SFR’s Vulnerable Families program provides housing and income generating support to those families that need it most. This can include Child Headed Households, and families facing daily stigmatization.

The aims of this program are:

• To provide IGA and cooperative management training and facilitation to enable vulnerable families to utilize ECD services
• To provide shelter to the most vulnerable families

SFR is partnered with Human Help Network (Germany) to provide families with shelter and income generating activities. The family shown in the photograph below was stigmatized as a result of one of the children suffering from epilepsy. Consequently the family found it extremely difficult to find housing. SFR with HHN assisted the family by building them the house shown in the photograph below. In addition to living quarters for the family, the house had additional rooms to provide rental income. In addition, SFR with HHN has provided tens of Child Headed Households with proper shelter since 2011.
