Enriching the lives of children in need
Nelson Mandela when talking about children in need, once equated the world to a human body. He said in the same way a human body cannot deny the impact of gangrene on a limb, the world cannot ignore the plight of so many orphans in Africa. To do so is not just immoral, it imperils us all.
Mandela’s powerful analogy stands for why we must raise awareness of any situation in which children are put at risk or left alone to fend for themselves.
For meaningful, lasting action and change to take place, people across the globe must know and understand the issue.
CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to enrich the lives of children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors, through Small Acts, that can bring hope, support and comfort.
Spread the word
The second, and equally important, is to spread the message to the world through our growing community of Small Actors (those who commit to act on the children’s behalf), about those who run the grassroots organisations that look after the children in need.
Recognition and support
We also raise awareness by highlighting the extraordinary work being done around the world by these organisations, who with little assistance or presence, go to great lengths to help their children not only survive but thrive. They deserve our recognition and support.
Organisations like BlueBell Orphanage, Knit-a-square South Africa, HUG, Gomo Foundation, Reality Gives, Wise Choices for Life, and ZANE demonstrate how much unheralded work is being done by selfless, dedicated volunteers worldwide for the children.
We continue to develop relationships with organisations all over the world and raise awareness of their work by sharing their stories here and on social media.
You can help us in this work by reading and sharing these Small Acts as we publish them, and joining us in our Small Activists community group on Facebook. Follow us too on our Facebook Page and Instagram feed with your networks.
A mighty wall of ideas, one brick at a time
The Small Acts we identify and promote hold enormous promise; they have the potential to connect and empower through creative problem solving. They can also ignite the energy, enthusiasm and compassion of young minds awakening to notions of injustice of all kinds.
Through the children, families and whole communities can be drawn in to creating small but intersecting ripples of change on the face of this vast disaster.
Just as a wall becomes structurally strong once hundreds or thousands of bricks are laid, one at a time, our community of Small Actors grows with every ‘share’, ‘like’ or ‘follow’ you give us. Each one helping us to raise awareness, spread the word and ultimately fulfil a Small Act that will have a Big Impact on the life of a child in need.
