More than 60 children live in the Children’s Village already – despite having opened its gates for the street children only in 2012. With eight occupied houses the Children’s Village will have reached its full capacity by the beginning of 2015. However, there are constant operating costs which face us with many challenges.
By finding innovative and sustainable solutions we try to minimize those costs. For example, due to our solar collectors we were successful in reducing the electricity bills distinctly. Instead of going to the market many vegetables can be harvested freshly by the house parents in our own kitchen garden. We farm our own organic meat in our pig breeding and fish in our pond. Nevertheless, we are only just at the beginning, more children lead to higher expenses. Thus, we are still dependent on your support.
With a MARIPHIL sponsorship you will support the Children’s Village directly. You will give us the opportunity to invest the money where we need it the most. We will be able to bear the costs for food, clothing, medical emergencies, school material, repair work, etc. With this kind of support you will help us actively to give children who used to live in the streets a chance to escape the circle of poverty.
Become a sponsor of MARIPHIL Children’s Village and allow street children to have a save and worry-free home. You will become a member of MARIPHIL Children’s Village-family and if you want to, we will inform you about the events and developments in the Village.
