Fontein Social Care Center
Total donations: $51,506 | Partnership: 2011 - 2016
The Fontein Social Care Center has an ambitious mission to help orphaned and vulnerable children in Swaziland.
In an area where hunger, poverty, and illness leaves many children without strong family units, the Fontein Center aims to provide two meals a day to children, as well as a daycare for the youngest and legal assistance, health care services, and safety within its walls.
Though only 40 children are enrolled in the daycare, the Center feeds over 450 local children a day—no small feat without government assistance to purchase food.
Grand Circle Foundation has helped fund roof and window repairs, a covered outdoor seating area, construction of a new kitchen and toilets, upgraded the electrical and added solar heating, renovated the second building so that it too can be used and added playground equipment so that the Center can continue to grow and serve the community.
