Infinite Family

With all the bad press South Africa has been receiving lately, I feel that someone should share some of the good, that people from South Africa and the United States have been doing to help uplift our society.

Infinite Family is a program that connects African orphans with American communities. Africa has a lot of orphans, mainly because of HIV/AIDS and America has families with diverse and extensive parenting skills and using modern day technology, like video conferencing over satellite, we are bridging the gap, thereby enabling these communities to become mentors to our orphans. It is a great program and I have spoken to some of the orphaned children involved in the program and the growth in confidence and skill of these kids are astonishing.
