The Lonely Road Foundation

The Lonely Road Foundation is a South African development programme that aims to improve the lives of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC’s) in underprivileged communities.

The Lonely Road Foundation
– is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO)
– focuses on community-driven support.
– aims to create the benchmark global platform for childcare and social development initiatives across Africa.
– aims to provide any necessary education and training to community volunteers, and
– establishing sustainable and scalable cooperative businesses to provide essential products to meet the needs of the children.

The Lonely Road Foundation believes that the challenge of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children needs to be addressed from within communities and critically, it needs to be managed in a sustainable manner. The focus of the foundation is therefore on empowering and enabling the community as an alternative to direct assistance.

“Our work is primarily based around supporting Orphaned and Vulnerable Children. By partnering with key community members we create independent support networks within each community. This has an obvious immediate benefit, but the process also instils lessons and skills that will be passed down and taught for generations, thereby helping to create self-sustaining growth within these communities.”
