The need for the developing children’s villages is a concept that has become increasingly crucial in our South African society.  For this current generation to prepare a future generation that will be vibrant, loving and functional there is an immense task ahead.

To achieve this goal there has to be a concerted effort of various contributors who will liberate the tomorrow generation of complexes and complexities, of inferiorities and humiliation, and of all the other negative factors hanging over them like dark clouds.

Factually and statistically, there is much evidence screaming out at us to do something – to embark on a journey that will continue from this generation to the following generations until the goal is reached.

It is crucial that a model be created where a growing parentless generation can experience normal family life.  This proposal for children’s villages serves to give guidelines for such a caring environment.

Ethembeni Trust, through our network of reliable and credible contacts, together with churches relating to us, will have the skills and human resources to successfully maintain and run the villages once they have been erected.

Statistics of the 2000 population census held in the Republic of South Africa reveal that 43% (19,264,000 people) of our nation are 21 years of age and younger.  Taking this figure as a guide only, we could assume that the number of parentless children must be excessively high, as there are no accurate national figures in this regard.

 

this age group, 21 years and younger, there are frightening figures being aired concerning how many are orphaned due to AIDS.  This has placed a tremendous burden and strain primarily on government.  They are at their wits’ end on how to even begin to deal with this pandemic.

The role and the power of the Christian Church should not be ignored in these circumstances. Historically, the Church has always been characterised by kindness, generosity and sacrifice.

International social scientist, Rodney Stark, outlined some important beliefs and practices of the Christian Church:

  • Christians have a God who loves those who love Him.
  • The Christians’ God instructs those who love Him to love others, all others.
  • Christianity has a culture stripped of ethnicity and rank.
  • The God of the Christians is a merciful God who requires mercy.
  • In Christianity men are to love their wives as themselves.
  • Christians reject the practice of abortion and infanticide.
  • Christians love others, even at personal risk.

Here are some of the quality attributes given to human beings that need to be harnessed and used effectively for the benefit of society:

  • Creativity – the ability to make something new.
  • Language – the ability to communicate ideas through words.
  • Relationships – the ability to form interaction with people.
  • Moral choice – the ability to discern between constructive and destructive alternatives.

Ethembeni is based on these beliefs, practices and attributes.  We are confident that Ethembeni has a model that can be successful in bringing restoration and moral regeneration to our societies.
