Child Headed Households
In southern Africa, where Ten Thousand Homes began it’s work, over the last 3 decades families have been devastated by the plight of the HIV/Aids. This crisis has left many young Africans prematurely filling the role of parent in what we call child headed homes. These child-headed families or child-headed households are families in which a minor (child or adolescent) has become the head of the household. We have a mission to help and support these young families.
