The Lonely Road Foundation empowers a grassroots, community-based response to critical issues for children in rural and underprivileged communities across South Africa who have been orphaned and made vulnerable.
Launched as an activation agency, The Lonely Road initiates projects, links to existing support programmes and creates a sustainable environment for rural and underprivileged communities to build their own capacity to care for their Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC).
Through a commitment to working in partnership with existing organizations and stakeholders (such as Government, NGOs, Corporate Companies, Funding Institutions and Volunteers), The Lonely Road Foundation provides underprivileged communities with:
- Legal support
- Financial support
- Operational support
We strive to gather resources and explore sustainable methods to actively support the growing number of child-headed households.
What We Do
We work hard to motivate and support rural and underprivileged communities to access the resources that will assist them in managing the health and well-being of their orphans and vulnerable children by helping to meet their basic needs and human rights.
These basic needs form our 4 Priority Areas:
- Food & Water
