of vegetable gardens; Provide vulnerable children with school uniforms and stationery; Provide at risk school learners with additional support with their learning; Provide Social support, assisting with accessing government grants and care.

Potential Long Term Impact

We are contributing to building a future generation of well adjusted children in poverty stricken, rural communities in the hopes that they reach their full potential.
