What is a Rescue unit?
Rescue units were originally formed as a targeted response to “rescue orphans of the Aids epidemic”. These Rescue units become “hubs” for communities providing:
A structure including a Facilitators home, as week as meeting Pavilion (for Sunday Schools & educational training)
Orphans and adults come to the unit for clothing, food, medical, spiritual assistance, and educational help.
Hands on Educational classes are offered in Agricultural, so they can grow their own gardens, as well as livestock training for those units with livestock.
What is a Base?
A base is the hub for all the Rescue Units in a country. There are normally fulltime training schools that can provide training not possible at the Rescue Unit level.
