Child Welfare Programme
Every child dreams of going to school and making a better life for him or herself. Just like adults, children need support; they need a supportive environment in which they can fulfill their dreams. This is especially so for orphans, the poor and marginalised. By supporting children who have suffered tragic losses, IR through its CWP, is contributing to build up the next generation of teachers, entrepreneurs and leaders. The inclusion of poor orphans and marginalised children is not only a matter of social justice and the realisation of universal human rights; it is an essential investment in the future of society!
IR believes that talent and virtue should be nurtured in all children regardless of wealth or birth. No matter what we look like or where we come from or who our parents are, each child should have the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential. The hearts of small children are delicate organs. A cruel beginning in this world can mean that the heart of a hurt child can shrink and it becomes hard and pitted as the seed of a peach. Or, again, the heart of such a child may fester and swell until it is hurt by the most ordinary things.
