As Project Canaan continues to develop, so do the children who live there. It will not be long before the babies who come to us are no longer babies and will have needs that the El Roi Baby Home cannot provide. El Roi is designed to care for children from newborns to age two. When the children pass their second birthday, they will prepare to move into the Toddler Home, which is within the same compound as the El Roi Baby Home and shares the same yard, shade area, and playground.

Not only is this an age-appropriate living facility, it also continually helps make room for more babies to be received at the El Roi Baby Home. Located next to the preschool building so that the toddlers can begin to learn as they grow, “Labakhetsiwe” means “the chosen ones.”

We expect that Project Canaan will be home to hundreds of children in the years to come, and we are thankful for people who invest in the future of these children and help us build the next phase for them to grow and thrive.

We are thankful for your prayers and support for the babies. To become one of our Heart for Africa (Canada) Angels (a monthly supporter of our children) click the button below.
