Summerhill House is a non-profit organization (registered Section 21) whose sole motivation and vision is to provide homes and personal transformation for orphaned and abandoned children, whose lives have been affected by the HIV / Aids pandemic.
At Summerhill House children’s home we want to give children the one thing that they have lost - family. Families help a child feel safe, loved, secure and ready to thrive, so that’s why our ‘model’ mirrors a family unit as closely as possible. Each house will be home to 6 children and 1 house mother.
The children that will find their home at Summerhill House will have come from a life that has been tainted by HIV / Aids, death or a great loss of some kind. These children will be fostered through to adulthood and given everything they need to thrive. Their education will be facilitated from primary through to tertiary, so that they stand the best possible chance in life and are able to contribute to the world around them.
Our work has been predominantly on the ground thus far where we have placed huge importance on social upliftment in Etete. We are feeding needy families, holding monthly home-group meetings where we have time for teaching and fellowship together. We visit individuals on a weekly basis, assist in acquiring grants and ID documents and work closely with Stanger Child Welfare.
