How it works:
Depending on the number of children in her care, it costs* between R 650 and R 1250 per month, to adopt a Granny.
The Granny is introduced to the sponsor by way of a photo, with a short description of her situation, e.g. the state of her dwelling, how many children in her care, medical challenges and any other crisis situations that need to be addressed.
The support is paid to Fulami and transferred to the Viva Foundation upon proof of service. The Viva care worker provides a report of each visit and the Granny signs confirmation that she has been visited, received a food parcel etc. The care worker submits her report and findings according to the key indicators of the Child Status Index and a time-sheet of her activities.
The sponsor receives monthly updates and reports and photos, where appropriate.
It is possible for the sponsor to interact with the Granny personally, such as sending Christmas gifts, taking her and the children in her care on outings etc.
