GIVE PARTNER / ACRES OF LOVE
Working to Give, (GIVE) is devoted to the sanctify and quality of life for every human life during every stage of a person’s life. GIVE is committed to caring for orphans at any age,
internally displaced people, refugees, those in recovery transition, homes that care for both the elderly and widow.
Every child deserves a family. We offer children, once orphaned and
abandoned, a Forever Family Home. For the last 16 years we have
been providing love, dignity and individualized care as our team works
to meet the complex needs of children who have suffered trauma and
loss. We have been able to see the restoration of many children,
as their needs are met in a non-institutional, family setting.
WHO IS ACRES OF LOVE
Acres of Love is a global movement of compassionate individuals, private and public foundation,
churches, and corporations who have embraced an entrepreneurial approach to solving the orphan crisis
in South Africa. Moving away from the institutional model of orphan care, we work to enable and empower
children to thrive, not just survive.
WHAT ACRES OF LOVE DOES
The mission of Acres of Love is to rescue and care for children abandoned or orphaned due to AIDS,
abuse, and extreme poverty in South Africa. We also advocate for the rights of orphans to obtain world
class health-care, education, and nutrition. Our Forever Family Homes are recognized and licensed by
the RSA Department of Social Services and Population Development as Child and
Youth Centers Homes in South Africa.
WHO ACRES OF LOVE SERVES
We serve the most vulnerable population of children in South Africa. Many come to us on the brink of death,
with substantial emergency medical needs that require immediate proactive intervention.
A growing number of children are designated to us due to our ability to receive children with complex
special needs and provide them with the highest possible care. At this time over 38% of our children
have moderate to severe special needs.
I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.
- John 14:18
