Give a Child a Family

#GCFExplains

Instead of being admitted to GCF's Child and Youth Care Centre, most babies and toddlers who have been removed from their parents/caregivers are welcomed by the organisation's 𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒅 𝑻𝒆𝒎𝒑𝒐𝒓𝒂𝒓𝒚 𝑺𝒂𝒇𝒆 𝑪𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒇𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒆𝒔 in the local communities.

In this way, the children can experience 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙚𝙣𝙫𝙞𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙨 where healthy attachments can be built. ❤️

Aah, Saturday morning sleeping in… I wish! I would love to do that, but just can’t, and I have never understood that until one day, not too long ago, I realised ‘𝒀𝑬𝑺!’

It’s because my father turned up the radio for the 7 o’clock news and it was family breakfast time! Thereafter we had work to do; mowing the lawn, tool girl for him when fixing his car, peeling quinces, guavas, peaches (for Africa!) for preserving and bottling the fruit from the garden. Don’t forget about washing the dog, and cars, and the list went on. Only then could I go do whatever was planned socially, after I had done my chores.

It made for 𝒈𝒐𝒐𝒅, 𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒈 𝒗𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒆𝒔 for me, and I continued with some less ‘strictness’ in my own family. It never harmed me and it was not child labour, as so many children would want to label it.

Chores help children:
• develop life skills,
• learn responsibility and self-reliance,
• teaches teamwork,
• reinforces and maintains cleanliness,
• makes for strong work ethic,
• with time management.

Ensure chores are:
• age appropriate,
• not perfection required,
• fun,
• done together,
• not gender based.

We have some artistic children at GCF. Every other week, new art is up for display for all to see. This time they include May’s theme - "🅲🅷🅸🅻🅳 🅿🆁🅾🆃🅴🅲🆃🅸🅾🅽". Take a close look at the picture and see what all parents and caregivers should know to make children feel safe.

Great work, you are indeed “𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒖𝒏𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒆” that shines bright on what all children need! 🌞

Would you like to support the work GCF does in connection with vulnerable children and families, why not become a 𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙝𝙡𝙮 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧?
