Global challenge created by Shane Vosloo Wednesday, May 25, 2016


Many children lose all hope for the future once they experience the loss of their parents. Parents that would have provided them with unconditional love, respect, attention, education, kindness and much more needed to grow up as the best society has to offer

We as social beings need a way to replace all these immaterial needs that are not being met instead of just providing the physical

There are many examples of children growing up with physical needs not fully met, that still turn into the most beautiful humans this world has to offer. The world would truly be a wonderful place if we could turn kids that nobody wants into adults everyone loves

Children are the future, our hope, and my dream is to create a perfect plan for them

The problem

Children that would have grown up to be a beacon and pillar in society, that are lost due to the loss their parents
