The objective of the project is to provide an emotionally secure environment for raising children orphaned as a result of the HIV /AIDS pandemic.
- When a Christian Congregation contacts Saint Peter's Child Care with a desire to start a 'Special' Foster Care project, the two parties get together to form a local committee and sign a letter of understanding.
- Potential foster mothers are identified by Saint Peter's Child Care, and arrangements for their screening and training are made with the help of Child Welfare.
- Saint Peter's Chilld Care then secures and equips a place of residence for the new family.
Child Welfare selects the children for placement with foster mothers.
Each foster mother accepts up to five children, the ages ideally resemble the age spread in a normal family. A new family is then created.
- Saint Peter's Child Care and the Christian Congregation then accepts the responsibility of looking after all the needs of the children. This is done by securing funds, ensuring that the children are clothed, receive schooling, have a nutritional diet and medical care.
In this way, homes are created within suburban communities to promote healthy development of children in a normal environment, to afford them the opportunity to live a happy life and for each to develop his or her full potential.
