Trellidor sponsors children's village security barriers

Trellidor has sponsored burglar proofing and security gates for the first three of 25 planned new homes for children left destitute by AIDS in the Shongweni Valley.  The homes are nearing completion, with occupation expected at the end of November, and Trellidor is committed to sponsoring the rest of the homes as they’re built.

“These homes are part of the non-profit ‘Ingane Yami Children’s Village’ project initiated by Kloof Harvest Church in an effort to drastically improve the lives of 150 children in the area.  They will be a permanent home for these children, creating real families in real communities,” explained Trellidor Brand Manager Bianca Broughton.

The security barriers were specially designed to fit into the design of the homes and include retractable barriers on some bedroom area windows to serve as an alternative escape route in the event of an emergency.

Broughton said that children are the most vulnerable members of our society, with the abandoned and orphaned more defenceless than most.  “We feel privileged to be able to sponsor security barriers to keep these children safe in their new homes at Ingane Yami.”

Generous donations have allowed village project manager and pastor at Kloof Harvest Church, Scott Hamilton to ensure that sound, sustainable homes are built.  The architect designed houses make the most of the natural light in the valley, and each dwelling has solar heating and rain water tanks. 

The homes are being built on 30 acres bought for this purpose.  Each house is 100m² with a living area, bedrooms and a bathroom for six children and their carefully selected and trained mother.  When the project is complete it will include a community hall, clinic, pre-school, director’s home, recreation centre, administration and food distribution centre and a sports field, which is already underway.

“The mothers’ role is to ensure that the children’s basic needs are met in a loving, nurturing environment, instilling a sense of security and belonging from their early years into independent adulthood.  They’re trained to care for children with compromised social backgrounds and to help them regain their dignity and value for life,” said Scott.
