Jochebed children's village
Jochebed Children’s Village consists of 16 homes, and offers a safe haven and a second chance for children in need.
The housing consists of 16 individual homes, each designed to accommodate a family of two-house parents and six children. The design and construction of Jochebed allows us to provide a safe and nurturing “forever home” environment for up to 96 children.
Each home is headed by a foster parent or parents, and is designed to function as a regular household and family environment would, including all of the daily elements that so many of us take for granted.
On returning home from school, the children can share their day’s adventures with their foster parents and spend the afternoon swimming, visiting the farm animals, going for walks or riding their bicycles. Weekends are spent as a family, and our children enjoy treats and outings like going for a Wimpy milkshake, just as any child does!
Each house is furnished and decorated in a homely fashion, and has a kitchen, dining room and lounge. The children all have their own bed, toys and cupboard for their belongings, and they are encouraged to decorate their bedroom area as their own.
At African Blessings, we believe it is imperative to ensure that each child grows up in an environment where they are loved, supported and above all else, can feel safe and secure. It is our aim to have all 16 homes functional as soon as possible so that The Village can provide for even more at-risk children.
African Blessings is 100% reliant on donations from our sponsors and the general public, without which the work we do would not be possible.
We pray and faithfully believe that we will be blessed with the opportunity to expand our work and help more children in need.
