Children own the future!
»Children need our special attention, because they are our future.«
(Sir Peter Ustinov, Ustinov Stiftung)
This quote from Sir Peter says a lot. The babies, children and youth of Phelisanong are one example for a generation which will handle the upsides and downsides of life differently. Most of them experience this kind of care and attention as an outstanding model for life in their community centre. That way they learn to pass on these values. The spirit of charity becomes alive here.
The-wright-home‘s partners of networking assume – everyone in his own way – responsibility for this future! Thank you very much!
Pallium – research and support for social projects
Pallium e.V. our sister foundation in Gießen is aimed at helping people in Africa who are – mainly because of diseases – in situations of need. Pallium supports African initiatives financially and in non-material ways as well as by placing volunteers. Besides financing already running projects, Pallium does also provide aid in individual cases for people in difficult situations.
With the help of donations, the foundation currently supports two initiatives: The new orphanage and the Havana Soup Kitchen.
Yes we care! foundation
The foundation’s purpose is the promotion of children in Southern Africa, mainly in the Kingdom of Lesotho. These children need our special support, because they are very hard hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Many have lost their parents to Aids. Since Lesotho is one of the poorest countries in the world, it cannot counteract the financial impact of this disaster.
Yes we care! e.V. decided to support two schools in Pitseng, Lesotho.
