Live to Love (KGCBV Trust)
  • Need

    Need

    Many people suffer and they need love and support. Sadly their nearest and dearest are absent/cannot provide (enough) for them. Children who've lost a parent are looking for extra care. Disadvantaged young people are looking for ways to fit in. Children in the hospital are looking for reasons to smile. NEETS are looking for direction, love and understanding. The forgotten elderly need to find their way back to love.

    Solution

    We provide social groups for disadvantaged young people and orphans as well as one-to-one support through mentors during out-of-school hours. Support will include visits to young patients to cheer them up and if necessary help with homework / meals for the family. NEETS will have their own groups so they can fill their days and hopefully find their way back into education. Some of the socials for young people/NEETS will include visits to the elderly and homebound to help spread the love further.
