WINDHOEK, DEC. 13 – As part of ploughing back to the community, Tsumeb own youth and journalist for Informante newspaper, Maria David has a plan to host TOV HIV/AIDS Orphans and Vulnerable Children for a Christmas lunch.
According to David, the aim of the lunch is to have fun with the children while at the same time ensuring that they are not forgotten.
“It has always been a thing of mine; to cook for the old people in our area and treat them for lunch at our house, but this time we are planning to have a day with children at TOV,” said David.
She explained that giving back has been always her mission, as her grandmother always told her that giving a little goes a long way, and it does not matter how small one gives, what matters is that it comes from the heart.
TOV Center provides HIV/AIDS prevention programmes through life skills and teaching the community about the danger of HIV/AIDS.
The center is a haven for HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children, and it’s presently involved in providing guardianship to vulnerable children and orphans. The caretakers provide the children with three meals a day, seven days a week.
They also offer spiritual and emotional support to the children and provide them with residential care (children home) as a last resort.
They center also partners with other social welfare organizations working with HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children, in hope to provide community and individual care for all HIV/AIDS orphans and vulnerable children in Namibia.
The Centre aims to empowering children through education, which remains their main objective, and teaching them to become masters of their own destiny. – firstname.lastname@example.org
